Zonaria  


Sweden continues to pump out extreme metal bands (extreme meaning some fusion of black or death metal), and Zonaria is just such a band. They were formed in 2002 by then-15-year-olds Simon Berglund and Emil Nyström and once went by the odd name of Seal Precious, and also formerly played a more power metal style before going to their present sound. Zonaria is one of those bands that don't directly resemble any other one band, or even one genre in particular, but who combines several common extreme metal components to forge an instantly familiar style. Best described as melodic, semi-symphonic black metal, with a few death elements, slightly downtuned guitars and even the occasional viking interlude, the songs race by at pretty much the same tempo, rendering them rather samey at times. Give them time, they're still pretty young, and already adept musicians, they could use a branching out of their style a bit.
