Formed in 2002, Zero Down consists of five veteran musicians from the Seattle metal/punk rock scene that cast iron seventies arena rock with classic NWOBHM guitar riffs to bring the old-school metal traditions to the present! Over the past decade and a half, Zero Down has released four scorching slabs of their metal rock (Old Time Revival, Good Times At The Gates of Hell, Looking To Start A Riot, and No Limit To The Evil) and shared the stage with a variety of national acts including UFO, Mötley Crüe, Diamond Head, Y&T, Raven, Accept, The Accüsed, UDO, Michael Schenker Group, Prong, Hammerfall and Paul Dianno.
Zero Down is now set in the (Northern) summer of 2018 to release their second full-length for Minotauro Records titled Larger Than Death on gatefold vinyl with download card. Once again, the band reunited with Martin Feveyear (Queens of the Stone Age, Screaming Trees, Duff McKeagan’s Loaded, etc) at Earwig Studios and Feveyear Master Mix in Seattle to lay down a new ten song opus chock full of vintage early eighties classic heavy metal anthems. Again, their Snake Charmer mascot will be immortalised in artwork by the master of metal art, Ed Repka (Megadeth, 3 Inches of Blood, Death, Misfits, etc).
