4 stars US band FREAK ZOID was formed in 2005 with Scott McGill, Ritchie DeCarlo and Kjell Benner as the initial line-up. They released their self-titled debut album in 2007. The same year they expanded to a quartet with the inclusion of Dave Kloss, and this expanded line-up released "Freak Zoid Returns" on their own Uniblab label in 2011.

Eclectic, virtuoso instrumental music ranging from free form jazz to frantic metal-tinged excursions in style is what Freak Zoid explores on "Freak Zoid Returns". With an arguable foundation in fusion, those fond of experimental, complex instrumental music performed by skilled instrumentalists should find this production to be a real treat. A certain fascination for performances with an improvisational touch will most likely be an advantage, and an interest in shredding and more or less tortured and otherwise eerie guitar sounds is probably needed as well to truly enjoy this experience.
