Zaibatsu is an artist with a kaleidoscopic outlook on his music, a
truly experimental performer that refuses to get stuck in a box, not
only musically and conceptually, but
also aesthetically, as testified by the parade of monikers he adopted
throughout his varied career. Few artists on the music scene are willing
to take such chances with their art.
His work even defies
personal intention, as Kramar approaches his performance with a feel
aching to automatic writing, bypassing rationality and exploring the
hidden layers of consciousness on a deeper level.
Kramar set out to deliver a blend of progressive, electronics, glitch,
ambient and much more, as portrayed on his debut album "The Dark
Enlightenment", which reads like an unpredictable flow of music, better
enjoyed when listening to the album from start to bottom.

Is a project that is coming from the vicinity of of Sisak,Croatia formed
in 2004.First musical expression appeared as a simple desire to create
something different in music! Turning thoughts from everyday life, own
feelings and attitudes led to the first material that is in some way
call for enlightenment of human society, a call that says: "STOP THE
TESTING", which is based on Narayan's attitude,also in music and video
expression! In his expression Narayan is moving mostly from dark ambient
atmosphere, to screaming noise associated with industrial sense. As the
base of the musical performance is video that shows a very realistic
world of today, his stupidity, emotions and distractions. After the
first album, "The Faces of Vivisection", followed more inspired by the
world and the psyche of today, the call to self-destruct! The physic
editions were on the compilation of Croatian underground musicians, "A
Silent Tide", remix of the Mexican experimental musician "Ordo Lacrima
