Zapruder – Zapruder

Having a vital member of the band move halfway across the world hasn’t stopped France’s Zapruder from enjoying themselves. Others would have felt the blow of their vocalist leaving way harder than this particular rock’n’roll act. Over two and a half years since everyone’s favourite Heavy Blog cretin wrote about their last offering of souped-up mathcore, Zapruder are back with a big, bold as brass record that swings piss-drunk from the light fixtures, gleefully throwing shit at the walls.
