Zool. stands for alternative postrock music, mixing electronic textures and electric guitars. Power beats, crispy percussion and hectic guitars with diverse influences that go from Battles, over Mogwai, The Ex and Tortoise to Tinariwen.


Zool. is a moniker of Gerry Vergult, who has a long history in Belgian popmusic, starting out in the early eighties with his band Aroma Di Amore, who already mixed guitars with electronic rhythms. Throughout the years Gerry developped his skills in electronic musicmaking. This resulted in three albums so far: Vadem in 2006, Camera in 2009 and Ballroom Blitz in 2014.

Aroma Di Amore


What a pity Zool. waited five years to release a new album. ‘Ballroom Blitz’ is a long player in which Zool’s refined productional skills, his songwriting craftmanship and an enthusiastic DIY spirit meet. (Johan Giglot - Kwadratuur)


I find it difficult to imagine someone not enjoying Zool.

(Christophe Verbiest - Flanders Today)


The use of perfect melodies and harmonic structures makes this album sound hypnotising. The multi-layered opulence of wellsounding details dethrones many ‘intelligent’ electronica albums.

(Johan Giglot - Kwadratuur)


Melodies that slowly seduce with subtle beauty and delicate beats who invite to swing.

(Christophe Verbiest in Humo)


It’s a long time ago since we have been overwhelmed by an album in the style of Arovane and Pole, but Gerry Vergult is a craftsman.

(Toon Staes in Rif Raf)


‘Camera’ is the definitive affirmation of Zool.’s talent.

(Steven Vervaet op Digg.be)


‘Vadem’ is a dark and mysterious piece of work that perfectly fits in the universe of labels as Morr or Warp.

(Dirk Steenhaut in De Morgen)


'Zool makes minimalistic, perfectly tailored listening music. Every effect makes sense and gets the space to prove this. 'Ep One' is a subtle example of intimacy.'

(Koen Van Meel on Kwadratuur)
