4 stars So, it has leaked) I believe there's Zions' hand in this act, like two years ago with "13 Blues" album, which was also leaked more than a month before its release. And this is not the only thing similar to "13 Blues" - in fact, musically "Kollaps Tradixionales" sounds like a previous album's little brother.

Again there's something weird with tracklist: 4 original songs are divided into 7 tracks. I've already heard the first two ones from live bootlegs; "There's A Light" is soft and emotional hymn a-la "Blindblindblind", pretty uplifting, and "Metal Bird" is on the contrary heavy and brooding tune, filled with complex signatures, groovy riffs and powerful vocals. Two other tracks, 3-part "Kollaps" epic and closing "'Piphany Rambler", follow almost the same scheme, maintained by "13 Blues": arrangements are less subtle/more rocky, lyrics and vocals are the same way disturbing (in a good sense), mellow melodies replaced with roaring guitars and boy I love it! If you liked two recent Zion's albums, you'll definitely like this one as well, though it's neither groundbreaking nor their best. Highly recommended!
