Experimental Post-Metal Group ZAIUS Post In-Studio Video for "Echelon"
Chicago-based post-instrumental group ZAIUS released their debut LP, Of Adoration, in early October via Prosthetic Records, and the response has been astounding! Metal Injection calls the album, "full of energy and creativity", and MetalSucks dubs the band, "a breath of fresh air". The Prog Space praises the album, calling it "...a fresh approach against the current trends in instrumental prog/post-rock music", and Heavy Blog as Heavy tells readers, "...if you're hankering for that complex yet atmospheric vibe, you need look no further than ZAIUS."
Today, ZAIUS have shared a new in-studio video for their track "Echelon" with fans. Check out the video here, and stay tuned for more individual instrument playthrough videos coming soon.
While online, make sure to watch ZAIUS' entrancing new music video for their dynamic standout track, "Seirenes", here.
Of Adoration was tracked at the start of 2017 with Jeff Edwards before being sent off to be mixed and mastered by Chris Common (Pelican, Mouth of the Architect, Minus the Bear). The record features eight tracks that peaks and valleys its way through over 40 minutes of music. Order HERE!
Of Adoration track listing:
Formed in 2010, ZAIUS explores a lighter, more melodic side of the members' musical tastes without abandoning the metal tendencies that come natural to them. ZAIUS first arrive on the scene withAll Your Friends Are Dead, the band's 2011 debut EP, which showcased a fine mix of dense and morose guitar playing. 2013's Divided By Tides EP came next and pushed things further, adding in soaring melodies. The album was met with glistening reviews, with MetalSucks proclaiming, "the world needs more instru-metal bands like ZAIUS, who steer completely clear of djent while still managing to bring the groove (via Maserati), atmospherics (via Constants, If These Trees Could Talk, etc) and the heavy (via Scale the Summit). Bomb."
Illustrations for the album were created by Marald Van Haasteren (Baroness, Kylesa) whose style is as colorful and alive as these tracks were meant to be.
