Atlanta's very own, Zoroaster have been booked for Roadburn 2011. Nice one we say.

From Roadburn.com:

Roadburn Festival is very pleased to report that Zoroaster will be playing the Thursday Roadburn date, Thursday, April 14th, 2011.

Atlanta trio Zoroaster have never been content with sticking to one  sound or formula and albums like Dog Magic and Voice of Saturn  showcase a band operating within the realms of doom metal, sludge and psychedelic rock but showing a serious tendency to meander. Both  records show hints of a band that can be both monolithic  and  atmospheric but also swing like vintage Sabbath at the very same time. When all three factors converge, Zoroaster is capable of delivering the coolest, heavy-duty, stoner odysseys this side of OM, Sleep and  Electric Wizard. However, Zoroaster‘s vision comes to full fruition on their latest album, Matador, still very much in the doom-mold,  but  now with more and shorter songs.

Sometimes a band can linger in the  shadows of their peers and be overlooked, and it’s easy to forget that some bands need a little more time to develop than others. In case of  Zoroaster, their considerable growth over the years has placed them in the pantheon of psychedelic doom, up on Mount Collosus, alongside their brethren.
