Gozu has commented:
“We are extremely excited to be signed to Blacklight Media / Metal Blade Records, started by celebrity Chef Chris Santos and partnered with legendary Metal Blade founder and CEO, Brian Slagel. The 4 members of Gozu couldn’t be happier. This is why we plug in every night.”
Chris Santos commented:
“I caught Gozu at Brooklyn’s Metal Bar Lucky 13 Saloon and they blew me away. By the second song in their set, I began sending Brian real time video of the show. Gozu represents the bands that I look for BLM”
