So I hear the new Zaxas is finally available !  For me though, I'm gonna wait a while as right now it is ONLY available in digital format.
Anyone gonna support them and get the new one ?  Anyone like / dislike Zaxas ?

I know for sure I eventually will add this to my collection as I LOVED their early works.

I might just get the download as I don't have a copy of the first album on CD, either.

I have never heard of them. Playing some of the songs now, sounds like a demo. Not bad at all how long have they been around?

They did one self titled album back in 1995.  This would be their 2nd album in 20 years.

With that time span, you'd almost think they were a doom metal band Very Happy

It actually sounds pretty good.  I'll have to see about getting this.

I totally LOVE their first album, self titled from 1995. I own an original of that, but on mp3 only I have their 2 demos:  1989's "Red Tape" and 1992's "White Room Life".  They offered free downloads (which I also have) from their new album clear back in 2011 - guess it took them 4 years to finally finish.  That's ok, I assume the longer it takes, the better the album will be... we'll see.  Thumbs Up

I have the S/T blue album and love it too.  Some of the songs don't stick with me, but three or four are total top notch.  I'll have a listen to their new stuff...

There's an LP from '91 by ZAXAS -only had 4 songs on it, but it has apparently become such a rare and sought after album, that people are getting $1,400 to 1,700 for this album !!!  
I SO wish I had a time machine.


Check out this fully autographed one:

Wow, this bands sounds vet gaaf.
I hope there will be a CD available soon.
Listening to Zaxas songs right now.

Maybe it's only me, but the voice of the vocalist sounds so familair.
Am I nuts when I say this voice reminds to to the vocalist of Final Axe.
If you think I'm nuts I'll move to the lunatic asylum. geek

There's some resemblance to Ronnie James Dio in Dale's vox.

I could see the comparison to both Ronnie James and the guy from Final Axe.

I'd like to get the files from Zaxas and then tinker around with remastering them.

That'd be cool to hear them remastered.  I dig them already, but to hear them polished up a bit would be much nicer Thumbs Up

I have listened to about half of the songs, and find that the new Zaxas has a bit more of a straight up hard rock feel in places as opposed to the classic US power metal of the debut.  I am waiting for a CD release for making a purchase.

I may just get the downloads since I don't own a copy of the original.

Sounds pretty good, don't know that I'd buy it (I'm pretty selective about what I get these days), but it sounds well written and produced.

It sounds recorded and mixed well, but the mastering sounds weak.  It reminds me in quality of the new one by The Brave.
