Zatokrev Album To See U.S. Release

Zatokrev's "The Bat The Wheel And The Long Road To Nowhere" will be released through the Candlelight USA Cult Series imprint this coming January 8th, 2013. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"The Bat The Wheel And The Long Road To Nowhere is the third full-length from Swiss death/doom conjurors ZATOKREV. Their self-dubbed 'sludge-apocalypse' takes you on an transcendental musical journey that clocks in over an hour in length and features lyrics sung in English, Czech, and Slovak. Metal Review says the album, 'oozes confidence. This is a band that can reach the upper echelons,' while The New Review notes: 'ZATOKREV skillfully play on emotion to deliver their mournful message. It’s a seriously heavy, seriously depressing doom-fest.'"

The album's track listing is:

1. Goddamn Lights
2. 9
3. Rodeo With Snakes
4. Medium
5. The Wheel
6. Feel The Fire pt.1
7. Feel The Fire pt.2
8. The Bat
9. Angels Of Cross More...

Debello Set To Release Zatokrev Album

Debello Recordings is set to release the Zatokrev's sophomore album, "Bury The Ashes," which was originally released in 2006 by the Swiss label Get A Life! Records. The release is not firm, but late summer / early fall is being targeted.

The label comments:

"Once in a while you come across a band that speaks to you on some sublimely inexplicable level. For me, Zatokrev is that band. Something about their sound takes me back to the early to mid-nineties when extreme music was sincerely passionate and image an afterthought.

"Hailing from Basel, Switzerland, Zatokrev fuse heavy, floor-crushing grooves (ala Cult of Luna, Callisto, etc. but more coarse) with raspy dual-vocal stylings (think Scott Kelly & Steve Von Till) creating an ominous blend of good ol' fashioned skull-fracturing, down-tuned hardcore and metal."

In the meantime, you can check out some of the band's material on their MySpace page.
