Following the 1987 breakup of Amebix, 3 of the 4 members went on to form Zygote in 1988. Featuring Chris “Stig” Miller, Robert “Spider” Richards, George “Smutpig” Fletcher joined by Smartpils bassist Tim Crow.
In the short 3-year existence of the band they managed to produce a 1990 demo tape and a 1991 full-length “A Wind Of Knives”. Pine Hill Records is proud to present the first ever USA release of “A Wind Of Knives”, out today, December 2nd.
The record is also available for the very first time on major streaming platforms!
On this collaboration, Tino Valpa (Pine Hill Records’ founder), comments: “It’s an album I’ve been listening to since I was 16. I actually listened to more Zygote than I did Amebix and really dug it. I love both those bands. I reached out to them and it came together pretty quickly. It makes perfect sense to do. That record has had such minimal appearances over here. It’s time to make it available for once!”
