Biography

Zatokrev was founded by Silvio (drums), Marco (bass/samples) and Fredy (guitar/vocals) in Basel-Switzerland in April 2002 to deliver a heavy load of dragging metal.

In 2003 they recorded a demo and started playing gigs. Through strong live performances, they built up a reputation as an intense live band

After they recorded the selftitled debut album, Zatokrev had a release on the English label "Codebreaker" in September 2004 and got only positive reviews in magazines around whole Europe. Later the album came out in North America and Canada on "Earache" where it also got excellent critics.

In this period of time Zatokrev played festivals, short tours and single shows around France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Slovenia and Switzerland where they shared the stage with Dillinger Escape Plan, Chimaira, Esoteric, Kill The Thrill, Cataract and many others. The biggest festivals that Zatokrev played were the Metalcamp in Slovenia, Rock Oz' Arenes in Switzerland and the Metal Dayz also in Switzerland.

The new long-player called "Bury The Ashes" is out now in Switzerland on "Czar Of Crickets Productions", and will also come out worldwide over "Firebox Records" in February/March 2007. Zatokrev got reinforcement from second guitar-player Stench from France to make their shows even more intense now. So keep an Eye on the tour section.
