ZP Theart (born 27 May 1975 in Clanwilliam, South Africa) is a heavy metal vocalist, best known as the former singer of Britishpower metal band DragonForce. His name "ZP", is not an abbreviation. With DragonForce, ZP recorded four studio albums and one "Live" Album. In 2010, the band announced his departure due to "insurmountable differences of musical opinion". He has since stated that he does not regret his decision to leave.
After leaving DragonForce, ZP founded his own band, I Am I, in which he sings lead vocals. The band has so far released one studio album, Event Horizon, which has been released on a USB format and CD.
Theart also sang in Shadow Warriors, a side project by his then DragonForce bandmate Sam Totman during the late 90s. Before Dragonforce Theart was also briefly involved with hard rock band Easy Voodoo, and recorded the vocals for the two track Power Quest demo album.
Theart has been doing work with metal band Tank since 2013, and in 2015, he became an official member. His first album with the band "Valley Of Tears", will be released on June 9, 2015.
Theart was also hired by Riot Games for the voice of Karthus in the songs "Deathfire Grasp" and "Last Whisper" by the metal band Pentakill.
