LYRICS

Damaged
Whores and angels
In rose gardens they walk
Holding hands while others gawk
Lips sealed, only eyes talk
My guardian angel
Flew away
To join a clan of long lost souls
A chain of broken down angels

Wings’ve been hidden
Plans’ve been made
To break through heavens
Seeking revenge
They were discussing
This Battle for power
One night at the meeting
When Lucifer spoke:

We are the underground
We’ll stay in the underground
There’s no caged way of life for us…

They are spoiled but we won’t be.
They are corrupted by their greed.
They are as damaged as they can be…
This is not me… 


Freakshow

There comes a time

when I feel empty inside.

No one’s around

when I hit the ground.

But I work my way,

to keep darkness away…

Don’t get me wrong but I like

being alone, you know…


Cause there’s always someone trying

to bring me to my knees

To prove that I am wrong

and make me use the word “please”…

Well,

people go off

when they think they can pull your strings,

Make you look small

and play with your needs…


But I am not the kind to take that…

I am not your whore,

not anymore…


​I am the Owner, I am the Master

Of my body and soul

I don’t wanna take part

in your Freakshow


Some come with a smile and lay low for a while.

Soon they grow teeth and their bite will be deep.

That’s when I feel empty inside…

cause I wasted my time

I lowered my guard and this could tear me apart…


I am the Owner, I am the Master

Of my body and soul

I don’t wanna take part

in your Freakshow


No Cure For Love

You know I like having,

complete control…

But when I first met you,

You stole my soul…

You sucked me dry,

To the last drop of love,

You haunted my dreams,

Till I can’t carry on…


Now…

I feel empty without you…

Now…

Gimme something cause

I am sick…


But


There is no cure for love

And that’s a crime

There is no cure for love

Cause you’re not mine…

There is no cure for love

Don’t you see?

There is no cure for love

For what you’re doing to me…


Is it all in my mind babe?

Are we playing some game?

Are you gonna gimme some,

Ask for some,

And put the blame on me?

I didn’t wanna be the one

That had to lose…

You couldn’t have us both

So you had to choose…


Now…

Will need some time to fix me again

Now…

Will need a new drug to feel the kick


But

There is no cure for love

And that’s a crime

There is no cure for love

Cause you’re not mine…

There is no cure for love

Don’t you see?

There is no cure for love

For what you’re doing to me…


Sinners and Lovers

This one’s for us

We know who we are

I think she’s here at last

At last I am sure she’s here…

I'm shutting now my eyes

And open up my arms…


Rain falls,

I know,

There’s no sound…

it feels like tears from heaven


All this hate,

And all our sins are washed out

So I dance in the rain…

Sinners and lovers

They all dance in the rain


Sinners and lovers

They all die as they dance in the rain


In Dreams We Trust

We might be seagulls at the ocean

Flying around free

We can have what our hearts desire

Or kiss the ones we miss

It’s not real and it won’t last for long

We might cry or smile when it’s gone


But in dreams we trust

​When nothing’s left for us

In dreams we trust

Cause if we try hard

​Dreams come true

To heal

The wounds you have for real

​To dream the unreal

Makes us want to live…


You might be a worker in a steel town

Who dreams of being a king

Or just a lonely person

That needs a tender kiss

It’s not real and won’t last for long

But sometimes it lasts as long as you want


Cause in dreams we trust

When nothing’s left for us

In dreams we trust

Cause if we try hard

Dreams come true

To heal

The wounds you have for real

To dream the unreal

Makes us want to live…

Hypnotised

The night was young

When the snake went on stage...

The venue was packed

And the snake began his mesmerizing tale...


