'Like Glenn Danzig run amok with a MIDI interface, The Guitar Zeros cross gale-force riffage and nerdy electronics know-how to create a dark stew bubbling with art-punk smarts, new wave circuits, and glam-metal heft. Instead of traditioinal stringed instruments, the ironically dubbed Zeros weild Guitar Hero controllers (yes, from the hugely popular PlayStation 2 game) to trigger synthesized sounds created and mapped to the controller's buttons with multimedia software Max/MSP. Before you go writing these guys off as kitsch, consider the sophistication that such a stunt entails. Then forget about their oddball (nay, ingenious) presentation and listen to the music. Solid.' - Nathan Baker, SF BAY GUARDIAN.
