Zion

Originating in Sioux Falls South
Dakota in 1981 and eventually becoming known nationally as well
as internationally when the band signed with the east coast label
IMAGE RECORDS in 1988. What most people don't know is the fact
that after the song "Is It A Crime" from the Thunder From The
Mountain album was licensed to Myrrh Records (Word) to be used
on their "Twelve New Faces" album from which the song ended up
dominating christian radio airplay charts, Myrrh began courting
Zion, Image Records and David Zaffiro to become Myrrh's first and
only metal band and have David as producer. Image and Myrrh
could not come to terms however and Myrrh went on to sign Holy
Soldier and have David Zaffiro produce them instead. The rest is
history. Had Image and Myrrh come to an agreement, Holy Soldier
probably wouldn't have been signed to Myrrh. It pleases the band to
know that they were actually picked first even though a deal could
not be made. Zion disbanded in 1992 after enjoying a very
successful +11 years of ministry and releasing several ep's and
demo's and finally the cd "Thunder From The Mountain" which had
five top ten hit singles! 2004 found the boys in the band reuniting
in Portland Oregon in August on the 15th year anniversary of the
recording sessions of "Thunder". The members are always working
on new material of various styles and a new CD is now out of a
collection of live cuts and rare demo's, and previously unreleased
on cd tunes! Titled "Thrillseeker" be sure to be on the lookout for
it! Image Records rises from the ashes this year to re-release
Thunder From The Mountain which will also be remixed &
remastered!!
