Zior and didn't find out much, but what I did find out was that for some reason, maybe to out run a deal with the devil? They suspiciously changed there name to Monument, recorded and released a record the same year they released their self titled debut as Zior. Same band, all the same members, two different names, two different records, the same year. They might be the only band in history to do that, I don't know. Imagine the logistical problems of touring after making that move.
Monument is just as horrifying and heavy as Zior, maybe a bit more horrifying and heavy. Perhaps the deal with the devil was to put out two satanic records the same year to really inundate the 1971 youth with the bad news of the bible black? A real power play on the devil's part, but I think it might have contributed to Zior/Monument's musical obscurity.
