3:33 is the second studio album by Zug Izland, released on June 1, 2004.

Music style[edit]

Allmusic reviewer Johnny Loftus describes Zug Izland's music style as incorporating elements of piano ballads, goth, industrial and electronic music, nu metal and horror film scores.[1] According to Loftus, "Zug Izland's sparer style [is] unique in an alt-metal climate of two-guitar lineups and monstrous six-string bass bottom ends."[1]

Reception[edit]

3:33 peaked at #26 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and at #22 on the Top Independent Albums chart.[2] In his review of the album, Allmusic's Johnny Loftus wrote that "like their mentors in ICP, Zug Izland are very earnest in what they do. Problem is, 3:33 sounds like the result of whatever hundred ideas stuck to their practice space wall [...] their sonics aren't strong enough to raise 3:33's alert level past blue."[1]
