Zarathustra biography
A German one-off project ZARATHUSTRA were formed as a schoolband at a quiet town Biedenkopf in early 1980s by Tom LAUNHARDT (guitars) and Matthias KAMM (keyboards), both of whom had been influenced by not only lots of rock pioneers like Deep Purple, Kansas, Toto, Saga, but classical authorities like Bach or Beethoven. Their debut album "Also Spielt ..." recorded and released in 1982 could be appreciated by some enthusiastic fans, especially in Japan. Although Tom passed away sadly, "Also Spielt ..." was remastered digitally and re-released upon June 10, 2018, the second anniversary of Tom's death.

Review by dion

2 stars Be aware that this is a total different band than the one from the '70s, with different members and style of music. This one it's more like in the vein of the1980 pop rock mainstream. The members on this 1980 Zarathustra avatar band consists of: Vocals- Florian Mair, Bass - Thomas F. Weigel, Guitar / Synth. - Thomas Caunhardt, Keys - Mathias Kumm, Drums - Andreas Kupfer and Michael Dilt. Weird enough, the graphic cover of this album, by similarities with the plain black pen drawing of the 1972 Zarathustra album, would make you think again that this may be the same group reinvented. Don't get confused, it's not. I would not consider this album / band as progressive at all.
Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
