Zornik is a Belgian rock band. It was formed in 1999 by Koen Buyse (singer and guitarist), Marijn Horemans (drums) and Kristof Vanduren (bass).
The band made it in 1999 to the finals of HUMO's Rock Rally rock contest. There the band was spotted by Parlophone Belgium and MTC Management. This led to the recording of their first EP, Love Affair. It stayed in Belgium's leading alternative charts at Studio Brussel, for more than 10 weeks since March 2001. The second EP, It's so unreal, remained in the alternative charts for more than 20 weeks reaching number 3 as highest position.
Zornik played in 2001 at important summer festivals: Eurorock, Marktrock and Pukkelpop. They gave a business presentation at A2A? and also appeared at Eurosonic. On October 2001 they were awarded the TMF (MTV Belgium) Award for Most Promising Band of the year. Soon after, Marijn left the band and was replaced on drums by Davy.
