Although Zeenon never made an official statement that they split-up and the band currently is listed on hold I guess its fair to say that we won’t be hearing much from them in the future. But who knows, the main reason for the hiatus is that they needed more time for their families and those kids are older and probably more independent by now so who knows…
Until the band gives an official statement all options are still open, for myself I wouldn’t mind if Zeenon made another record. Since 1995 the band made six EP’s and a full-length, the first self-titled EP contained three songs and was released in 1995, the second one from 1996 got the name Dhuma and contained four songs, the We Want Your Mind EP contained two songs and was released in 1999, in 2000 there was the Against The World EP with five songs, in 2002 the Inject the Truth EP with three songs and from this EP I managed to find the song Code of Life online, the first piece of music that I could find online from Zeenon. In 2004 their last EP appeared on the market and that one goes by the name Arbor Vitae. All the EP’s were self-financed by the band themselves by the way.
In 2005 their first full-length was released, Blood Vessel Criteria came out via Retribute Records and contained eight songs and it was the last effort that the band released.
Zeenon started in 1995 but the real beginning was in 1994 when Nina and Linn formed a band called Spooky Balloons, a couple of months and some band members later Linda joined the band and Zeenon was born. Unfortunately, Nina deceased of cancer and in 2002 Elin was found as a replacement for Nina.
The band is listed as brutal death metal but over the years they had some diverse songs, listen to the song Code of Life for example, and the music contains also a highly technical aspect and loads of groove.
Zeenon gained a live reputation in Norway as there were three women in the band at a time this was not so common and the brutal voice from Linn surely made most male growlers jealous.
Zeenon is taken from Greek Mythology and the band added an extra E to Zenon.
There is a Facebook page from Zeenon but the last activity was in 2011 when some pictures were posted.
