ZAUM live @LogansPub TONIGHT #yyjmusic @zaumdoom @AsherMedia

ZAUM is a passage toward the dark realizations of the old world; a monolithic doomy mantra based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar, woodwind, string and synth textures. Based in New Brunswick, Canada – observers experience a tranquil resonance whereby the astral and physical planes can co-exist and be understood from a natural perspective.

Their debut album “Oracles” released in June 2014 was nominated for an ECMA Award for Best Loud Recording and reviewed 100+ times – subject to much critical acclaim primarily throughout Europe. In their 1.5 years as an active touring band ZAUM have amassed 100+ shows (mainly international) under their belts including support stints for Voivod, Pentagram, and Cauldron. ZAUM’s second and latest full length musical chapter “Eidolon” was released October 24, 2016 via I HATE worldwide. Continue reading “ZAUM live @LogansPub TONIGHT #yyjmusic @zaumdoom @AsherMedia”

Greater Victoria Harbour Authority and Deanna Young Promotions
presents The Breakwater Barge. Join us Friday August 4th from 5PM to 9:30PM for Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths. Caleb will be performing double duty as he opens the barge with a solo set then plays 2 full sets with The Royal Youths!
