Official press release:

Prosthetic Records welcomes Chicago-based four-piece instrumental group, ZAIUS, to their ever-expanding roster. Formed in 2010, the band explores a lighter, more melodic side of the members’ musical tastes without abandoning the metal tendencies that come natural to them.

Guitarist Dann Dolce comments on the signing:

“We are insanely proud of these eight songs and can’t wait to share our first full length with the world. A proper release is what this album deserves, and Prosthetic Records really has our backs on this. The four of us couldn’t be happier.”

Of Adoration, the band’s debut LP, will be released via Prosthetic Records on October 6, 2017. The opus 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.

Dolce reflects:

“We try not to conform to any specific sub-genre and pull influence from as many places as possible. Our goal is to keep our songs moving and dynamic, heavy yet engaging, not letting parts drag on longer than they have to.”

Of Adoration track listing:

1. “Phaneron”
2. “Echelon”
3. “Reformer”
4. “Sheepdog”
5. “Magnolia”
6. “Seirenes”
7. “Anicca”
8. “Colin”

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.

ZAIUS is:

Jeremy Bellen – Bass
Dann Dolce – Guitar
Mike Imbordino – Drums
Ian McConnell – Guitar
