flightoficarus (Metal Trenches)
Take a foundation of Tool, remove vocals. Add a dash of Smashing Pumpkins and Russian Circles and you've got yourself Zayn. Excellent progressive music filled with crunchy groove and wah wah solos. The bass and drums don't slouch either. Full review on MetalTrenches.com: metaltrenches.com/reviews/croatian-groove-279Favorite track: Emperor, Guide Us.

"Definitely one of the most intriguing albums of this year so far. In my opinion this album sounds inspired as it sounds fresh. It is music i can easily relate to. Recommended for sludge fans, progressive metal fans, post metal fans e.t.c" - Tzertzelos (GR)
"I can imagine this music working very well on stage, probably because one of the most potentially annoying elements, the vocals, are just not present. Instead, Zayn treats us to an intense amount of fuzzy riffs, pounding drums and often complicated, almost chaotic and dissonant structures. This is simply an awesome piece of music, somewhere between stoner and post rock with a touch of psychedelica." - Merchants of air (BE)
"Zayn separate those who enjoy metal for its immediacy from those who are willing to sacrifice their time for a slow-burning, but no less satisfying, reward." - The Moshville Times (UK)
"These tunes invoke more than just appreciation for music, and talent, but unearth attitudes that few songs can manifest." - Progarchy (USA)