He said

“There’s no one to call,

and nothing to fear…

Listen to my voice,

look into my eyes,

and everybody do as you’re told…”


It’s too late now

You’re hypnotised

It’s too late now

And hate dominated this jungle world…


It made the news

That was the idea…

He was called on TV

And at once the camera loved his face…


He said

“There’s no one to call,

and nothing to fear…

Listen to my voice,

look into my eyes

and everybody do as you’re told…”


It’s too late now

You’re hypnotised

It’s too late now

And hate dominated this jungle world…



Angeline

Johnny drove out in the rain

She was hitchhiking down the road…

She said her name was Angeline

And Johnny told her to hop on


They spent all night on Bourbon Street

She wore his leather jacket

And by the closing of daybreak

She said it’s time for her to go…


Johnny said…


Angeline let me love ya

I can’t fix a broken dream

Angeline let me love ya

You can’t fake reality


He called her house, they said she’s dead.

Car accident - a year ago

But Johnny found his jacket warm

Laying down on her cold grave


He left this note…


​Angeline let me love ya

I can’t fix a broken dream

Angeline let me love ya

You can’t fake reality


Angeline let me love ya

I can’t fix a broken dream

Angeline let me love ya

You can’t fake reality


 

Pinups
Pinups
Ain't got no home 



Intoxication

There is truth in this life

I know that I’ve been taught some truth.

There is lie in this world

I am sure that I’ve been taught the lie.


In any case, I know, to instill fear in my heart

“To speak now or forever hold my peace”

There is truth in this life

But I am sure that I’ve been taught the lie.


​Intoxication


There is right in this life

And I’ve been told I should be right.

There is wrong in this world

How come I’m told I’m always right?


​Is it a lie that I’m right when I do something wrong?

Or is it right that I’m wrong when I do something true?

​They call it Media.

They make a lie come true…


Intoxication


Lies


Using lies to prove they are not wrong.


Lies


The right ones to keep me under control.


And make me feel this hate…

And call it “truth”…

No need to know much…

Just their “truth”…


This goes on for so long

I can’t tell right from wrong.

This goes on for so long

I can’t tell right from wrong.


​With books…


With priests…


and all their politics…


TV…


TV…


This goes on for so long

This goes on for so long

I can’t tell right from wrong

I can’t tell right from wrong



Until The End Of The Line

It’s gonna rain, the sky is dark,

You stare at some kids playin' in the park,

You draw a heart

On your steamy window.


You’ve heard the news,

there’s nothing safe,

This world is changing day by day

this summer became too cold…


Once it was warm,

you were a child,

The world didn’t seem to be so wild

And then, summers turned so cold


Discovered love – destroyed friendships

Failure, tears,

and sorrow

And summers became too cold.


And now you’re falling

You’re carried away by the rain…

The train keeps rolling, 

taking you away

Away and away

Until the end of the line 

REVIEWS

Reviews MMXIII, Versions 2013 [UK] & 2014 [GR]


"New Zero God - MMXIII:  A band which consists of experienced ex-members from Greek cult underground bands such as The Flowers Of Romance and Nexus are back with their second full-length album.  This time with more typical gothic rock based on post-punk tradition, great guitar work, emotionally charged melodies, and mature, yet very dark song structions.  MMXIII is an album to be proud of!" 

- Terra Relicta

Dark Music Awards 2013

​"MMXIII" placing 9th in the Top 10 Albums of 2013


"...I can see a few goths nearly falling over trying to three step to this track. Again you have the element of goth but this one is a lot more of a good rock track. The way New Zero God manage to mingle and explore their sound is fascinating...”

- Alteria Motives - UK


"A great album you should definitely check out if you live on the darker side of rock, and let’s hope the next album comes around quicker than this one did. 8 out of 10” 

- Paul Broome, The Midland Rocks UK


“...Creative and suggestive gothic rock which goes far beyond, flawless executed and made with passion.” 

- Virus G - Spain


“Greek post-punk outfit New Zero God have certainly got a solid pedigree having been formed from the combined ashes of the gothic rock band The Flowers Of Romance, industrial rockers Nexus and darkwave act The Drops; all of which have shared the stage with luminaries such as The Mission and Christian Death in their heyday. New Zero God though is a beast unto itself, distilling the best elements of these groups and giving them a major overhaul...” 

