Band Feature: Zatokrev

Cruising by AversionOnline, I came across a band in the world of metalgaze. Being a complete sucker for the stuff, and the fact that the bands that have come my way playing it usually execute their craft pretty well, it should come as no surprise that I’m going to give Zatokrev a recommendation.

There was a point in time when there seemed to be a few more of these bands getting signed and putting out releases, but it looks as though things have slowed. It’s kind of a double edged sword to have this genre gain a small portion of popularity, as the more bands there are playing something strange makes it less strange. With things slowing down for metalgaze, that might actually extend the lifespan of the genre, and make the few new bands that come out become much more worthwhile.

The sophomore album by Zatokrev, titled “Bury The Ashes” was released, or looks like it’s about to be released by Firebox.

As a side note, I'm seriously considering starting a news/blog/archive dedicated to the genre, it's bands, and related bands.
