ZATOKREV was founded in april 2002 in Basel. Although the first album (tracked in their own rehearsal room) was only intended for demo-purposes, the band immediately got offered various deals, and finally released the record in 2004/2005 on Codebreaker, Earache and Division Records. The following Bury The Ashes got released through Firebox Records/Finland in 2007, while the third The Bat, The Wheel And The Long Road To Nowhere finally got a world wide release in 2012 on the UK based cult-label Candlelight Records.
