Atomzero - Surface
Electropop, EBM With origins in the UK, Peter Godziszewski released a 3 track demo in 2001 under the Atomzero alias, garnering enough attention to have their track Metaverse placed on the 2002 compilation Elektrauma Vol.6. After relocating to Canada, he worked on remixes for other bands as well as contributing to more compilations. In 2004, Gord Clement joined forces with Peter, and a new phase of Atomzero was born.

Fast forward ten years, and the duo has signed a European label deal with AnalogueTrash to get out a special edition of their album Symbiosis in December. And, to get their fanbase familiarized with the project, a free single has been released from the album, titled Surface, and an exclusive b-side track comes along with it, Halo.

Surface provides a very nice and soothing electropop track, the lead vocals from Gord kicking ass, while the backing vocals from Peter just give it that extra oomph. Though a bit repetitive, though it tries to stray from that path here and there, it still manages to deliver a swell five minute track.

The b-side track, Halo threw in more random electronic sounds and differed from the previous song with a rougher beat. Nothing all too powerful to bend your ears, but enough to keep your attention and show off the various structures Atomzero can bring out.

And, these two songs might not be the most powerful tracks you'll ever hear, they serve their purpose just right. And that is to give out a little teaser as to what you'll be hearing next from this duo. I'll be waiting to hear what the European edition of Symbiosis will hold.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
