FIRST, I want to tell you that you can get Dawn Over Zero’s latest Album, “Unity and Division”, here - http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/dawnoverzero4 - and I would suggest you do it. As soon as you can! We have already played several of the tracks on the show and will be bringing you the rest of the album and a review of the album on the show soon, but I wanted to write this review, because this album deserves all the attention it can get!
Dawn Over Zero (DOZ) is a band that, from the first time I saw and heard them, I knew I would never look at music the same. Their sound is unique and familiar at the same time. This band is what rock music is all about; the song writing, lyrics and performances will all leave you blown away. When the single “Carry Me Home” from this newest album was released I was literally giddy. I had been eagerly awaiting new music from DOZ, since their self titled EP had left me completely rocked and wanting more!
Unity and Division sets a new standard in Rock. From start to finish – it is a 10 track, 38 minute, feast for the rock beast inside you! While the obvious places to start listening might be the previously mentioned single “Carry Me Home” or the AMAZING cover of Johnny Hates Jazz’s ‘Shattered Dreams’ (which is fucking GENIUS, by the way); I would urge you to take in this album from Track 1 to 10, because every track holds something sensational! From the hard rock sounds of “The Obvious”, “Carry Me Home” and “Caricatures” to the smooth, amazing sound of “Sound of Goodbye”, Unity and Division is an album that you can listen to, all the way through, over and over again!
My favorite track from DOZ’s latest effort is “Give and Take”, it is a killer tune with a hard but fun feel to it… if that song doesn’t get your head bobbing then you have no soul! All in all, Unity and Division is as solid an album as I have heard in a long time… not since alternative rock’s glory days in the early 90′s can I remember enjoying an entire album this much. Get the album and then go see these guys live, it’s like a party with all your best friends and one helluva show!
