Album Review: Zombie Nation – Zombielicious

imagesI’m sure you don’t need telling who Zombie Nation are especially as they created Kenkraft 300 – one of the biggest club anthems of all time. So, their new album Zombielicious better be good. I’m happy to say that having owned it for about a week now, I love it and can’t stop playing it.

Listening to the album turns whatever location you may be in into a raving nightclub. A frenzy of fuzz and drum beats make up the sound behind Zombie Nation and with all tracks being at least four minutes in length, it takes a hell of a lot of energy to get through the record in one listen. Zombielicious may sound funny but the tracks have a no-nonsense attitude to them as electronic and techno melodies get blasted out.

Annoyingly for your neighbours, the songs sound great loud like most electronic music yet at low volume levels, the quirky Zombie Nation sound is never a disappointment. “Mystery Meat Affair” is one of the highlights on the album with a burst of synths that sound like they would fit in with 1960’s arcade games and a steady techno beat keeps it melodic. The album is a bit of a monster itself with 14 tracks and track 4, Radio Controlled, is another great hit. Being one of the few songs with vocals, it offers a bit of variety. A huge hook to be remembered and repeated bellowed short phrases all help make it extra special.

The record will keep you listening for nearly an hour, but that short time will have you out of breath and in need of a refreshing beverage. Zombielicious is a must buy and can fit into almost any playlist or music collection.
