Human Zoo are a quite unusual Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band. The saxophone player in their line-up gives them some sort of extravagance. Rousing melodies and grabbing refrains prove that there are capable musicians and songwriters at work that could already gain experiences and success with other bands in the past.
In the year 2004 singer Thomas Seeburger, guitarist Ingolf Engler and keyboarder Zarko Mestrovic got together with only one goal – ‘pure rock’. In autumn 2005 Markus Ratheiser (Glenmore) on the bass, Boris Matakovic (Subway) on the saxophone and Kevin Klimesch on the drums completed the band.
The highly celebrated debut feature `Precious Time` (2006) astonished the press as well as the public in many places. HUMAN ZOO was elected as “Newcomer of the year 2006” in German magazine Rock It!.
Just 16 months after the release of the debut album `Precious Time` the second album `Over The Horizon` was released on the 28th of September of 2007. Having in mind the slogan “never change a winning team”, Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69) also produced the second album.
The new album `Eyes Of The Stranger` was produced at MS and Maniac Studios by Chris Lausmann and marks a further milestone in the career for HUMAN ZOO. The songwriting here combines classical rock elements with modern effects, but without leaving behind the typical HUMAN ZOO style.
With numerous convincing shows at different gigs with the Scorpions, Gotthard, BAP, Axxis, Y&T, Krokus, Pink Cream 69, U.D.O and Bonfire HUMAN ZOO emphasized their position as an outstanding live act.
