That album intrigued the audience and confirmed the band's eclectic style. During their live performances, they are known for creating a poetic universe with beautiful visuals and graphics, which are made by bass guitarist Yann N'Guema. He uses samples of various photographs, which in combination with the music creates a special audio-visual experience. Other French electro bands use visuals on their live performance, but EZ3kiel are really something special compared to them, their visuals are synchronized with the sound.
In 2003 they released another album 'Barb4Ry' (Jarring Effects/Pias) which showed that the band's mature period came. With it they confirmed their identity as a group which expresses itself in different music genres (electronica, dub, hiphop etc.) and does lots of experimentation. In their music beauty and melancholic mood quickly change to aggression and cruelty. The efficiency of EZ3kiel lies in their ability to surprise the audience.
The profanity of their sound and visuals delivered them to become one of the most exciting and interesting French electro dub bands. Their concert ambience can be seen on their live dvd, ‘Versus Tour 2004’. They took the name EZ3kiel from a biblical person which is often mentioned in Quentin Tarantino's movie called Pulp Fiction (the character played by Samuel Jackson often reads his quotes).
