Album Review

Propelled by a frantic speed-streak not seen this side of Texas' Speedealer, Seattle's Zeke straddle that fine line between hardcore and speed metal on their sixth album — and first since getting back together as a slimmed-down trio — Til the Livin' End. Produced by alternative rock guru Jack Endino, the album's "15 tracks in 30 minutes" approach kind of says it all about both the band and their music; but before you automatically envision the Ramones (they're here as well, but mostly in spirit), think Motörhead gone hardcore, since tracks like "Long Train Runnin'," "Hold Tight," and the very "Metropolis"-ish "Dragonfly" all recall the immortal Lemmy and his charges. The agonized howl of singer/guitarist Blind Marky Felchtone is partly to blame there, but really, no complaints. And frankly, who knows if Motörhead ever achieved the shocking velocity of Zeke's "The Hammer." Other than that, it's rather remarkable to hear Felchtone effortlessly driving the Zeke bullet train — rounded out by the so-tight-it's-stoopid rhythm section of bassist Diamond Jeff Matz and drummer Donny Paycheck — while holding down this considerable workload with nary a bum note in sight. And thankfully, just when both their speaker cabinets and most listeners' intensity thresholds are approaching an utter and complete melting point, Zeke ease off the throttle just a smidgeon on the likes of "Little Queen," the oddly named "Dolphin Wolf," and the closing tandem of "Ride to Live" and "Ever Onward" (which may sound like the title to a Manowar track — but it ain't!). In summary, Til the Livin' End sounds like a concerted statement of an album, and if it was intended to announce Zeke's official comeback, it did so with authority.

Customer Reviews

WOW!

THESE GUYS ARE GREAT! i found this band when i was bored and discided to type my naim into itunes. now im hooked!

MORE PEOPLE SHOULD HEAR ZEKE!

Another full throttle recording from one of the best in hard rock! YEAH! Zeke's production sound seems to differ from album to album, but Zeke always Kicks You In The Teeth.

An exponential leap in quality for an amazing band

TACOMA based (not Seattle, alternative press) rawk band Zeke drops the hammer on its best record yet. Felchtone's got a voice for heavy rock - a strangled gravelly bark that counterpoints the punishing drums and excellent heavy guitar and bass work perfectly. The guitar and bass makes for a wall of noise that makes it impossible to believe this is a trio, while the drums just don't quit. This is one to crank in the garage while getting the panhead chopper up and running, or tuning the big bore big block muscle car you're restoring, before rinsing the grease off your tattoos, taking a few shots of whiskey, and going out looking for some moshing and fighting. Rock is not dead. There are still some bands making it happen and keeping it real. This disk CANNOT get a higher rating, cause it just doesn't get ANY better than this. If you think you knew Zeke, give this one a listen.
