On Of Adoration, Zaius offer a glimpse into a musical world turned upside down. Featuring an array of sweeping landscapes, rhythmic thought patterns, and complex concepts ringing out with stunning, crystal clear beauty - this isn’t your average instrumental record. Of Adoration is a 40-minute journey traversing genre while defying conventional time signatures. The instrumentation is thoughtful, challenging and without pause. 

Zaius’ Of Adoration is a record that will appeal to fans of Between The Buried and Me, Pelican, and If These Trees Could Talk.

Neoclassical post-rockers We Stood Like Kings saw the light of day in 2011. Half a decade and 120 shows all over Europe later, this 4-piece piano-based band hailing from Brussels has become a reference act in live soundtracks to silent cinema. You get the picture: We Stood Like Kings isn’t a band like any other. Since 2012 and with the utmost dedication, they breathe new life into well-chosen masterworks of the seventh art. 

Three projects have shaped We Stood Like Kings’ story so far. Together, these form a vibrant trilogy portraying two empires already lost – BERLIN 1927, USSR 1926 – and a third one – USA 1982 – that seems to be running headlong towards its own destruction. 

We Stood Like Kings will do anything to challenge the expected and successfully mix modern instrumental rock music with the treasures of yesterday’s cinema. Every release is another opportunity for We Stood Like Kings to design new ways of blending their musical universe – now refined and textural, then epic and intense – with images of breathtaking beauty. 

New perspectives unfold as universes meet. 

Signed to the small high-standard German label Kapitän Platte – known for their releases of Ef, Immanu El, The Hirsch Effekt –, We Stood Like Kings already recorded three full-length albums both on vinyl and CD.

Lovers of instrumental rock and silent cinema, beware!
