Planet of Zeus at Graspop Metal Meeting 2018

Friday, 17 November, 2017

Their name gives away their country of origin. Formed in the Greek capital of Athens in 2000, Planet Zeus delivers heavy stoner rock with qouthern influences. It took them eight years to put out their debut with ‘Eleven the Hard Way’ (2008), followed three years later by the well-received ‘Macho Libre’. The radio-friendly ‘Loyal to the Pack’ dropped in 2016 and it’s their best offering yet. Sometimes bluesy, usually groovy and always enertaining, this album exemplifies why these Greek gods of heavy rock deserve a shot in the US. (#GMM18)
