Zombi: Shape Shift

Album Review

Instrumental mavericks refine their blueprint

Although they’re not the only metal-friendly band devoted to creating fresh soundtracks for the twisted movies of our imagination, Zombi are the greatest.

 Shape Shift eschews the pulsing Giorgio Moroder-isms of 2011’s Escape Velocity in favour of an immaculate upgrade of the synth-drenched cerebral trips of yore. But this is no retrograde step; instead, the surging atmospherics and incisive beats of Total Breakthrough and Diffraction Zone feel like tried and tested ideas transferred from small screen to some vast, cosmic IMAX theatre.
