American hard rock/heavy metal group Zolto has released a new music video called “Taken”. Zolto is founded in 2015 and it consists of 4 members: Pianist/Keyboardist, and key Composer of the band, Ramon Darbidian brings the melodic writing direction of Zolto by using electric synths, grand ambiances, and shredding lead solos that give off pure euphoric vibes. Bassist, and co-writer for the band Michel Chitarians brings a heavy, and percussive rhythm element to the sound by combining the sounds of modern electronic music along with several genres types of metal, and progressive rock elements. In the early stages of the band, Zolto originally had a Lead Guitarist, Ara Tossounian.
Actually, it is my first time to check Zolto‘s music, and I am really impressed with their energy and distinctive catchy sound. The music video of “Taken” is so enthusiastic and powerful as it expresses a wonderful performance of the band by their instruments and harmonious organization. The most thing that attracted me is the performance of the keyboardist and how originated killing sounds that push the rest of the sounds to a higher level.
Another impressive note is the performance of the vocals, the combination of clean and screaming highlights the multi-generic music that wandered between alternative, metalcore, and heavy metal.
