Check out our recent interview with GOZU:

GOZU released their fifth full-length album, Remedy, last Spring via Blacklight Media / Metal Blade Records. The record seamlessly delivers nine tracks of the band’s signature combination of fuzzy, ’70s-inspired riffs, rich, catchy, grunge-esque vocal melodies, and a touch of old-school psychedelia written and played with the utmost passion and enthusiasm.

One element bolstering Remedy is drummer Seth Botos who joins vocalist/guitarist Marc Gaffney, guitarist Doug Sherman, and bassist Joe Grotto. “Seth brought such an impeccable work ethic and freshness to the band that it was infectious,” recalls Gaffney. “He is the breath of delicious fresh air the three old men needed. He reminds us of a young Kevin Bacon/Wayne Rooney.”

Recording with honorary fifth member of GOZU, producer/engineer Dean Baltulonis (Death Ray Vision, The Hope Conspiracy), at Wild Arctic Studios in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, sessions were unlike any that the band had previously experienced. Botos laid his drums down in just a day-and-a-half, taking all suggestions his bandmates had and putting his signature spin on them, echoing the fact that they were all invested in the process more than ever before. The final product was ultimately met with approval from fans and critics alike. Denver Westword wrote, “Remedy is a perfect mix of what GOZU does best: spacey psychedelia, fuzzy stoner rock and galloping rock and roll.” Distorted Sound concurred, “…this album has a little bit of everything… it’s gnarly guitar and vocals galore that just oozes with confidence and coolness. Remedy was certainly worth the wait.” Added Sputnik Music, “This is an album that reaches beyond the stoner sphere, expanding the band’s horizons into the metal territory.”
