After releasing their last CD independently, ZERO DOWN is now set and excited to release their new ripper on Minotauro Records in the Winter of 2014.
Once again the band has reunited with Martin Feveyear (QOTSA, Screaming Trees, Duff McKeagan’s Loaded, etc) at Jupiter Studios in Seattle to lay down this beast and packaging will include artwork by the master of metal art, Ed Repka (Megadeth, 3 Inches of Blood, Death, Misfits, etc). Titled “No Limit To The Evil” this new opus features ten new cuts and is our heaviest release to date so scream for me motherfuckers! ZERO DOWN!
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
