BiographyDiscographyGallery
Formed in 2002 by guitarist, main-songwriter, and vocalist Simon Berglund along with axeman Emil Nyström (both were only 15 years old at that time) ZONARIA have outgrown their local underground status with the debut album “Infamy And The Breed” (Pivotal Recordings, 2007) and gained Europe-wide attention due to tours with Impaled Nazarene, Marduk, Pain and Vader. With influences ranging from Hypocrisy over Dimmu Borgir to Arch Enemy, ZONARIA’s misanthropic mix of brutal riffs, melodic harmonies, maniacal drumming, and ominous synth lines was well received within the metal community and the band succeeded to shape their own, unique sound.

With their second album and being confirmed for supporting Vader on their 25th anniversary tour through Northern Europe in October/November 2008, ZONARIA are well prepared to become the new Swedish extreme metal sensation! “The Cancer Empire” was produced by Fredrik Nordström (Dimmu Borgir, In Flames, At The Gates) at Studio Fredman and mastered by Peter In De Betou at Tailor Maid (most of the big names above).