- Intravenous - UK


“...New Zero God definitely live up to their roots providing some great goth tracks but also making the music their own they add elements of punk too. MMXIII is a great album which will appeal to a lot of people whether you like goth, punk or rock. MMXIII really is goth with a distinct lack of anti-depressants and a bit more whoomph to boot.” 

- Wicked Spins Radio - UK | USA


"NEW ZERO GOD «MMXIII»

Παλαιοί γνώριμοι οι New Zero God –και όχι μόνον επειδή ο Μιχάλης Πούγουνας έχει το προσωπικό του κεφάλαιο στην ιστορία του εγχώριου rock ελέω Flowers of Romance, Nexus κ.λπ.–, αφού και αυτοί (οι New Zero God) έχουν την δική τους, πλέον, πορεία στα πράγματα. (Το συγκρότημα υφίσταται από το 2006, έχοντας ηχογραφήσει δύο τουλάχιστον άλμπουμ και άλλα «περίεργα» EP/CD, 45άρια, ψηφιακά long play κ.λπ.). Πριν καιρό (3/10/2010) είχα γράψει λόγια καλά για το CD τους “Fun Is a Four Letter Word” [Puzzlemusik, 2010], ενώ τώρα τους ξανασυναντώ σ’ ένα επόμενο ολοκληρωμένο άλμπουμ που έχει τίτλο “MMXIII” και που κυκλοφόρησε στις αρχές του ’13 (στη Βρετανία και την υπόλοιπη Ευρώπη) από την Secret Sin Records και πριν λίγο καιρό ξανά (στην Ελλάδα αυτή τη φορά) από την B-Other Side με bonus track, καθώς και με νέο mastering, όπως και track list. 


Ρίχνοντας μια ματιά στην line-up των New Zero God του 2010 παρατηρώ πως η σημερινή είναι κατά τα 2/4 αλλαγμένη. Υπάρχουν πάντα οι Μιχάλης Πούγουνας φωνή και Δημήτρης “Sidheog” Στεβής ντραμς, με την θέση του κιθαρίστα Ηλία Ράπτη να κατέχει τώρα ο Αχιλλέας “Lao” Γερομόσχος (μέλος των Flowers of Romance την περίοδο 1985-90) κι εκείνη του μπασίστα Μπάμπη Διακουμέα ο Χάρης Σταύρακας. Αλλαγές τέτοιου τύπου σημαίνουν ασφαλώς και αλλαγές ή έστω διαφοροποιήσεις στον ήχο ενός συγκροτήματος, πράγμα που γενικώς συμβαίνει και στο “MMXIII” – ένα άλμπουμ που εντάσσεται σ’ ένα ευρύτερο rock πλάνο, παραμερίζοντας τις εύκολες-μονοδιάστατες ταμπέλες. Υπάρχουν tracks δηλαδή που ροκάρουν αδιαλείπτως, όπως το “No cure for love”, άλλα που έχουν ένα «ξερό» κάπως 80s beat (“In dreams we trust”, “Hypnotised”), άλλα που λόγω φωνητικών και κάποιων πενιών οδεύουν ακόμη και προς το… μακάβριο μέταλλο (το “Damaged” είναι ένα από τα ωραιότερα τραγούδια του «2013»), άλλα περιστρέφονται γύρω από μια κάπως «νότια» rock μυθολογία (“Angeline”) και άλλα στέκονται όρθια μέσα από τις… ψυχεδελικές παραφθορές τους (“Pinups”).

Ένα είναι σίγουρο. Οι New Zero God έκαναν ένα άλμπουμ που απευθύνεται κυρίως σε ροκάδες. Όλων των συνομοταξιών και όλων των καιρών… και αυτό έχει την σημασία του."
