New Zero God‘s fourth album is not a release of a bunch of songs that patiently waited to fill it. It is a statement of what this band is capable of musically.

Circus of Tortured Melodies” is a journey through the music that inspired them throughout the years, without sticking on genres or scenes. It is a loosely concept album on the complexity of modern life and it’s effects on everyone of us.

Andi Sex Gang (Sex Gang Children) introduces us to this imaginary circus followed by the funky bass lines of “What’cha Gonna Do?”, a reference to the deadlocks we face on a daily basis. “Hell Bet on me to Lose” is a garage-punk treat with catchy riffs, while “Rock ‘N’ Roll Puppet” enchants with its bluesy harmonica. “Busking” is an introspective Appalachian monologue, “Mother Nature” sounds like an extract from the Stone’s “Their Satanic Majesties Request” and yet the amazement is not over. The album is ending with a schizophrenic (but not confusing) song triad: The haunting “Charlie Boy”, the hard rock riffs on “Evolution” and the power ballad “Carry On”.

“Circus of Tortured Melodies” is a stroll along the sources of all neuroses; unfulfilled dreams, emotional insecurity, politics, domestic manipulation, society standards, over-consumerism, compromise and the environmental disaster. And once you listened to it, you get addicted.
