The South African rock industry can get ready to welcome a new generation of talented musicians to the scene. Zengeance, the young new rock outfit from Bellville in Cape Town, formed by three enthusiastic teenagers can rock the socks off of any crowd. Their sound is fresh and lively and similar in a way to some classic rock groups like Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, whom they also draw their musical inspiration from. These three rockers might be young and somewhat inexperienced in life, but they take their music very seriously. Zengeance is releasing their debut EP, Black Pistol which was recorded by Alex Power, produced by Dirk Ace and mastered by multi SAMA award winner Peter Pearlson, today. At a first glance, Zengeance’s soulful sound is not what you would ordinarily expect from a group of teenagers. Their musical abilities are well developed and they have a good understanding of each other which enables them to work well together as professional musicians.

This rock-trio also knows what it takes to put on a good show. They proved this at their latest gig at Melts when they delivered a powerful show which left the crowd very impressed. Zengeance will be introducing their new ‘zeneration’ of rock later this month at their official launch event in the Cape Town area. More details regarding the launch will be announced soon.
Just like many other teenagers, Erick Zulch, Wian Brand and Lafras Uys dream to make it big and experience as much of the world and of music as they possibly can. Music is in their blood and with the help and support of some Afrikaans rock legends like Dirk Ace (Voëlvry Tour, 1989) and their families, they hope to share their music with as many people as they possibly can.
