Zodiark is a heavy, in-yer-face, melodic and progressive metal project, hailing from Reading - deep in the darkest depths of Southern England.
Forming as a band in early 2008, the trio of old school pals Simon Robins, Christian Sturgess and Luke Highet entered Simon's home studio in the summer to record some demos before writing and recording an album's worth of brutal, yet melodic heavy metal with progressive overtones over the next year.
After some well-received instrumental mixes of these songs in late 2009/early 2010, the guys didn't want to stop writing new material, and decided to write and record another album's worth of material as well!
Kurt Jones and Matt Kaye joined as vocalist and drummer respectively in 2010 to complete the line up, and in March 2010, we announced the double debut album to be entitled "Thoughtforms", on which the vocals are currently being tracked. The aimed release is for late summer.
Hope you like the music, and see you around!!
