Tzimani are a two-piece from San Diego that have been around since 2017 and have toured pretty frequently since their inception. This has garnered them enough of a following to justify a re-release of their self-titled EP, here including a couple of covers and their first demo for added value.

This duo plays a slightly commercial stripe of old-school Heavy Metal that doesn't sound too far off from bands like W.A.S.P. and even early Motley Crue in places. The playing is tight, the melodic work is particularly sharp, and the raspy, Hard Rock-esque vocals of Eddie Vazquez have energy and charisma to spare. However, the songwriting is pretty obvious and safe, never straying far from the verse-chorus structure, and some of the choruses can be a little too lightweight for my tastes. That said, this isn't really made to be hard-hitting or innovative, it's meant to let you kick back and remember a time when bands in denim and leather dominated the airwaves. If Tzimani keeps doing it this well, then I won't fault them for it.
