Review - Severe Zero - Dead Air

Severe Zero - Dead Air

View The Review

9 out of 10

First of all - let's have a quick think about that name guys. Severe Zero? Surely, zero is absolute and therefore cannot be severe or anything else. perhaps I have too much time on my hands, but hey, I am on holiday after all. Sounding musically not dissimilar to the mighty Queens of the Stone Age, I have a lot of time for Severe Zero, despite the name. Dead Air features a no end of quirky radio fodder that really showcase the lively nature of the band who also remind me a little of early Feeder. Top track on the album is clearly "The Power It Gives" which unleashes a rifftastic assault the ears that I am happy to repeat time and time again. In fact, the more I listen to the whole album the more I think it is simply great, and despite the fact my mate reckons they are not that good looking, they sure as hell know how to play.

More Severe Zero please.
