Maze

Maze is a tenacious adventure through the murky waters of the genre-defying unknown. trioVD, three heavyweights of the North's improvisational scene, make deeply leftfield music to shock and inspire; picture John Coltrane and Mesuggah collaborating on a David Lynch soundtrack. As much an acoustic interpretation of Squarepusher as it is an electronic incarnation of Sun Ra, this aural assault is best served up at high volumes to the extremely open-minded. More >>

"tightly-argued thrash-metal improv referencing John Zorn and James Blood Ulmer"

The Guardian
4 Stars
"this fearlessly independent band reaches audiences that purer jazz distillations rarely do"
more >>

PROG, Classic Rock
"Inspired, intense and madder than a stoat in a box of wasps, Maze is a marvel"
more >>

MOJO
3 Stars
"The staccato axe, sax and drums attack will remind jazzers of John Zorn, proggers of the mid-section from 21st Century Schizoid Man"
more >>

Blog Island
"Trouncing guitar and saxophone riffs are dealt without mercy... irresistible adrenaline rush"


BBC Music Magazine
5 Stars
"an improvisational jazz force to be reckoned with"

Jazz Mann
4 Stars
"energy, inventiveness and sheer chutzpah makes [trioVD] one of the UK's most exciting young groups in any genre"
more >>

Terrorizer
3 Stars
"With a Mr Bungle reunion looking as likely as a five ace hand, this versatile trio might just tickle your chin-stroking fancy."
more >>

BBC.co.uk
"one of the most inventive and transgressive albums you'll encounter this year"
more >>

Metro
"it's hard to imagine how anyone could resist the Leeds group's battering-ram charms. It's Coltrane-meets-wrecking ball and could well be the jazz-metal album of the year."

Jazzwise
3 Stars
"a little like Battles but with more bite...all adds up to a compelling and ultra-modern work of weird intelligence"
more >>

Beatwolf
"tightly played, elaborately conceived, and definitely not what you'd expect from three lads hailing from Leeds...a sonic assault"
more >>

Music OMH
4 Stars
"like Battles turned up to eleven...an embarrassment of riches"
more >>

Stereoboard
"so wonderfully mental that they make perfectly sane people want to give the next stranger they see a gigantic warm hug and kick them in the midriff at the same time"
more >>

Room Thirteen
4 Stars
"a combo of Rolo Tomassi and the left field jazz of Polar Bear...just about as far from easy listening as you could ever get"
more >>

Glasswerk
"I have simply never heard anything quite like this before. Ever...truly unique"
more >>

Dead Press
4 Stars
"This is an experimental jazz masterclass and probably the perfect ice-breaker for rock and pop fans alike"
