High energy sci-fi rock from a parallel universe
Price Range: Contact for rates
Gig Length: 30 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
High energy rock show with video accompaniment or costumes, and sometimes both. Each performance is reflective of the venue and environment. However, Black Hole Zion focuses on a theme to make each performance different.
Black Hole Zion is a collaborative born out of the mind of Mark B. Mark began writing a series of songs that all followed a particular narrative. He was also writing some electronic and soundtrack pieces simultaneously that were vastly different, but he still felt belonged in the same universe.
Currently, the music spans the electronic, rock/metal, industrial, and soundtrack genres with a bit of art music and punk rock attitude present throughout.
The live band, based in Morgantown, West Virginia, play high energy industrial rock and metal with a science fiction flair. Space metal about time travel! Accomplished musicians on their own, Mark, Ryan, George, and Corey collided to bring this experience to fan, horror, and gaming conventions as well as events and attractions!
Black Hole Zion are currently booking for the Eastern United States. Their newest album The Great Repression is coming soon.
Mark - Vocals and programming
Ryan - Guitars and backing vocals
George - Drums and triggers
Corey - Bass and backing vocals
Additional Booking Notes
Our show can adapt to fit a variety of venues. Please contact us if you have specific questions. We enjoy unique situations just as much as large venues.
In general, we require a sound system that can accommodate vocals, electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums, and a couple of electronic instruments. The sound system should, at minimum, include pairs of full range speakers and sub woofers, stage monitor speakers. Stage lighting and a video projector with a variety of input possibilities are a plus, but not a requirement.
