Zeuhl (Pronunciation: zEU(h)l) means celestial in Kobaïan, the constructed language created by Christian Vander. Originally solely applied to the music of Vander’s band, Magma, the term zeuhl was eventually used to describe the similar music produced by French and Belgian bands, beginning in the mid-1970s, like Art Zoyd or Univers Zéro. Although primarily a French phenomenon, zeuhl has influenced the recent avant-garde Japanese band Ruins and others which pioneered the brutal prog genre.

Zeuhl typically blends progressive rock, jazz-rock, western classical, and vocal elements of African-American spirituals and military call and response. Common aspects include dissonance, marching themes, operatic vocals, throbbing bass, keyboards including piano, Rhodes piano, or organ, and brass instruments. Bandcamp | LFM | Wikipedia
