Melancholic Zombie - Discography

Melancholic Zombie's music can be summed up as something like melancholic pop-rock with weird electronic instruments and lyrics that could be straight outta tumblr. On the other hand it doesn't really fit in to any category or a genre - it's always changing to be weirder and weirder. Originally known as Juho Saari or JuhoSaariMusic, first demos of Melancholic Zombie were recorded so early as in 2007, but it would took few years before first public releases. First single 'Grrooveboogie' was released in 2012, and debut album 'Beginning' would follow in 2013. It included some early instrumental and electronic tracks. In 2014 the follow-up 'Fall' (or 'Fall & Rainy Days') was released, taking music to more pop and rock-oriented direction. Some would even say that 'Fall' sounded like Trent Reznor's early records. Third album, 'Thousand Times' was released secretly in 2017, and focused on guitar-driven, simple rock. Fourth album 'others' was released in 2020 and moved back to instrumental and electronic music. Along with 4 albums Melancholic Zombie has released numerous EPs and singles.
