Album Review

A clever alternate spelling of their namesake and bass player, this metal outfit forcefully demonstrates that the greatest metal recordings of all time owe much of their heaviness to Geezer Butler. G//Z/R even appears to target Tony Iommi — whose contribution to Black Sabbath is often described in more significant terms than that of Butler — on the vicious "Giving Up the Ghost." With more than enough power to eclipse any sans-Butler Black Sabbath or Iommi project, this 1995 release proves its creative point. Engineer Paul Northfield deserves special credit for fusing the punishing sounds of guitarist Pedro Howse and drummer Deen Castronovo with Butler's famous low end. Fear Factory vocalist Burton C. Bell's holler wears a little thin at times, but he never crowds G//Z/R's super-heavy riffs. With its historic membership and rock-solid execution, Plastic Planet reaches rarely achieved metal heights.

Customer Reviews

not bad

Plastic Planet is an average effort on behalf of Geezer Butler, however, his reputation precedes him. While tracks like Catatonic Eclipse and Drive Boy, Shooting rip with their sonic-boom like presence; Cycle of Sixty and Sci-Clone seem thrown together and lack-luster. WIth the presence of the former Black Sabbath bassist, we have Burton Bell whom is a main-stay in music of the like. Unfortunately this effort does not reflect what he is truly capable of.

great

this album is awesome. only two songs are blah, the rest rock. geezer rules! saw them live in 96. wow! what a show!

My Dream!!

This is where I had hoped Sabbath would venture!!.......Pounding Bass riffs just show how important Geezer was the Sabbath sound....There were much more than Iommi's riff's.....Good album......

Biography

Formed: July 17, 1949 in Birmingham, England

Years Active: '00s

Original Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler had wanted to embark on a solo recording career since back in the '80s, but the opportunity — and more importantly, the right group of musicians — was never provided to the godfather of all heavy metal bassists until 1995 when the musician released Plastic Planet on TVT Records under the moniker of GZR. While many fans might have been unaware of the group's substantial metal lineage due to the confusing name, those in the know were surely sated...
