Zebulon biography
ZEBULON is a very rare German Symphonic band from the early 80's, sadly there's very little information about them, and no matter how much we try, it's impossible to make a complete bio, so lets try to point some information.

The band formed by Ollie Ernst in the keyboards, the bassist Michael Krenke, Tomas Krenz in charge of the guitars and the drummer Micky Schmidt released a self titled album in 1980 and since then their fate is unknown.

As any Symphonic band of those days, their sound is more or less transitional towards Neo Prog, what can be noticed specially in the choice of the keyboards that shout 1980's. Listening the album could find some atmospheric GENESIS touches with a spacey influence of PINK FLOYS in some sections.

I simply can't understand why they are so obscure, because despite they are not in the level of the icons of the early 70's, the solid music they produced is much better than the one by many bands of the late 70's and early 80's.

If you can find the album, bet it, it's a nice collectors item.

Zebulon Symphonic Prog

Review by toroddfuglesteg

3 stars Das Boot aside..........

Zebulon is a German band who only released one album and then sunk without a trace.

The music on this self titled album is symphonic prog with a lot of jazz, lounge, german adult movies soundtracks, neo-bebop, muzak and Ekornes stressless chairs influences. The music floats on the top of the water without really getting wet or absorbing any moisture from the warm ocean below. The instrumentation is mainly based on guitars and keyboards. The music is lounge like with an occasion bursts into fusion territory inbetween. And there is no vocals here.

Which makes this album a bit of a hen's tooth really. A beak and a tongue, but nothing really more substantial than that. But this album still have some good music. But I am as enthusiastic about this album as I am about my recent brain surgeon studies. Useful fare, but nothing really exciting.

3 stars

Thanks to ivan_melgar_m for the artist addition.
