Feeling a bit camera shy


So, all of this Black Hole Zion stuff might seem a little confusing at first glance, right? Is it a band? Is it one person doing a bunch of stuff? Is it a group of various collaborators with one constant always there to direct the flow of traffic? Well, the answer is, yes.

Black Hole Zion was formed when Mark began writing a series of songs that all followed a particular narrative. He was alsowriting 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.

Black Hole Zion is not quite a solo project, but more of a collective. Think: Star Trek's Borg instead of the Romulan Praetor. While much of the vision comes from Mark's perspective, anyone involved is free and encouraged to contribute. Mark's main collaborators are Ryan and George. Mark approached Ryan about collaborating on some of the pieces as a guitar player and they ended up writing some songs together in addition to the music Mark had already written. Ryan also wrote a few songs on his own that capture the spirit of Black Hole Zion perfectly. When it came time to discuss drums, George was the clear choice. His ability to push and pull the groove of a song while still maintaining accurate time and feel in an electronic environment are crucial. 

To answer what you are probably on this page looking for information about, Black Hole Zion is ALSO a live band/performer. We are fully ready and able to come and play/DJ the weird electronic music. However, we are also a damn good live band and perform the electronic rock/metal part of the Black Hole Zion catalog. If you are looking for a sci-fi rock/metal band to play at a convention or other special event, then this is the band for you. The live lineup consists of:

Mark-vocals, additional guitar/keys/programming (depending on setlist)
Ryan-guitar and backing vocals
George-drums and percussion
Corey-bass and backing vocals
