Nicholas Affatato Lacking the pretentiousness of their contemporaries, Zud is good at what it does. The weaving of rock and roll with black metal is done in a way that doesn't push away fans of either genre as stand alone. Dynamic, well constructed song writing with a pure energy live show that is something you'd need to experience at least once. Don't pass this release over, and expect substantial growth in their next output.

“… a lot more fun to listen to than Watain.” – Decibel

“The Good, the Bad and the Damned is one of the coolest albums I have come across this year… a style I didn’t know I wanted until I came across this release, and now I just want to keep going back” – Cosmos Gaming

"a sick and twisted mix of classic riffs and black metal evil.” – Cvlt Nation

“… like Quorthon fronting Van Halen…” – Ave Noctum

“…a jet-fueled charge of something like first-wave black metal combined with filthy rock ‘n’ roll. The drumming is off the hook, the riffs are more fun than a barrel of monkeys on meth, and the clean guitar solo is a banshee screamer. The vocals are also evil, vicious, and intelligible. Refreshingly different metal…” – No Clean Singing

“…tuneful, economical and heartfelt – no fret wanking, just wild abandon and soul.” – Black Insect Laughter
