Zao (pronounced /'ze?.o?/) is a band from Greensburg, Pennsylvania and one of the founding metalcore groups. Founded in 1993 in Parkersburg, West Virginia, Zao has hosted several musicians and endured numerous roster changes to the point where no original members remain. Singer Daniel Weyandt and guitarists Scott Mellinger & Russ Cogdell are seen by most fans as the "core" of Zao.
The First album with this "core" of Zao "Where Blood & Fire Bring Rest" took the conventions of hardcore and heavy metal and turned them upside down. Thunderous, epic, and full of passion, the album was driven by vocals that exorcised singer Daniel Weyandt's demons as if his life depended on the songs. His words reshaped a personal history wrought with tragedy, suicide and death into beautiful musings that connected with their brutal honesty and naked self-observation.
Guitarists Russ Cogdell and Brett Detar, and original drummer Jesse Smith,
