Zhaoze biography
Founded in Guangzhou, China in 2000

A Guqin is a traditional Chinese instrument. It's the strings instrument that gives the Chinese folk music the particular mood that it has. Zhaoze not only is likely the only one band using this instrument,but the first applying magnets and effects to it. This is a distinctive characteristic of their post-rock. The four band members use nicknames, so there are almost no information about them. ZHAOZE is a word in mandarin Chinese (the band is from Guangzhou) and means "swamp". Their music is sometimes borderline with Newage, mainly because of the beautiful sound of the Guqin, but it's only one of the many elements of their music. Since 2002 the band has collected a huge amount of prizes and awards. The album "Yesternight Yes Tonight" has won the Chinese media awards as best album of 2017.

Review by Beautiful Scarlet

— First review of this album —
3 stars One 40 minute long song, Birds Contending, makes up the album. It is composed of bass drums guitar and guxin with some violin. It is also very dull. The music does not go anywhere and could be a soundtrack for a film. Not something to listen to alone as it not engaging music. Noticeable aspects of the music are probably the drums which at times provide a tribal beat and the frequent mood changes (guitar chugging along then some guxin chill stuff then some harder stuff then soft again and again and again.

Overall this album is at best background music that goes nowhere and drags on and on.

Thanks to octopus-4 for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
