Zebulon Pike biography
ZEBULON PIKE is an instrumental progressive metal band formed in late 2002 from Minneapolis, MN. The band consists of Erik Fratzke (guitar), Erik Bolen (drums), Morgan Berkus (guitar) and Tom Berg (bass). They are inspired in equal parts by the heavy sounds of the 70's (MOUNTAIN, PENTAGRAM, CAPTAIN BEYOND, early JUDAS PRIEST), progressive rock (KING CRIMSON, RUSH), and 20th century classical (BELA BARTOK, ARVO PART, and many others).

After appearing at the 2004 "Emissions from the Monolith" festival near Youngstown, OH, ZEBULON PIKE released their self produced debut album "And Blood Was Passion" in June. With four of the album's five tracks clocking in near ten minutes or more it is evident the band focuses on mid tempo heavy complex compositions.

ZEBULON PIKE released their follow-up full-length album, "Zebulon Pike II : The Deafening Twilight" in June of 2006. Even darker and more progressive than its predecessor, the album fuses elements of avant-garde composition, free improvisation, and doom heavy metal. In keeping with the tradition of epic compositions, "Zebulon Pike II : The Deafening Twilight" features two 13+ minute and two 20+ minute tracks.

In 2008, ZEBULON PIKE has recently released their third studio album, "Intranscience" which picks up where ZP II left off. It encompasses a wide array of both new and classic feels, movements, and styles, all within 3 tracks which ebb and flow over a 40+ minute journey.


ZEBULON PIKE are very dynamic blend of post metal/doom and should be a welcome addition to 5IVE, CALDERA, KONGH, BARONESS, and MASTODON fans. They are an intriguing mix of metal using unusual guitar harmonies, time changes, and excellent compositional skills that take their time to unfold. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are very highly recommended.
