Zun are a band from California that plays desert/stoner rock and this is a review of their 2016 album "Burial Sunrise" which was released by Small Stone Recordings.
Distorted drones start off the album along with some clean playing a few seconds later which also brings in the atmosphere of being in a desert and after awhile melodic vocals make their presence known on the recording and the music also brings in elements of ambient and after awhile melodic guitar leads become a part of the songs.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while some of the drum beats bring a tribal and shamanistic feeling to the recording and some songs also bring in female vocals and when slide guitars are utilized they bring in a touch of blues rock and psychedelic elements can be heard at times along with a touch od 70's proto metal and the whole album also sticks to a very slow musical direction.
Zun plays a style of stoner/desert rock that goes more for the psychedelic and ambient side of the genre and creates an atmospheric sounding recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and desolate themes.
In my opinion Zun are a very great sounding desert rock band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Into the Wasteland" and "Solar incantation". 8 out of 10.
