Irish hardcore/groove metal band Zhi Ren are about to release their first E.P. “Who Fucked The Monkey?” Following their debut video “Hypocrisy”, the EP is due for release on the 25th of this month. The video has been premiered on Overblown who have described the track as “a pummeling and cacophonous beast ”
The band are currently booking a number of tour dates across Ireland.
Spawned in the depths of West Cork, Zhi Ren have emerged from winter’s cold embrace to impart onto you the fruits of their frigid seclusion. The newly formed four piece are shedding the skin from past genres, creating a sonance that will take you through their twisted world.
Elephantine riffs and stygian darkness, with a groove as deep as the abyss. Amidst the wailing guitars and guttural vocals you will be sheathed in a disturbing ambience that will linger with you in the darkest shadows.
