A Peek into Zao's Corridor

2021-03-04 by checked zapruder CONTRIBUTOR | 32 Comments
Metalcore legends Zao have offered a new single ahead of the release of their newest album. Titled "Croatan," the song concerns the subject matter of the Roanoke colony, which has long been entrenched in American mythology for the strange circumstances surrounding it. This track is the first to be debuted from the collective's upcoming record, The Crimson Corridor. It will be the 11th release in the band's extensive career.

Listen to "Croatan" on YouTube:



The Crimson Corridor is scheduled to be released on April 9th, 2021, with preorders beginning March 5th.

There was a promo image of a figure draped in red amongst a green hedge. Wish that was the cover instead

Oh hell yeah! Song slaps hard. Kinda reminds me a bit of Thou. Heh, even their names sound similar.

Song is.... not the greatest. Not sure why they've underwent such a large stylistic change since AWIV.

That sounds fucking awesome and eerie. This artwork is pretty bland. Song slays also.

Sadly the new song stinks of ass like the first single. Might be the most basic song they've ever written and I don't know how the hell they're recording Dan's vocals but they sound horrific. They just need to call it quits now.

And he was whisked away from this world. Never to be heard from again.
