ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ZERO DOWN: Irreverent Revivalist Revelry


Fully formed in ’04, ZERO DOWN wildly and unapologetically embrace the amalgam legacy of British Heavy Metal and American Hard Rock, to wit - guitar harmonics fueled, sensational front man driven fury and frolicing ala Judas Priest and Van Halen, respectively. Brought with unique flourish and personality, and alongside reverential nods to members of the extended metal family, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy, ZERO DOWN is a superbly blended homage to rock, finely wrought, hyper enthusiastically delivered, easily accessible in time and PacNw geography.


Metal Misfit, Pirate, Card Dealer, Tortured Genius and The Lone Wolf, the characters that comprise ZERO DOWN are as individually entertaining as one could imagine. Lenny-the-Face, Ronnie-the-Eye, Hawk-the-Mountain, Fred-the-Philosopher, and Tyler, Lone Wolf are conceivably the greatest metal meatball ensemble cast presenting rock and roll today. But of course, the ZERO DOWN whole is easily greater than the sum of the parts. Which, FYI, is what makes a great band, in case you didn’t know.


Not afraid of the “Revivalist” tag, nay, embracing it, ZERO DOWN’s debut offering, ‘05’s “Old Time Revival” put them on the map for pure hearted revivalist metal delivered fervently in the spirit of tent revivals. Zealous testifying to the almighty rock, this year’s highly anticipated follow up, “Good Times at the Gates of Hell” has arrived, extending the musical themes and musicality, while presenting a more distilled purity of form. Seemingly, the apprentices have grown to equal the masters. Featuring another colorful cast member, Martin “Sweet Wizard” Feveyear stars in both recording occasions as the producer, producing a solid set of names to drop (having worked with QOTSA, Presidents of the U.S. of A., Gruntruck, Screaming Trees), as well as his impressively deft handling of ZERO DOWN’S power and prowess. As if there weren’t enough clown cooks in the ZERO DOWN kitchen, enter iconic illustrator Ed Repka (see: Megadeth and 3 Inches of Blood CD cover art), and his stunning capture of the ZERO DOWN Snake Handler mascot. “Good Times at the Gates of Hell” is indeed the complete package. That is, if you like rock.


“Zero Down is a band I've seen evolve over the past years from just another garage rock band into a full-fledged metal assault. Think '80s AC/DC meets Motorhead metal punked up a bit, throw in Flying V's, fog machines, guitar solos and a group of guys that don't take themselves too seriously, and you've got a rock'n'roll powerhouse” Dan 10 Things

"Well crafted songs built on big hooks and crashing guitars put this Seattle, Wa outfit on the forefront of a new generation of loud bands." The Cutting-Edge.Net

" there is a new band on the block, intent on getting the metal message to the masses, and that band is Zero Down!" Metal-Rules.Com

"A new fresh sound containing Punk roots, Hard Rock and Old-School Metal!" PunkUnited.Com

“Snake-handling rockers ala vintage THIN LIZZY precision to visceral velocity, hell bound brutality and pile driving passion! Highly Recommended!”
CLASSIC ROCK Magazine


Appearing regularly at only the grimiest night clubs and independent record stores in the greater PacNw region, ZERO DOWN’s rock & roll testimony is maniacally catchy and readily available. Casting any doubts aside, the mission has been stated, mascots have been anointed, colorful cast assembled, foundations laid and snake oil brewed and bottled, the ZERO DOWN crusade has only just begun.

Sir Lord Doom - Hellion Records

Killer Stuff
If you are looking for music that feels like makin` love, you are in the right place with the direct predecessor of ZERO DOWN`s current album “Looking to start a riot”. You get it all here. Steamin`hot, double lead guitar driven heavy metal anthems that will set your heart, soul and especially body ablaze with an explosive performance. This is real metal, just as it was conceived in the mid to late 70s by bands such as AC/DC, RIOT, TRIUMPH, KISS or UFO, powered up with early 80s original metal in the SAXON, ACCEPT and IRON MAIDEN (with Paul Dianno), even TANK and MOTÖRHEAD vein. If you love your metal stuff earthy, direct and powerful with tracks that stick to your mind forever and certainly heat up every party or even a five minute drive in your car to the next supermarket, you are welcome to get a taste of ZERO DOWN. But beware, this gets you addicted directly. Killer stuff!

Martin Popoff

BW&BK Magazine
“Hands, er, down, Seattle's Zero Down are America's best unsigned band, and to be that, you gotta have more than one beer-bongin record of clanging rock God-ness, and well, Zero Down have two, 2005's Old Time Revival and now this Ed Repka-painted ripper!”
Martin Popoff (BWBK Magazine & Hard Radio.com)

Caren Gibson

Metal Hammer Magazine
“Chock full of bombastic blues-rock riffs and cocksure swagger. Imagine how Zeke, Scissorfight and Airbourne might sound if they got drunk and jammed together. It's classic without sounding dated and reverential without sounding copyist.”
Caren Gibson (Metal Hammer Magazine)

Classic Rock Magazine

Splendorous!
“This is music for denim vest wearing holdouts, for beer swillers and true believers, a throbbing, neck-snapping tribute to metal and mirth and good times for all. Splendorous!”
(Classic Rock Magazine)

“This is easily one of the best albums I've heard this year and you can be damn sure it's going to make an appearance on my 2008 best of list!”
Waspman (Metal Rules.com)

Jeff Gilbert

Mansplat Magazine
“If Motorhead, Sweet and Judas Priest brought a Rottweiler together and trained it to fetch beer and kill, this would be that pup. With an attitude that will make these modern shoe-gazing self cutters cry even more than they already do. Zero Down is a waaaaaay better candidate for bringing back rock than those bitches in The Darkness were. Evil is finally fun again!”
Matt/Jeff Gilbert (Mansplat Magazine)

Mike Legg

The Guys Rock!!!!
hearkening back to the days when Rock Was God and these guys have captured the essence of what is good old fashioned Hard Rock!!!!!! Don't miss them in Concert, they are as equally live as in the studio.

Kevin Diers

Sound Magazine
“Rocking like the Monster of Metal mix tape blaring from the headphones of the bully who beat you up in middle school, Zero Down is an everyman's Iron Maiden, writing fist pumping anthems centered around such topics as Firebirds, booze and well, good times.”
Kevin Diers (Sound Magazine)
