Skillful and novel, Guntzepaula (槍擊潑辣) is a power trio consisting of prominent musicians. Compared with how bands in Taiwan sound generally, the music of Guntzepaula is more experimental and progressive with harsher and dissonant sounds. However, their unique approach to explore creative sparks related to music structures brings lots of joy.
Their second album, “Black Lotus” (黑色蓮花), tries to build solid bridges between bass, guitar and drums, pushing themselves to an extreme world fused with funk, jazz and metal jams. Singing in Taiwanese, the poetic lyrics of Guntzepaula reflect the status quo and dark sides of Taiwanese society challenging the moral standards, social ideology, and all kinds of biases.
