Manchester's Zero:State have succeeding in recording a professional slice of rock music in debut single One Minute Silence. That being said, the track lacks the punch of a top rock song. It is close, but not there yet.
There is an interesting riff (that is perhaps slightly overused) but a disappointing payoff by the time the chorus rolls around. It's a shame because a song lacking a memorable chorus is generally a song that is unmemorable as a whole. This is unfortunate as the vocalist has a distinctive voice (not always synonymous with good, but in this case it is) and the rest of the song shows that the band knows how write a good rock intro, verse, middle 8 and outro. They just need to get that hook in there somehow.
