Henk : Seattle-based Zero Down releases with 'Larger Than Death' their fifth long player. In 2002 they started and since then they have shared the stage with bands like Mötley Crüe, Accept and Hammerfall to name a few. It has not bring the band huge successes yet, but they keep trying. This is also a fine record with songs ranging from metal ('High Priestess', 'Mean Machine', 'Preacher Killer') to punk ('Lightening Rod', 'Western Movies') and traditional hardrock ('Racoon City'). If you have a broad taste of music and are often fond of loud guitars, this one is probably for you. If thinking in boxes this may not be the right release for you. Maybe that's why the success also is not there yet. It is just a little too much variation but therefore not bad at all.
