About Planet Of Zeus:

Planet Of Zeus are a heavy rock band from Athens, Greece. They have been around since 2000, playing extensively throughout their home country, just about anywhere they could, ranging from house parties to stadiums. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following, which exceeds Greece’s geographical borders. After 5 consecutive European tours and several high profile festivals, Planet Of Zeus were the main support band at Clutch’s 2015 Psychic Warfare European Tour.

Planet Of Zeus have released 3 albums. »Eleven The Hard Way«, was released in April 2008, through Casket Music / Copro Records (UK). The album, although a debut, received great reviews from magazines, such as Metal Hammer and Kerrang and even Bruce Dickinson featured it on his BBC radio show. The sophomore album »Macho Libre«, released in May 2011, through B-Otherside Records, was the album, that established the band as a major act in Greece and started creating a European buzz around Planet Of Zeus. Since then, their two official music videos, »Leftovers« and »Vanity Suit« have become classics. With their third album, »Vigilante« (2014, Ihaveadrum Records), the band upped the ante and created their own distinct blend of riff heavy, groove laden rock’n’roll.

At a time in which individualism seems to be the ultimate solution for some, Planet Of Zeus come back with their highly anticipated fourth album, »Loyal To The Pack«, an ode to the benefits of teamwork. Being well known for their never ending signature heavy riffs, gritty vocals and dancing grooves, the band decided to “shuffle their deck of cards” and embark on a new musical direction, encompassing melody, clean, but heartrending vocals and a newly found sense of dynamics. This mixture seems to establish a signature sound for Planet Of Zeus, a sound that takes the listener on a journey throughout the history of heavy music. From Lynyrd Skynyrd to Mastodon, the Allman Brothers Band to Queens Of The Stone Age and AC/DC to Clutch.

In 2019, at a time in which irrationalism seems to be king, with far-right politics enjoying mainstream status worldwide, religious fundamentalists, flat-earthers, and anti-vaccinists testing the limits of freedom of speech, Planet Of Zeus return with their highly anticipated fifth studio album, »Faith In Physics« (Heavy Psych Sounds). Lyrically, this album seems to be Planet Of Zeus’s most socio-politically conscious release, dealing with themes such as digitalization, religion, social network pseudo-revolution, addiction and lonerism. Musically, it sounds like the band’s chosen to take the dirtiest path possible in order to create the highly charged atmosphere needed to get its messages through.
