Erzulie (pronounced Ah-zih-lee) is a Jazz Metal Band inspired by Haitian Vodou, Panamanian Folklore and Chicago Grit. Their heavy blend of Thrash Metal, Latin Jazz, Indie Rock, and Blues generates a reaw melodic music that entrances audiences. The have been compared to Kittie, Jinjer, and Paramore.

"This tape is a response to the beginning of the end of the world. It has very little to do with drugs, shooting and killing my own people, or degrading women. 80% of the album is eschatological, 10% Love, 5% Paranoia and 5% Bravado. It leans much closer towards gospel than hip hop. One must fight shaytan with his own tools. Praise The God."
