"Merciful Zero" (Self-released; 2023)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Good music is hard to come by and with the advent of the internet and modern recording technology, anyone can release anything. A lot of the time, it's total crap. However, when it's good, it's truly a thing of beauty. I get most, if not all, of my new music from Instagram (the only social medial I can stomach). Sometimes, it's not what I'm looking for but, at other times, it's truly golden.
I found Merciful Zero and their self-titled recording and it was like finding a diamond ring on the sidewalk. I didn't know anything about this band, but when I listened to the music, I knew right away this shit is for real.
Everything about his band is top notch: the songwriting, the musical expression, the production value and the total charisma of all four members. The overall package is something truly special.
Merciful Zero's self-titled album is a solid rock'n'roll presentation that is well worth the time and effort. I wholly recommend this recording and I can only imagine what they are like live.
Check them out online at mercifulzero.com for some very interesting facts about this band.
A classic. This record will kick your ass.A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
