Zeistencroix is a post-industrial band from Los Angeles, California. The band was founded by Orlando Draven (vocals) and is accompanied by Santi (Drums) and AKO (Guitars).
Their powerful sound is a blend of metal, industrial, progressive, alternative and goth making their songs fluctuate from heavy music to ethereal cyberpunk vibes guided by Orlando’s throat singing, heavy screaming and harmonious melodies.
In 2017 they released their EP titled “Gemini” under the production of Tim Palmer and Bill Metoyer giving a yin yang feel to the album and experimenting with the blend of two different styles in one record cutting the singles “Saturated” and “I Need You Tonight” with respective videos and press articles on Revolver Magazine and The Huffington Post.
Their first full album,”Gen Z”, was presented in the middle of 2019 followed by a European tour in the fall of that year. Their US Tour was scheduled for Spring 2020, but it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, after the lockdown was finished, the band toured the US with “Undead States Of America 2021 Tour”.
In 2022 they did a spring tour in the US while recording their next release.
Currently the band just finished their new EP named “Cruxi-Fiction” recorded at Stygian Sound (at the legendary Sound City Studios) and ES Audio Studios Burbank. Produced by Tim Palmer and Alex Crescioni, the promo single titled “Ice Queen” was recently released and has met with fan’s approval.
