Fort Wayne, Indiana (USA) is not a city known for its power metal. Since 2005, however, Zephaniah has taken it upon themselves to change that. Disinterested in the repetitive sound of the death metal and hardcore bands in the area, Zephaniah focused on introducing a new style of music to the Midwest scene, drawing inspiration from bands such as Manowar, Symphony X, and a variety of European power metal acts. A fairly young band (members aged 19-24), Zephaniah is making a name in the region and creating a lasting impression among fans.
With the release of their latest album, aptly titled ‘Stories from the Book of Metal’, Zephaniah has claimed a stake in the hearts of their fans with stories of pirates, battle, and the power of metal. Combining elements of power, progressive, and neo-classical metal, Zephaniah brings forth a unique sound, filled with tightly-woven guitar harmonies and solos, speed-metal drumming, and strong vocal melodies.
Zephaniah’s undeniable skill and fan loyalty is garnering attention from the press both locally and in the online metal community. With each highly energetic performance, these five young men continue to gain admiration from their fans and respect from fellow bands. A highly self-motivated group, Zephaniah is driven by their music and has no intention of slowing down.
