ZEAL & ARDOR frontman Manuel Gagneux speaks to Primordial Radio presenter Pete Bailey as part of the Up-Vote Top 100 where Zeal & Ardor came in at No. 04 with their single Götterdämmerung.


Swiss firebrand alchemists Zeal & Ardor announced their forthcoming, self-titled new album, set for release February 11th, 2022 via MVKA.

Now, they follow that up by unleashing a ferocious new track, ‘Götterdämmerung’. Hissing and seeping justifiable rage from every pore – yet not an unrelenting musical battering – the 14-track self-titled album was recorded by Marc Obrist and Manuel Gagneux at Hutch Sounds and mixed & mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio. All songs were written and performed (except drums) by the softly spoken, multi-lingual Gagneux.

Frontman Manuel Gagneux comments:

“‘Götterdämmerung’ is our most bare bones song yet. No gimmicks, no frills, no distractions, just rage. Most of it is in German commanding your attention and heralding the dawn of a new point of view. This is Götterdämmerung.”
