Kaizen - Supporting Continual Improvement (Independent) - Back
Kaizen is back with more music to rip your head off. Stylistically they are a mix of death metal. and hardcore with a touch of electronica. They are influenced by Meshuggah, Pantera, Sepultura, Napalm Death and Strapping Young Lad. I think they might be influenced by Fear Factory as well, at least it sounds like it. This creates a sound that is intense, brutal, and powerful like a death metal band. The disk is called "Supporting Continual Improvement" and the five tracks last a shade over twenty minutes. All of the songs have their moments, but my favorite is track three "Out Are The Wolves." "Spearhead Of Lies," "Colorblind," and the re-recorded version of "Leadersheep" are also strong tracks as well. I'm surprised that no label has even talked about picking these guys up. I think they have potential, and with a good producer could become a well known band.
