Play 90 second soundbite of 'Global Disaster' @ 'CD quality'
How the hell do just three guys make such a 'kin' big 'sound'? Severe Zero are like some sort of hyper-charged, string-driven thing from hell. There's the trademark, rip-snortin', almost incessant guitar work running on a parallel course with the stunningly cool kerrangin' bass and metronomically solid drums; just three component parts maybe but when it all comes together the power unleashed into each and every track is nothing short of electrifying. It's feels like you're being transported through some sort of limitless void in musical space and then being dumped unceremoniously and landing, flat-out and worn-out, in a heap just waiting for the next available transport to lift you off again and re-run the experience - and so it goes on until all thirteen monstrous tracks have been addressed and sampled! It's awesome and its exhilarating and if you're gonna listen to 'Dead Air', prepare for an onslaught that'll melt ear-wax and shake yer precious dangly bits. Severe Zero rock hard, rock mean and rock solid; their adrenalin felled punkish attitude is at times scary but always motivating.
'Dead Air' by Severe Zero is everything I'd expect it to be; a raunchy ride of signature styled rockin' punk, a steaming pressure vessel fit to blow, a schizoid, frenzied trip to rockin' hell and back , an enormous wall of attitudinal rock with more than a modicum of commercial sensibility. Listening to 'Dead Air' by Severe Zero is like sitting into the eye of a tornado and knowing that something's gotta give but not knowing what or when - the expectation is high and time passes slowly but when it happens, the effect is mind-numbing!
