Amazing re-entry in the technological scene that of the Italian duo act Zero AD, able to delight all fans of the best electro school. Having left the original dark wave and gothic matrices some time ago, the project was able to elaborate from the 2000’s onwards a style increasingly based on electronically perfect sonorities, up to the finalization of the Zero AD’s imprint which has as its fundamental principles the extraordinariness of more evolved futurepop / EBM melodism plus a concrete capturing ability.
The new album “Consistency” represents a really important milestone in the band’s path, because all the distinctive best elements that distinguish the final orientations are concentrated in it. A tracklist made up of fourteen fantastic songs launches the Zero AD at stellar speed and with determination in the electro panorama’s spheres, within which the duo will obtain the favorable opinions of even the most demanding listeners. Each track of the full length is made with extreme care and owns a particular sonic magic, thanks to the wonderful compositional synergy between the two protagonists, who always manage to create an highly fascinating instrumentality and compelling vocal atmospheres, consisting of 80’s reminiscences often combined with VNV Nation, Apoptygma Berzek, Covenant recalls. Danceable midtempo drumming, skilful orchestrations of synths, linear sequencers trajectories and an enchanting vocalism, guarantee an extremely pleasant and advanced musicality, which know exactly how and where to be irresistible.
“Consistency” is a top priority release for any electro follower and an audio jewel to be collected with pride. Simply spectacular!
