Planet of Zeus are a heavy rock band from Athens, Greece. They have been around since 2000, playing extensively throughout
their home country, just about anywhere they could, ranging from house parties to stadiums. Their raw, sincere and constantly
evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following, which exceeds Greece's geographical
borders. After 5 consecutive European tours and several high profile festivals (Bloodstock etc), Planet of Zeus were the main
support band at Clutch's 2015 Psychic Warfare European Tour.
Planet of Zeus have released 3 albums. “Eleven the hard way”, was released in April 2008, through Casket Music/ Copro Records
(UK). The album, although a debut, received great reviews from magazines, such as Metal Hammer and Kerrang and even Bruce
Dickinson featured it on his BBC radio
show. The sophomore album “Macho Libre”, released in May 2011, through B-Otherside Records, was the album, that established
the band as a major act in Greece and started creating a European buzz
around Planet of Zeus. Since then, their two official music videos, “Leftovers” and “Vanity suit” have become classics. With
their third album,“Vigilante”(2014, ihaveadrum records),the band upped the ante and created their own distinct blend of riff
heavy, groove laden rock n roll.
At a time in which individualism seems to be the ultimate solution for some, Planet of Zeus come back with their highly anticipated
fourth album, “Loyal to the pack”, an ode to the benefits of teamwork. Being well known for their never ending signature heavy
riffs, gritty vocals and dancing grooves, the band decided to “shuffle their deck of cards” and embark on a new musical direction,
encompassing melody, clean, but heartrending vocals and a newly found sense of dynamics. This mixture seems to establish a
signature sound for Planet of Zeus, a sound that takes the listener on a journey throughout the history of heavy music. From
Lynyrd Skynyrd to Mastodon, the Allman Brothers Band to Queens Of The Stone Age and AC/DC to Clutch.
