    “ZAIUS are a four-piece from Chicago who specialize in anguished, instrumental post-metal in the style of groups like the Ocean and Mouth of the Architect – extended, crushing anthems that speak volumes without uttering a single syllable.” - Revolver Magazine

    The quartet self-released two EP's (2010's ‘All Your Friends Are Dead’ and 2013's ‘Divided By Tides’) before teaming up with Prosthetic Records to release their debut full length album in 2017. On ‘Of Adoration’, ZAIUS offer a glimpse into a musical world turned upside down. Featuring an array of sweeping landscapes, rhythmic thought patterns, and complex concepts ringing out with stunning, crystal clear beauty - this isn’t your average instrumental record. ‘Of Adoration’ is a 40-minute journey traversing genres while defying conventional time signatures. The instrumentation is thoughtful, challenging and without pause.
