Zaria, driven by the desire to create original music, was founded in 2011. Inez, Nika, Miha, Jakob, Rok, and Gašper completed the final line-up in 2012. Although their initial musical style most closely resembled folk metal, they would eventually turn to other genres for inspiration as well.

The band’s earliest original songs emerged within the first year since its formation, and thus, armed with their own music, Zaria played its first concerts in 2012. By then, a fair amount of original material had been written, so a decision was made – in the summer of the same year, they would enter the studio to record their first EP. Produced by DYZ Sonic Temple Studio, it was released under the title of Sij obzorja (Glow of the Horizon) in March 2013. This year was marked by intensive songwriting as well as occasional concerts all over Slovenia, and culminated on New Year’s Eve with their on-stage appearance in the centre of Ljubljana.

2014 proved to be another busy year, for by then enough original music had been written to record their first full-length album. In late February, they entered Studio Rojas, where the next few months were spent recording and polishing the final product. In the summer, they appeared on the Second Stage of MetalDays 2014, where they were warmly received by a large audience. Their debut album, Po poti življenja (Upon the Trail of Life), was released in December.

In the future, they hope to make further on-stage appearances, and, eventually, return to the studio once more.
