JUPITER ZEUS’ ‘Eyes on the Prize’ EP Out Now and Streaming / Official Video Released
Perth’s (Australia) JUPITER ZEUS have returned to the world stage in all their riff-immersed, haunting metallic glory with new EP Eyes on the Prize. The official video for the title track is available below
Arriving three years since the release of 2014 full-length On Earth, the new EP captures in succinct, yet sonically enveloping, form what their countrymen have known since the beginning: JUPITER ZEUS is the real Heavy Rock deal. Get in and get hooked; simple as that.
Tucked away in Perth, Western Australia, JUPITER ZEUS are the very definition of a band who seem to have come from nowhere… but their arrival – laden with walls of guitar, hypnotic rhythms and almost psychedelic vocals – is far from quiet.
Debuting with the stunning Green Mosquito EP, it’s quite apparent that JUPITER ZEUS aren’t exactly first timers. Their previous incarnation, Nebula, boasted a similarly cosmic slant to the heavier side of rock, and the band were pioneering in breaking ground in South East Asia, earning solid fan-bases in Indonesia and Malaysia. With a similarly global scope, but the advantage of experience at their disposal, JUPITER ZEUS are looking past the horizon of the Indian Ocean to a big world of endless possibilities.
At its heart, the band’s music is about songs… epic, soaring and teaming with hooks. The decorations they put on these songs – tastes of the last 30 years of rock music – identify and define the band on a more specific, potent level. Atoms of worlds colliding, exploding into new compounds and creating new life. A self-evolving universe of sound. From the stage or simply blasting in your car; the sound of JUPITER ZEUS is as monolithic and grand as their namesakes.
