There are days when I’m truly happy that this internet invention exists. Although I long for the days of yore when a trip to the record store brought me complete happiness, I must admit, the immediacy that the internet provides quickly overshadows those long-lost days. Don’t get me wrong, I still love going to the few record shops that exist, and I still feel a thrill as I finger through albums of the past. But … I also relish that I can sit in my sleeping attire, coffee by my side, and browse through whatever strikes my fancy.
And such was the case today …
Our hometown boys, New Zero God, have been busy … indeed, quite busy … and it appears that they have caught the attention of several countries outside the borders. First it was Brazil, then Germany, Italy, Australia, United States, Canada, and now they’ve made their way all the way to England.
Dominion Magazine, a U.K. based publication, has released a preview of their printed magazine’s highlights. The leading story is brought to you by Cassandra, who not only writes for Dominion and Terrorizer Magazine, but also hosts her own show, Cassandra’s Castle, on Nightbreed Radio.
And naturally, you know where this is bringing us… Dominion’s leading story features an in-depth article on Cassandra’s recent conversation with Mike Pougounas of New Zero God, who has been no stranger in this blog.
As most of you who follow tribe4mian already know, Mike has led quite an active life in the world of music. He’s not only the frontman and vocalist of New Zero God, but he also formed The Flowers Of Romance back in the 80s, Greece’s great (if not THE greatest) gothic rock band, and whose tunes still stand their ground all these years later.
Pougounas is also a founding member of Nexus, Greece’s first industrial rock band, and the founder of Cyberdelia Records. Rather than give you a double-dose of repetitive reading, I suggest you click on the following link to bring you right to Dominion’s article on the band, the man, the industry, and lots of other goodies.
Speaking of live shows, you can catch New Zero God live at An Club in Athens next Thursday (7 April) where they’ll be sharing the stage with Background Noise Suppression of Thessaloniki and Penny Dreadful with Yiannis Kalifatidis from Into the Abyss on vocals and guitar. As I mentioned in a previous post, after having caught New Zero God and Background Noise Suppression at their recent show at EightBall Club in Thessaloniki, I’m truly looking forward to next week’s show with Penny Dreadful joining them on stage.
Here at tribe4mian, we try to keep you up-to-date with the latest news, and sometimes we’re the first to publically announce “new news”. Here’s something that hasn’t been officially announced up till now…
New Zero God will be performing live at next weekend’s three-day festival to support the residents of Keratea.
We’ll bring you much more news on this festival in a later posting devoted exclusively to the event. It promises to be one of the most important and well-attended causes of the year and we hope you’ll include at least one of the days in your own schedule of things to do.
Going back to an earlier mention of Nightbreed Radio, Trevor Bamford, aka “The Darklord“, announced last night that they uploaded some New Zero God tracks to their “Fourth Wave” playlist. If you haven’t had the chance to check out Nightbreed Radio yet, I suggest you do so.
I’ve kept their radio up and running for hours on end since discovering them a couple of days ago and I have yet to be disappointed. From “Cassandra’s Castle” to “Fourth Wave”, and to all the shows on their roster, it’s truly been pleasurable to sit and work with this playing in the background.
