ZAUM is a passage toward the dark realizations of ancient civilization; in the form of a monolithic doomy mantra based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven by sitar and synth textures. Based in New Brunswick – their live presence is very true to its recorded form featuring McDonald's both melodic and dark vocal styles met with elements of sectional Mongolian throat singing. Observers experience a calming process of reality 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 reviewed nearly 100 times - subject to much critical acclaim primarily throughout Europe. In their 1.5 years as an active touring band ZAUM have amassed over 125 shows (mainly international) including support stints for Voivod in July 2015 and Pentagram in November 2015.
