Metalcore giants, Zao, have released their highly anticipated album, “The Crimson Corridor” on April 9th. Brutal Planet Magazine did something we’ve never done before- a nearly 3-hour interview! Our guests, vocalist Dan Weyandt, and guitarist/clean vocalist Scott Mellinger met with Brutal Planet writer Joey Reichhoff. They talked about writing the album/artwork first and then discussed each track in detail. Scott shared the musical side of things while Dan shared the inspiration and meaning behind the lyrics.
Just a reminder- this interview is not typical of what Brutal Planet would do, it is basically just three guys kicking back and discussing the album you’ve been waiting for since “The Well-Intentioned Virus.” The Crimson Corridor is hands-down some of Zao’s best work. We would encourage every fan to head over to https://officialzao.bandcamp.com/merch to order the album now. If you would like band merch, go to https://holymountainprinting.com/collections/zao.
