Kiss your loved ones goodbye, turn around one last time and burn down the bridges to your old life. No one can join you on this way. No one but this very special band from Norway who deliver the finest soundtrack to your very own apocalypse ever since they started playing in 1999. More than once, the music for your dying world, the symphony of your self-destruction came from ZEROMANCER. Now, they are finally back. And sound more intense, more stricken and determined than they did in a long time. First a double strike, then the big hush: After âSinners Internationalâ and âThe Death Of Romanceâ were released with barely a year between these two masterpieces, Norway's Electro Rock connoisseurs vanished from view. Except for their unforgettable live appearances, the ZEROMANCER camp fell silent, a whole three years had to pass until a new album was finally born. âBye-Bye Borderlineâ is its name â' and sounds like a perfect embodiment of the title: Melancholic, bipolar, in one moment brimful with positive energy, in another falling into a bottomless depth. Sure, pleasure and pain share the same bed. Yet, nobody knew until now they were really that close: With the trained eye for pain and sorrow that made hymns like âMy Little Tragedyâ to milestones of melancholy in recent years, ZEROMANCER advance with new determination, armed to the teeth with the biggest of emotions. Love, hate, desperation or sacrifice are not only empty words for ZEROMANCER, but razor-sharp songs for the next breakdown. Electro Rock mysticism in the purest sense of the word â' sensual, highly erotic and altogether much too dangerous. Songs like âAuf Wiedersehen Boyâ, the big closing monument âTortured Artistâ or the biting title track prove just how much anger and bitterness piled up in the last three years. They drag a raw Industrial Rock edge back into the ZEROMANCER sound that finally stands for all things dark, infamous and forbidden again. But ZEROMANCER are more than that: The slow-motion serenade of self-destruction called âManoeuvresâ would even stir emotions in a rotten heart. Ambivalent, layered, passionate and abysmal is the guise of âBye-Bye Borderlineâ â' beginning with the title itself. Do ZEROMANCER sing about healing or disease' About life or death' âAsh Wednesdayâ certainly is on death's side, although hope seeps through some of the wonderful melodies like the sun through thick clouds. Dance, cry, hush or hope â' no matter what it is: ZEROMANCER have just the right music for it. More intimate, more intense Electro Rock has yet to be invented. RIYL: HIM,NIN or Marilyn Manson.
