Biography

Redefining the shape of new music, Ministry of Zen takes their cues from decades of great hard rock music while infusing modern radio rock influences to produce something undeniably fresh. This dynamic 5pc. Project writes nothing but guitar-driven, melodic songs that gets fans singing along even when they don’t know the words. The Band’s “real rock” sound is enhanced with clever harmonies, and is rife with both vocal and instrumental hooks. Ministry of Zen is a band that cannot be ignored.

Lead by the powerful and range less vocals of Front Man Doug Robb, recognized as being among Canada’s premier vocalists, song lyrics tell real life stories that resonate strongly with rock music lovers. The Rhythm section of Chris Wright (Drums) and Jeff Daigneault (Bass) are so solid and in sync that these “Brothers by Different Mothers” could have been separated at birth. The vocal harmonies of MOZ are contributed by elite guitarists Joel Taggart and Ian Van Oosterhout who trade catchy and creative hooks continuously driving the band to ever greater heights.

Committed to capture their live sound with their recorded product, Ministry of Zen entered Mole Studios in the Fall of 2007 and engaged the visionary mind of Producer/Engineer Rainer Weichman. Some 6 months later, MOZ emerged with the results they had been hoping for, and their debut album, “Unanalyzed” was complete. Said Robb “We went into this whole process wanting to capture our live sound and we are extremely pleased with what we got. So many bands today use fill in musicians, samples, and other gimmicks and then leave fans disappointed when the live music doesn’t come close, and we just aren’t about that”. What you hear and what you see is exactly what you get with Ministry of Zen; inspired music you can really rock out to.

Armed with their new Album, Ministry of Zen is now on a collision course with destiny as they bring their MASSIVE LIVE SHOW to ever further reaching markets. Plans for 2008 include the release of their first single to commercial radio, a summer cross-Canada tour and taking the stage night after night to win real music lovers. If you do nothing else this year, check out Ministry of Zen and become a fan for life.

Lyrics

Anthem

Written By: Doug Robb

Trust peace in someone else's hands
Do you think that you could even stand
I got 5 bucks says that you won't interfere
Somehow evolution enters here

I believe
Got a chance to free you mind
Open you eyes and find
I believe
Got a chance to free your mind
Open your eyes and find

Resist to undermine your friend
All great reigns will come unto an end
I got 5 bucks says that you won't interfere
Somehow you conscience will enter here

I believe
Got a chance to free you mind
Open you eyes and find
I believe
Got a chance to free your mind
Open your eyes and find (it will find a way)

(solo)

I believe
Got a chance to free you mind
Open you eyes and find
I believe
Got a chance to free your mind
Open your eyes and find (it will find a way)

Another Ride

Written By: Doug Robb

Left alone all those things you said
Nothing good could ever come of it
You see, can you see
I don't think you could believe

Take you for another ride
What does it take for you to decide
Of you, and when
And when this shit all began

What if I care
Nothing changes if I care
What if I care
Nothing would change even if I care

Here I am standing tall
You've been gone who cares how long
Nothing more to say
I don't like you anyway

Take you for another ride
What does it take for you to decide
Of you, and when
And when this shit all began

What if I care
Nothing changes if I care
What if I care
Nothing would change even if I care (for you)

solo

What if I care
Nothing changes if I care
What if I care
Nothing would change even if I care (for you)

Lift

Written By: Doug robb

You lift me, and you free me
You inspire me, you inspire me

Lost in a world that’s not my own
Convincing myself I'm not losing ground
I can feel you surrounding me
And it takes me, to where I should be

You lift me, and you free me
To be better than I am
You inspire me, you inspire me
To be better than I am

Somehow you found a way inside
Found that place, where I can't hide
I can feel you surrounding me
And it takes me, to where I should be

You lift me, and you free me
To be better than I am
You inspire me, you inspire me
To be better than I am (oh yes I am)

solo

You lift me, and you free me
To be better than I am
You inspire me, you inspire me
To be better than I am (oh yes I am)
