Zeal & Ardor

When biracial Basel musician Manuel Gagneux asked 4chan's music board what two styles of music to combine as an experiment, he predictably received the answers 'black metal' and 'ni**er music'; subverting the racist joke into a biting piece of social commentary, he started Zeal & Ardor, combining black metal with the Black slavery-era tradition of spirituals. The project debuted with 2016's Devil Is Fine, juxtaposing the horror of slavery, described in a Delta blues-inspired vocal style, with metal influences ranging from black to melodeath; the album was featured in several best-of-year lists. Zeal & Ardor have since released two more studio albums, played with the likes of Opeth, Mastodon, Deafheaven and Meshuggah, and performed at festivals including Montreux, Primavera, Lowlands and Reading.
