Unlike the several heavy metal bands that share the same name, the Canadian indie group Zeus forgoes doom and gloom to make music with three-part harmonies, Americana sensibilities, and sunny power pop hooks. After parting ways with the 6ixty8ights, childhood friends (and ten-year veterans of the Toronto music scene) Mike O'Brien and Carlin Nicholson reunited to play shows as Paso Mino, the backing band of Broken Social Scene member Jason Collett. The two started recording music together for fun in their downtime, and realizing that their songs had potential, they recruited drummer Rob Drake and multi-instrumentalist Neil Quin to round out the group. In the summer of 2009, Zeus released the Sounds Like Zeus EP, which gained attention with its cover of the Genesis hit "That's All." Arts & Crafts released a full-length debut, Say Us, the following winter, in February of 2010. Two years later, Zeus returned with Busting Visions, which earned enthusiastic reviews and a welcome response from fans; a year after its initial release, Busting Visions was reissued in a special edition, accompanied by a bonus seven-song EP with the group performing covers of songs by Michael Jackson, Big Star, Genesis, and R. Kelly, among others. Following extensive touring in support Busting Visions, Zeus returned to their Ill Eagle Recording Studio and began work on their next album; Classic Zeus, which despite the title was a collection of 11 brand-new songs, was released by Arts & Crafts in September 2014. ~ Jason Lymangrover
