  • Zeni Geva ist eine japanische Noise-Rock-Band. Sie wurde vom Sänger, Gitarristen und späteren Musikproduzenten KK Null (eigentlich Kazuyuki Kishino) im Jahr 1987 in Tokio als "progressive hardcore trio" gegründet. Die Musik der Band enthält daher neben Elementen verschiedener Metal-Genres auch Anleihen aus Noise-Rock, Progressive Rock und Hardcore Punk. Der Name der Band setzt sich aus den Worten „Zeni“, einem alten japanischen Wort für „Geld“, und „Geva“, abgeleitet vom deutschen Wort „Gewalt“, zusammen. (de)
  • Zeni Geva is a Japanese noise rock band featuring singer and guitarist KK. Null and drummer Tatsuya Yoshida. Formed in Tokyo in 1987, the group's name translates roughly as "money violence" ("Zeni" is an old Japanese term for money, and "Geva" comes from the German "Gewalt," meaning "violence"). 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 technically unorthodox and demanding, and has earned progressive rock comparisons: critic Patrick Kennedy describes their 1993 album Desire for Agony as resembling "Motörhead meets King Crimson." The Chicago-based Skin Graft Records has released much of the band's music in North America, and the band released several albums with the American Alternative Tentacles label. (en)

  • Zeni Geva è una band giapponese noise rock nata dall'incontro tra il cantante e chitarrista KK Null e il batterista . Nato a Tokyo nel 1987, il nome del gruppo si traduce approssimativamente in "violenza monetaria" ("Zeni" è un vecchio termine giapponese per denaro, e "Geva" deriva dal tedesco "Gewalt", che significa "violenza"). La musica dei Zeni Geva può essere varia e sperimentale, incorporando elementi che vanno dal death metal all'hardcore punk, al math rock, alla psichedelia e al noise rock. La loro musica è spesso tecnicamente poco ortodossa ed esigente, tanto da essere paragonata da alcuni al rock progressivo: il critico Patrick Kennedy descrive il loro album del 1993 come simile ai "Motörhead che incontrano i King Crimson". La Skin Graft Records di Chicago ha pubblicato gran parte della musica della band in Nord America. Altri album uscirono per la statunitense Alternative Tentacles. (it)
