Another branch in the Gong family tree, Gongzilla was a reassembly of several of the members of early Pierre Moerlin's Gong and played a similar style jazz-rock fusion. Formed in 1994 by guitarist Ben Lozaga and bassist Hansford Rowe, the group was rounded out by guitarist Allan Holdsworth, percussionist Bobby Thomas Jr., and vibraphonist Beniot Moerlen. They released Suffer in 1995, which found the band exploring some more hard rock stylings than Piere Moerlin's Gong. The album was ranked the number three fusion album of the year by Pulse!. Thrive followed in 1996 which added drummer Gary Husband and guitarist David Torn to the mix while featuring Rowe on vocals.
