Thanks for the love, KZSC!


ZEDHEADS would like to thank Bucky Brown over at The Sludgelord for including ZED’s Desperation Blues on his list of ‘Top 25 albums of 2013!”  You can view the entire list here, which was published February 22, 2014.

Once again 2013 blew me away with the quality and quantity of releases that passed through my ears. It was painstaking picking out a top 25 and I had over 100 albums that on any given day could have made this list. But it came down to album plays and overall impact for me.

I did some looking around on The Sludgelord website and really liked it. They feature bands that fall within the Stoner/Doom/Sludge/Fuzz/Post-Metal/Experimental/Black Metal/Psych genres. Check ’em out!


DRUM|PRIME’s editor-in-chief had the opportunity to sit down with Bay Area drummer, Rich Harris, to talk about his work with his band, Zed. In this audio cast, we get a glimpse into the band, as well as Rich’s approach to the drums, his influences, and gear.

Radio CHU, a campus radio station operated by Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii has announced that the title track from ZED’s new record, Desperation Blues has charted #3 on their ‘Top 10 Loud Chart‘ for the week of June 17th, 2013. In addition, the same song charted #27 overall for the station’s ‘Top 30’ songs for the same week!

This follows ‘Desperation Blues charting #9 on Radio CMU’s ‘Top 10 Loud Chart’ for the week of June 3rd, 2013, #6 for the week of  May 27th 2013, and #6 for the week of May 20th 2013. It seems this song has charted on CUH Radio since the album was released, and has been steadily rising ever since!

Great news!
