Zazu

 

One-shot band who released this monster heavy prog-rock gem on the Wooden Nickel label (Styx's first label) in 1975 to general indifference. Their singer does sound like Styx's Dennis DeYoung but their music is nothing like Styx. heavy prog guitar riffs, wild keys and complex arrangements. The standout track is the incredible 10 minute "Ittsanottasonata, But It's Close" (you get the picture...). If you like your prog with a heavy edge this is a must.
