Arriving June 8th is the sophomore release, "Stranger Fruit" from Zeal & Ardor. The brains behind the music comes from Manuel Gagneux as he looks to grow his sound with this new 16-track release. He mixes blues and soul together on the rough, emotional opening of "Graveyard Chant," before delivering an all-out rock assault with the chorus of "Servants." He quickens the pace of "Don't You Dare" with a guitar frenzy and raging vocals as he continues adding to his music mixture with the hardcore metal appeal of "Fire Of Motion" and the enchanted gospel tones of "The Hermit." Gagneux lays down the power of his delivery during "Ship Of Fire" and "Waste," before finishing up his new album with the thick, heavy-hitting blues of "We Can't Be Found" and the rock gospel closer "Built On Ashes."
