The Zenith Passage signs with Unique Leader RecordsCalifornia death metallers The Zenith Passage has inked multi-album deal with Unique Leader Records. The band is currently working on material for its full-length debut.
It was in early 2012 that a small recording collaboration between two friends (Justin McKinney and Greg Hampton) began to coalesce into something that would prove to be well more than the sum of its parts. The atmosphere created clearly nods to inspiration drawn from legendary acts such as Deeds Of Flesh, Soreption, Fallujah, Severed Savior and Aeon.
The project's initial offerings generated enough buzz in social media circles alone to convince the duo to redouble their efforts in earnest, and to begin seeking out members to complete their lineup. This proved no small task in a saturated market, but persistent scouting over to following months precipitated the addition of friend and drummer Josh Slater (Aethere) into the mix. The subsequent release of a proper Ep, entitled "Cosmic Dissonance", in January 2013 catapulted The Zenith Passage's recognition to unprecedented heights and not long thereafter, it was announced that Rob Maramonte (ex-Fallujah) would also be stepping in to lend his talents and fill the role of second guitarist.
