Quotes[edit]

  • "Zao were quite literally one of the first few heavy bands to truly break out of the Christian underground scene and gain the attention and admiration of secular audiences... From their humbly loose hardcore beginnings to their overpowering metal meets death grind days, all the way to their progressive almost Neurosis like moments, the group have never been afraid to push themselves and 'Legendary' isn't afraid to show it... A fitting tribute to one of the underground's greats." — ThePRP.com
