Zoroaster completes new album

Tuesday, May 04, 2010 3:10 PM PT


Official press release:

Celebrated Atlanta, GA "psych metal" band Zoroaster has completed work on its sophomore album. Entitled Matador, the record is set for a July 13, 2010 North American release date via E1 Music.

With Matador, Zoroaster dares to defy genre-classification and proves that the band's formidable reputation precedes it for a reason. Produced and engineered by Sanford Parker at Glow in the Dark Studios and The Living Room Recording in Atlanta, GA and mastered by Collin Jordan at The Boiler Room in Chicago, IL, Matador is a magnetic tour-de-force, blending vivid rhythms and radiance with the band's classic use of dynamics and power. Creative, distinct, graceful and strong, Matador features the traits of a benchmark release. From the cosmic march of album opener "D.N.R." through to the leviathan-like closing title track, it is immediately evident that Zoroaster has joined friends – and fellow Atlanta natives – Mastodon and new label mates High on Fire as a unit determined to push modern heavy music into new and uncharted realms.

Matador's dynamite cover art has been unveiled and is available for viewing at this location. The record's face and album art was designed by artist Brian Mercer.

The final track listing for Zoroaster's Matador is as follows:

1. "D.N.R."
2. "Ancient Ones"
3. "Odyssey"
4. "Trident"
5. "Firewater"
6. "Old World"
7. "Black Hole"
8. "Odyssey II"
9. "Matador"
