Zero Theorem Release New Single & Video 'Swarm'




At a time when the world is at its most chaotic, Zero Theorem are releasing “Swarm” as the perfect expression of our collective frustrations. The song encapsulates the feeling of rage and lack of control many are experiencing around the world due to the Covid -19 pandemic. “Swarm” was released 17th July and is available now everywhere. The single is the first from “The Killing II” EP, slated to bow later this year.

In anticipation of the song’s full release, the band has launched their campaign with the animated “Swarm” video - which captures Los Angeles based Zero Theorem’s blend of Hard Rock and Metal with a science fiction aesthetic. Vocalist Caesar explains: "Swarm" highlights the struggle between authenticity and blissful ignorance. The song grimly mocks the overly self-indulgent who choose lives of carefree superficiality. However, the critique isn’t about dwelling on the negative or embracing cynicism but rather facing our challenges with a realistic and constructive attitude. Although written and produced prior to the recent worldwide pandemic, economic crisis, and protests against racial injustice, the song’s lyrics and subtext seem especially poignant at this moment. Our Art Director and Animator Lubomir Atan did a wonderful job of capturing the imagery of the song.”





He continues: "One of the major themes throughout The Killing recordings is that suffering is inherent to life itself. Try what you will, but it’s going to get you one way or another. Denial may work for some, but it’s not a viable solution for us all, especially given the complexity of today’s world. We believe recognition and action are the way forward. That’s how we’ll grow stronger and happier as a species."

The band has been growing steadily since the release of their first EP, 'Ataraxis' in 2018. That EP yielded Top 30 BDS Active Rock singles 'Area' and 'Becoming', which received placements on key Hard Rock & Metal playlists on all major streaming services. Zero Theorem has accumulated more than 7 million audio streams of their music to date. The band toured extensively throughout 2019, playing more than 80 shows, including opening for Nonpoint and Hyro The Hero, as well as a headlining club tour.

The band released the single and video for "You" in the fall of 2019, and The Killing I EP in January of this year in anticipation of 2020 tour dates, including the "Save The World Tour" with Fozzy, Through Fire and Royal Bliss – only to have all tour dates pushed back due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The band hopes to get back out on the road in the fall – conditions permitting.

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
