ZERO NINE

COUNTRY: Finland

STYLE: Hard Rock
Photobucket“Zero Nine” is a hard rock band hailing from a small cold town Kuusamo located in the eastern part of Lapland, formed in 1978 and used to be the best known heavy rock combo at that time. The band remained in obscurity until 1980 when the band’s debut single, “Down the Line” won the television program Town Hall plate.

Published in January 1982 debut LP Visions, scenes and dreams got good reviews. The band soon was sent to England to make a new album Deep Puprle self-vocalist Ian Gillan in the production. The project resulted in the Blank Verse album, which is busy making the pace because of the very high expectations, answer. Over the 1980s, the band released four albums and a good level and steadily increased in popularity. Co-operation was a British Virgin record company. International success was quite close to the mid-1980s.

In 1985 the band signed to Virgin Records for their fourth album “White Lines”.  A UK release would be licensed through the Heavy Metal label. Follow up “Intrigue”, on the Megafon imprint, sold strongly and is regarded by many fans as the band’s creative peak. The song “Intrigue” advertised as one of the most expensive videos made in Finland that period. The 1987 single ‘Shadow On The Wall’, a MIKE OLDFIELD cover version, would be shared as a split promotional single with BOYCOTT. Although ZERO NINE was of major status, international appreciation eluded them and they called it a day, retiring to Oulu where fans could catch the band jamming in their own bar.

Tough gig stroke burned the end of the musicians in the early 1990s. Zero Nine landed on hiatus for a long time. The crew settled down mainly in Oulu. Only in 1996 the band made the album Freakshow. Levy brought another list of success, and again left the band to gigs – now, however, more judiciously than the warmest years of.
