“…they’ve definitely got the mathcore gene for resisting conformity in favor of bravely exploring uncharted territory. Put more succinctly: you really need to check out Lowlands.” – MetalSucks

“atmospheric, completely devastating and very well-recorded instrumental metal. Enter the world of ZEVIOUS.” – Metal Injection

“King Crimson, Sonic Youth, Ruins, late-era Present, and Ahleuchatistas are some good starting points for comparisons. But ZEVIOUS is their own animal, and Lowlands is more than worth checking out for that reason alone.” – Avant Music News

“Dense and dissonant, New York trio ZEVIOUS’ fourth album is discordant jazz fusion for metalheads, but maybe not vice versa. […] Lowlands is the band essentially saying “screw it” and ploughing further into a world of distortion and dissonance than they had previously dared to do.” – Overdrive Music Magazine

“a fascinating journey across a musical landscape so mottled with influences that, if it were to be rendered as a piece of art, it would be a Dali painting. […] Lowlands is one of those rare records that you can listen to a million times and you’ll always hear something new within.” – SonicAbuse

“Those already familiar with ZEVIOUS will know what to expect from “Smear Campaign,” the first jam from the power trio’s Lowlands album. For the uninitiated, ZEVIOUS contains members of Dysrhythmia, Sabbath Assembly, Many Arms, Smother Party and other out-there acts, playing off-kilter instrumental music combining elements of jazz, metal and prog. Their 2013 album, Through the Wall, is a total mindfucker and Lowlands promises to do the same, albeit in a more streamlined way.” – Decibel Magazine

Zevious New York, New York

Since forming in 2007, ZEVIOUS have sought to blur the lines between prog, jazz, and metal. On Lowlands the band explores a hypnotic and more streamlined rhythmic approach while maintaining their abrasive edge with influences ranging from new-wave and 20th century composition to doom and black metal. ... more
