Dan Weyandt (ZAO)

A conversation with Dan Weyandt the vocalist of ZAO.

A conversation about how he has been coping with 2020, his 1st brews, the soundtrack of his youth, his 1st shows, how he got into screaming, being independent, shelving their new record, ZAO collab brews, being an artist & his hangover cure.


Throughout this chat Dan was drinking "ILINOHPA" the collaborative brew made by Cinderlands & Hop Butcher For The World. This DIPA clocked in with a 8.2% ABV. He was also sipping on Anchorage Brewing Company's "10 Year". This very special brew was a blend of several vintages of different bourbon barrel-aged Stouts and Barleywines finished on coconut, vanilla beans, cacao nibs and cinnamon. It clocked in with a 15.5% ABV!!!


Matt was drinking Third Moon Brewing's "Tranquility". This Hazy IPA was absolutely spectacular. It was juicy, dank & had a mild boozy finish. It clocked in with a 8.3% ABV.


This is a Heavy Montreal presents Vox&Hops episode! Heavy Montreal is Montreal's premier metal promoter. They host one of North America's best Metal Festivals & present countless amazing events during the rest of the year. I am truly honored & extremely excited to have them involved in the podcast.


This week's Vox&Hops Underrated Gem is Upon Your Grave. I am super stoked to be able to shine some light on them by playing their track "Not Enough" in the intro of this episode.


I am very stoked to announce that I have enlisted the help of my friend & ultimate Vox&Hops' Head Jerry Monk to create monthly playlists where he features the most brutal new releases. I have aptly named Jerry the Metal Architect because he consistently sends me albums that he thinks I would enjoy. It was an easy choice to bring him on as the Curator of these monthly playlists. You can check out Vox&Hops' Brewtal Awakening Playlist on either Spotify or Apple Music.
