Nice album review in Sonic Seducer, June 2023:
ZEBECK « Dharma » (Wormholedeath Records)
After several band configurations had worn out, the French-Swedish guitarist, composer and arranger Thomas Frisk decided to realize his idea of an interlocking of heavy metal elements with the rather fluffy and relaxed ones of fusion jazz on his own. The results, which can now be marveled at in the form of a second recording, suggest that he has succeeded in carrying out his intention in an appealing manner. With his Zebeck project, he is obviously not trying to derive the greatest possible bang effects from the supposed clash of musical cultures ( as, for example, the Panzerballett does). On the contrary. A basic conception oriented towards harmonic coherence rubs and nestles here against a play instinct focused on the creation of plausibility, which for a long time - at least at moderate volume - lulls rather than whips up. But just this renunciation of a thick-headed demanding of attention ( as well as of any singing) forces to concentrated listening. And when the volume control is turned more and more to the right, the punch potential of this rather unpretentious performance is revealed. Sonorous understatement as a Trojan horse, so to speak. That rather paws its hooves instead of howling loudly.
