Gozu first emerged on the scene in 2010, after the release of their seven track, self-titled EP. Fronted by Marc Gaffney vocals and guitar, Doug Sherman on guitar, Joe Grotto on bass, and Mike Hubbard on drums, Small Stone Records soon snapped up Gozu, releasing their critically acclaimed album "Locust Season" that same year.
Gozu spent the next year touring the Northeast with bands like St. Vitus, Pallbearer, Lo Pan, Helmet, Elder, Church of Misery, and Fu Manchu. Shadowing the success of Locust Season, Gozu returned to the studio in 2013, recording their sophomore full-length album "The Fury of a Patient Man". Fury displays Gozu still driven by Gaff’s butter melting melodies and Doug’s mega-thick riffs. Gozu’s songs have aired on national television, broadcast via MTV (Road Rules, Dudesons, Real World), NBC, and NASCAR. Late 2014 sends Gozu off on their first European tour, performing at both Roadburn in Tilburg, Netherlands, and DesertFest Berlin with Yob, Church of Misery and Kvelertak. Gozu headed into Wild Arctic Studio in 2015, working with Dean Baltulonis (Primitive Weapon, Sick Of It All, Hatebreed) to record their much-celebrated third album, “Revival” (Ripple Music). Gozu now announces a new development in their signing on with Blacklight Media, a brand-new imprint from Metal Blade Records. Blacklight Media was founded by celebrity chef Chris Santos, in collaboration with Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel. The future looks charged bright for Gozu.
