ZAO

all else failed (2018/STEADFAST)

METALCORE. The original 1996 recording of the debut full-length from ZAO. There exists a small pocket of hardcore kids who will insist that one of ZAO's earliest lineups was their best, despite later incarnations' popularity. "all else failed" is chunky, heavy, and pummeling and derivative of the metalcore style initiated by EARTH CRISIS and maintained at the time of this album's release by STRIFE and other hardcore groups. This record released by Steadfast earned ZAO the attention of Tooth & Nail Records, who signed them to a multi-album deal. Remastered and available for the 1st time on vinyl.
