Yeah, they are still a band, and I believe that they have a few original members, they lost a vocalist and I believe a drummer over their career.

they started out and released two albums, then everyone left but the drummer, and the vocalist for zao now is who came in on the "third" album.

many people consider that to be zao's first album because Dan coming in created pretty much a whole different band, just same band name

they're definitely the best metal band in my opinion. every album from that "third" album is incredible. can't wait for the new album

Yeah I would say so.

Another great Christian metal band is Extol, who I like more than Zao.

Extol is great, I love them.

Zao is one of my favorite bands of all time. Christian or not.

i really enjoyed that record. the production was cool, and it showed another side of zao. if you get a chance, watch 'the lesser lights of heaven.' it is a DVD that chronicles their entire history and is a great watch.

oh yeah, i bought that the day it came out. i've watched it quite a few times over the years

the thing is with fear is that steve albini did it and he's known for the grungy, "garage-y" sounding production

if that other guy is wanting a "good" sounding production, he'll get it on the new album

Yeah I haven't listened to a lot of Zao lately, but they're still solid. I may have to get one of their records out soon.
