Auf dem noch jungen für Art- und Progrock spezialisierten, norwegischen Label Apollon Records erscheint dieses, von Fans schon länger erwartete, Album von Ping. Die Band verquickt dabei gekonnt 60s Roots Rock mit Modern Metal und Electronica. Man ließ sich dabei von Acts wie Frank Zappa, Melvins, Fred Frith, Ween, Deus, Tom Waits oder auch Wilco inspirieren. Gemastert wurde ›The Zig Zag Manoeuvre‹ von Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow, The Opium Cartel).




The Zigzag Manoeuvre might be the description of Ping in 2014, navigating their way out of the ashes of their studio/rehearsal room for thirteen years. When the dust had settled, most of the instruments were immolated, but crucially, all unpublished pieces of music survived. The song “A Hammer Falling from the Sky”, which can be heard on the album, was recorded just two days before the studio went up in flames. A long and arduous process later, with a slight change of personnel, Ping now re-emerges with a roller coaster record, destined to inspire or dull the masses. Expect hiccups and downs, mental order and disorientation, out-of-tune harmonics, as well as motivating and unsettling lyrics: PING - playing experimental Norwegian rock since last millennium. Inspiration from diverse artists like Zappa, Melvins, Fred Frith, Ween, dEUS, Tom Waits and Wilco can be heard through all albums, combining elements from 60´s roots to modern metal and electronica. The process of arranging and recording is unorthodox, where humour and spontaneity is highly appreciated; creative use of various instruments and vocal arrangements flow through a number of genres.
