Taking its name from the 50-foot effigy burned every year by a hysterical mob during the Fiestas De
Santa Fe in Santa Fe, NM, ZOZOBRA is the brainchild of Caleb Scofield (Cave In/Old Man Gloom)
and to carry on his musical legacy, the two ZOZOBRA albums “Harmonic Tremors” (2007) and
“Bird Of Prey (2008) can now be streamed everywhere on all streaming platforms once again. Also
both albums will see their respective vinyl releases sometime spring next year, the first time they will
be officially issued on vinyl for widespread distribution (previous editions were tour-only editions and
the Caleb memorial version).
Following on “Harmonic Tremors” seismic heels, “Bird Of Prey” was originally released in 2008 via
Hydra Head Records respectively and features drummer Aaron Harris (Isis) who also recorded and
mixed “Bird Of Prey”. Scofield’s second full-length under the ZOZOBRA moniker is a white-hot
exploder shot through with snaking melody lines and implacable riffs. From front to back, Scofield’s
signature roar is tempered by his own gleaming backup chants; meanwhile, an arsenal of guitars
alternately churns and shimmers in the flames of ZOZOBRA’s effigial namesake.
