Zao - The Funeral Of God

I was really holding out hope that Zao would come up with something new that would blow everyone out of the water by doing something original. I was wrong. This is every song they've previously written, hashed and rehashed to death.

I have been following this band since "All Else Failed" and "Splinter Shards...", and personally think their best release is "Where Blood and Fire Bring Rest" - but everything they have done after "Liberate Te Ex Inferis" has been stale and generic.

There are a few brights spots on this CD, but for the most part I don't think I'll ever bother listening to anything besides "Where Blood..." by Zao again.

Yeah, I lost interest in that band after Save Yourself from Hell as well. Like I've been saying, they shoulda stayed broken up like 2 or 3 reunions ago, haha.

the cd is growing on me, but it is the worst cd with Dan.... I saw them with misery signals and they were incredible though.

While the music isn't quite up to par with "Liberate Te Ex Inferis" and "Where Blood and Fire Bring Rest", it's better than the last couple of outings, and the overall concept is pulled off rather well.
