|Planet Of Zeus are a heavy rock, southern metal band from Athens, Greece. Were formed in 2000 and since then have extensively toured around Greece, playing in every venue possible, ranging from shitholes to stadiums. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following base, which exceeds Greece's geographical boarders and hasled them to sharing the stage with acts like Hermano and Brant Bjork, Monster Magnet, Karma To Burn, Eyehategod and Church Of Misery. Their highly successful 2011 Greek tour, which included all Greek major cities, their participation in the Stoned from the Underground Festival in Germany and their cult music videos led to this year's sold out Planet Of Zeus' Athenian concert. A concert which took place in front of an 800 people audience.
Planet Of Zeus have released two albums. Eleven The Hard Way, in April 2008 through Casket Music/Copro Records (UK) and Macho Libre, in May 2011, through B-Otherside Records. Both albums have sold-out and are waiting to be rereleased. Planet Of Zeus' songs have been also featured in several underground compilations such as the Spinalonga Vol. 1 & Spinalonga Vol. 2. Both albums have received attention and reviews beyond expectation.
Much of Macho Libre's success is due to the fact that it contains 11 songs, which draw inspiration from the current social and economic crisis in Greece and express frustration, anger and thirst for revenge.
This year Planet Of Zeus are planning their spring European tour, their summer European festival appearances and are currently writing songs for their third album.
