Review: Zeitgeist Zero – 'Ghosts of Victory'

| Album

It’s been ages since I last reviewed an international band. One of our biggest supporters at Underground Press and one of my favourite bands. ZEITGEIST ZERO has never once disappointed me. ZEITGEIST ZERO is a female-fronted band, surviving more than 10 years.

Described as “Alt-wave rock and eerie macabre pop, fusing sultry female vocals with dark, twisted electronics and a determined attitude.” [sic]

An electro-goth band with an attitude is how I would describe them. Theresa Dead, the enigmatic lead singer provides strong vocals and an energetic presence both on stage and in the studio.

'Ghost of Victory' was entirely funded via an IndieGoGo campaign which raised over 4k from their die-hard fans.

Starting with ‘Domestic Blitz’, this album leads you on a dystopian flavoured journey, with female vocals complimenting each song. Each song that follows leads you on a journey of catastrophic, melancholic lust for more.

 

‘Dust and Bone’ has a touch of burlesque added to the mix and straight after that, throws you into the dark side just to show you their true diversity.

This album has all the traits of powerful guitar riffs and strong bass lines and an electronic feel  that was made so popular by bands such as Sisters of Mercy, Clan of Xymox and The Chameleons.

This is certainly an album worth getting your hands on. So don't wait too long.

About Zeitgeist Zero

Industrial goth fused with powerful vocals and gritty electronics. Zeitgeist Zero is an independent Leeds based band that has toured throughout the UK and Europe. Their sound is a combination of heavy guitars and industrial electronics. Their unique music and dark style have received favourable press coverage, including BBC Radio 6, Sonic Seducer and Devolution. The band has built up a loyal following leading to festival appearances at Infest, Wave Gotik Treffen and Whitby Goth Weekend. Their take on goth tends towards the heavier side and combines with a Deborah Harry/Shirley Manson like vocal. However, the vocal’s pop melodic sensibilities contrast the lyric’s darker themes.
