Album Notes
FREE Digital Download Card Included which comes with one bonus track (Samurai Swords Remix). What the hell is the European Experiment anyway? Well, the experiment is essentially seeing what happens when you let a rapper write, not only rap songs, but rock songs too. Additionally, the rapper, Kwest, developed most all of the melodies and even wrote several of the lead guitar riffs on the album. Zinne, the band, initially had very little interest in Rap music until the title song (and first song recorded for the album) was completed. Once Samurai Swords was done, everyone was on board with the project and then the real fun started. Many of the songs were written by Nick, Bart and Shawn in Bart's messy apartment (also featured in the music video for Gone). But it was there among the empty beer bottles and half eaten tins of curry take out, where the magic happened. Those raw recordings were captured there and then later refined at Zinne Studios. Some of the songs remain almost exactly the same as those original writing session recordings, while others went through some significant changes to become what they are today. You hear a little bit of everything when you listen to the album. There are sounds like Rage Against The Machine, Linkin Park, The Offspring, The Beach Boys, The Doors and so much more. Somehow, it all comes together as a unique KVZ sound.
