The band was formed in 2005 after a year of building the concept. In the first EP Kebun Binatang (2007), Zoo was still playing fast, mathematic, and noisy music as often seen in Boredoms, Ruins, Melt Banana, or Hella. But in their first full album, Trilogi Peradaban (2009), elements of ethnic music was introduced, and then in their latest release, Prasasti (2012), Zoo’s music has now progressed toward significant direction; ethnic and tribal elements are no longer elements but has becoming an integral part of Zoo as a band and therefore creating a new undefined music. All these contrast crossovers of many different influences are there in order to align the music with theme that they try to put forward.
The theme behind every lyrics are all about modern civilization, human ambition of immortality, deterioration of cultural roots and some theme that encourage optimism.
