Zero Mass

Zero Mass was founded in 2002 by Matt Poland & others. After a year long struggle, according to their Myspace Page , they regained control of their band in 2004 and Zero Mass was formed. An additional band member was added in 2005, but again, the band was found to be a solo act after some trouble. In late 2006 Harrison Leong and Matthew Lucas joined the band by playing drums and bass. And to my delight, their sound is one that puts you in the mood to get on your feet and toss yourself around like a rag doll.

As I listened to their selection of music that they have for us all to enjoy on their Myspace page, I felt a surge of energy and a jolt of excitement. The guitar in Zero Mass' music rides through you like lightening and you toss your head as you listen to the beat of the drums, and as you feel like you're about to explode, you get the bass.

I'm not usually a huge fan of music that has many instrumental riffs in it, but I seemed to enjoy the instrumental bits a lot, but they were a bit short for my liking. I couldn't really nail down who the lead singer sounded like, so I came to the conclusion that he was a mixture between Billy Corgan & Fred Durst... if you can imagine that. I am no music professional by any means, but I know what I like, and I think I could flip on their CD and listen to it in its entirety over and over again.

Although they are currently playing in the San Francisco Bay Area, I'm sure it will not be long before we see these boys on a tour of their own, and hopefully they will roll into Vancouver and let me in on some backstage action! (not in the biblical sense of course. maybe for an interview). I give them a solid AC Slater, and I hope you all check them out, I'm off to buy their CD!
