The name of the band Zoster came up after Mario recovered from herpes zoster that he was diagnosed by a great fan of the band, a certain doctor Miko. Herpes zoster is a virus living in a human body and in the case of low immune system it results in a skin rash spreading gradually usually over shoulders and waist. Whereas, Zoster came as a result of a low immune system of the society and as a need to say and do something. The idea to play reggae emerged completely by chance; the singer left the band and Marko became a lead singer.
Zoster believes that reggae is the appropriate music for this turbulent area in which just a dosage of aggressiveness is too much even when it comes to music. Thus band wants to convey the message of tolerance, peace, progress and affirmation and also a bit of education here and there. And love of course The first time Zoster entered the studio was in 2003 in order to record a single "Majko Jamajko". After going through several crisis (the hardest one was to find people who think alike and who are good musicians at the same time), Goran, Mario and Dragan have decided to record a demo album.
They did it in February 2004, never suspecting to become the Number 1 on the local radio stations. In the summer of that year, Marko Jakovljević and Atila Aksoj joined the band bringing it back to life. Their first gig in West Herzegovina Fest brought them the first victory. The same names make the band Zoster today.
