TANZEN is a progressive/altmetal band from Chicago, IL. Their latest EP Shizoku is a peek into a new direction for the band on the first two songs 'Zombie's Dust' and 'What Are the Rules?' as they blend ambient guitars, low tuning, upbeat grooves, and melodic vocals.
“Left Swipe continues in the same vein as the band’s 2017 full-length album Shizoku, which was a pummeling low-end spectacle with some genuine heart embedded in the mix."
"Sometimes, bands with progressive/djent leanings manage to create that perfect unison between heavy and gentle. And none in recent times have achieved it with more expertise than TANZEN." - Everything is Noise
"The music instantly reminds one of acts like Monuments and Tesseract, without ever becoming just another clone version of the former. Its quite evident that TANZEN are aiming to create their own niche sonic identity." - ItDjentsTV
In addition to their own individual success, they have jumped on any and every show to help get the music into the hands of anyone that would listen. Having recently supported Erra, Fit For an Autopsy, Veil of Maya, The Summer Slaughter Tour and venturing out of genre to open for Twenty One Pilots and Wale at the UIC pavilion, TANZEN plans on shattering genre boundaries and blending in wherever people are willing to listen.
TANZEN dares to ask the listener 'What Are the Rules?' while the band throws the rules out the window and lets the music do the talking.
