ZENI GEVA is a Japanese prog-hardcore band, led by singer and guitarist KK Null, one pioneering group of innovators and legends. Formed
inTokyo in 1987, the group's name translates roughly as "money violence" ("Zeni" is an old Japanese term for money, and "Geva" comes
fromthe German "Gewalt," meaning "violence"). Though broadly classified as metal, Zeni Geva's music can be diverse and
experimental,incorporating elements ranging from death metal and hardcore punk to math rock, psychedelic, and noise rock. Their music is
often technicallyunorthodox and demanding, and has earned progressive rock comparisons: critic Patrick Kennedy describes their 1993 album
Desire forAgony as resembling "Motörhead meets King Crimson."
