Zao "The Well-Intentioned Virus"

Whoever is still in this band seems committed to culminating everything Zao was in the early to mid 90's and shove it in between a stocked shelf and attempt to present relevance in an ultra polluted pond. Seeing the Zao release on monthly lists instantly draws attention to anyone who's even remotely into hardcore, but there's nothing that interesting or thought provoking on the album. Perhaps the vocal melodies in the title track, or maybe it's the fact that the brand still churns after so many years away from the spotlight, but with so much already in the cupboard these days, it feels as if Zao is better left behind in a time when physical copies reigned supreme. This one just seems forgettable to me.
