Welcome to the Marshmallow Bunnies home page.

The Marshmallow Bunnies is a music project led by Don Zaros. For the last 30 years I have been using this moniker as an outlet for musical expression. I am highly influenced by various styles of music and throughout the years I have tried to inject some of these styles into the project. The music is often progressive/experimental in nature with dark and personal lyrical themes. My other project, Somber Catalyst, is less structural in form and more atmospheric in nature. Both these projects can be heard via: Spotify, Bandcamp, and Apple Music. I also have been writing and performing with the doom metal band Evoken for the past 16 years.

Most recently I joined the ranks of the long standing black/death metal act Dimentianon. Their music can be found at the sites listed above as well. The second album I recorded with them is completed and will be released in the near future.  Also, during the past decade or so I have had the pleasure to perform on albums with many different amazing bands such as: Poema Arcanvs, Quercus, Bastard Sapling, Mesmur, Ennui, Echo and Funeris. I am also excited to announce that I have completed an album with and joined the ranks of a creative force in black/doom metal which shall hopefully be unleashed this winter. Stay tuned for more details regarding this most recent venture and as always thank you for your support!

2023 Release

A new Somber Catalyst release “Within the Blue” will emerge in January 2023 with exclusive material dedicated to my daughter Ona. I wanted the music to stand by itself so I am not issuing it as the 9th volume of the series. Hopefully those of you who have lost loved ones can relate and take comfort in this cathartic little release. You can watch a live performance of the track “Elegaic” on the music and video page.

Within the Blue is available on Spotify and all other streaming platforms. The cd version is being manufactured in an extremely limited edition of 4 copies. Please email me if you’re interested or check the bandcamp page. When they arrive I will post their availability there. Thanks for your support!
