Naked City is alive !
Zorn returns here with a great taste of his freaky deconstructed heavy metal. Six highly constructed pieces that are not offering something really new, but take on and challenge his best works in this field ( "Grand Guignol" etc...), with the persistant drummer Joey Baron alongside the vocal mastery of Mike Patton suiting perfectly in the tracks led by Boredoms vocalist Yamatsuka Eye. In fact, Patton is Eye and reverse, this is just Zorn ability to let come out some of the most inhuman shrouds & screams you never thought able to produce.
Forget Fantômas, Patton can do what he wants but we allways come back to the roots, John Zorn is the undisputed master in the art of mixing metal with 50's bop lines and Bernard Herman vs Giacinto Scelsi weird classical madness.
