Zero Theorem is the closest that you can have to Disturbed… without being Disturbed. Of course, that’s meant as a massive compliment. The L.A. based band has an awesome sound and their new work might be their best work if their latest single “Swarm” is any indicator.
Swarm is a thunderous track featuring the stellar vocal from Caesar. Really, that’s where the comparisons to Disturbed come in. Caesar sounds a ton like David Draiman from Disturbed. The vocal from Caesar is flat out insane and if that were the only thing to listen to it would be good, but the rest of Zero Theorem knocks “Swarm” out of the park too. The guitars/bass from Roy Lev Ari, Max Georgiev, and Eloy Palacios are worthy of melting faces and the drums from Jake Hayden resonate in a big way. Producer Kane Churko did an awesome job of producing the band and the song.
If there’s a criticism with “Swarm” it’s that Caesar’s impact isn’t to the forefront as much as it should be. The guitars and big sounds are awesome but when there’s a vocal talent like this it should be utilized more.
That aside, this song rocks. Caesar, Lev Ari, Georgiev, Palacios, Hayden, and Churko put together a song worth noticing and a song that should get the attention of every hard rock aficionado out there.
