Zed / Press

“Songwriting is a craft, an art, and Zed has studied under rock history's greatest. They’ve lived with the Zeppelin’s, Floyd’s, Beatles, and Stones, as well as a laundry list of more modern artists and have studied the art of piecing note to note, lyric to lyric, melody to melody, so forth and onward. And, they’ve crafted themselves a near perfect record. This Zed ain’t dead, baby…this one’s just getting started and I, for one, can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeve for the next release.”

“The word "infectious" can be overused at times, but when it comes to describing this album from San Francisco's ZED, infectious is the only way to describe "Desperation Blues". It's a heavy, melodic, sleazy, whiskey-drenched slice of rock and roll.”

““Desperation Blues,” a monumental, smooth and funky grind leave a nice “blues metal” taste in my mouth, an allusion to thumb through my iTunes in search for a similar sound following a full listen of this new ten track monster of an album.”

“Make no mistake, “Desperation Blues” is heavy as f*ck. But Zed’s form of ‘heavy’ goes beyond the riff, pulling at emotions and an energy that doesn’t rely on volume or sonic intensity.””

“I cannot tell you how many times I have listened to this album in the last few weeks, and it is destined for a permanent spot in my playlists.”

“This four piece band from San Jose, California is a great band to introduce to your radio listening friends. They have that appeal to draw in that crowd but still keep their independent stoner sound. Singer Pete Sattari has a voice that is very similar to Travis Meeks (Days of The New). It really comes out in the opening track. That’s where the comparisons stop though. The entire album is heavy hitting and hard rocking. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about “Halo,” “A Drug,” or “Somebody.” You can really get into the album on your drive somewhere, sitting around the house or if you’re having your friends over for some beers or whatnot. ”

“Hey all you ZED fans out there. It has been too long since we’ve posted on here. That’s about to change. With our new demo almost done and engineered by Master Juan Kinobi at Trident Studios, we will be focusing on shows shows shows”
