Zoroaster was formed in the summer of 2003 by Brent Anderson (bass & vocals), Will Fiore (guitar & vocals), and Rod Fiore (drums), three former colleagues in the defunct group Terminal Doom Explosion who rediscovered their mutual interests in primal, concrete sludge-doom when they began rehearsing and performing on an almost nightly basis, in and around their native Atlanta, GA/ Influenced by heavy metal progenitors Black Sabbath, black metal founders like Venom and Celtic Frost, later-day doom disciples such as Sleep and Electric Wizard, and, naturally, Southern sludge masters like Eyehategod and Acid Bath, Zoroaster drew the attentions of Battle Kommand Records with their 2005 demo, which, after a few tweaks and improvements, was released as their debut eponymous mini-album the following year. Positive press soon led to the group's signing to Southern Lord for the release of their first full-length album, Dog Magic, in 2007, and their second long-player, Voice of Saturn, emerged two years later on their own Terminal Doom label. In 2010, the band continued their fusion of classic doom with psychedelic and shoegaze elements, releasing Matador on E1. ~ Eduardo RivadaviaPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
