Before there was SURVIVE, there was Zombi. The hard-hitting, Pittsburgh-based, cosmic horror-influenced duo of synth wizard/bassist Steve Moore and drummer Anthony Paterra, Zombi’s cinematic, loop-based compositions build and swell into chest-rattling climaxes, making for an enthralling experience. Taking their name from the Italian title of Dawn of the Dead, they have inspired a generation of ’80s soundtrack/synthwave nostalgists. Having toured and released albums for 16 years, Zombi are currently signed to legendary metal imprint Relapse Records; they’ll joined tonight by Author & Punisher and Panabrite.
