Line-up

ZEAL & ARDOR

CH

Of all the weird combos in rock music, the adapted gospel-blackmetal style of Zeal & Ardor must rank highest on the scale of 'shouldn't work, but somehow does wonderfully'. Manuel Gagneux didn't stop there though, he took the idea and turned it from a bedroom project into one of the most kickass live bands in the field today. While the project retains Gagneux' unique and sublime musical vision, last year's sophomore album 'Stranger Fruit' proves Zeal & Ardor is not just a clever gimmick, but a work of supreme originality.
