ATOMZERO was initially a UK-based music project by Peter Godziszewski. A 3-track demo was recorded in 2001 with the track “Metaverse” included on Elektrauma Vol.6 compilation released in 2002.
Relocated to Canada the project continued with remix work for other bands and further compilation contributions, culminating in Gord Clement joining forces with Peter in 2004 and a new phase of ATOMZERO was born. Drawing the best elements from influences such as Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb among others, the new songwriting partnership brought strong vocals, thoughtfully-crafted lyrics and a more melody-driven brand of electronic music, fusing classic electronic influences of early electro-pop, industrial and EBM into a polished and modern mix.
After some compilation appearances over the years the band released “MisDirection EP” in April 2014 followed closely by the full length album “Symbiosis” to positive reviews from the alternative music press and fans alike.
“Nice twist between fresh EBM ideas and danceable vibes” (Side-Line Magazine), “Canada-based duo Atomzero’s first full-length release ‘Symbiosis’ is an ebm infused synthpop assault with dance floors firmly in its sights. Beat driven and melodic, it ticks all the boxes a modern electro-pop album should” (Intravenous Magazine), “On this debut album ‘Symbiosis’ they bring explosive songs full of melody and nice beats. But also the powerfully delivered lyrics and vocals bring most songs alive” (Peek-A-Boo Magazine)
In September 2014 Atomzero signed a European record deal with Manchester, UK-based independent label AnalogueTrash. After releasing the single “Surface” and the expanded European Special edition of “Symbiosis” with bonus tracks and remixes the band concentrated on delivering energetic shows in Toronto with Mike Kozak on drums and Norm Jolin on guitars.
In early 2015 Gord departed the band and Peter joined forces with Andrew Hunter as the new voice and joint songwriter of Atomzero. With the change of partnership and sensibilities the new sound of the band will be unleashed later this year.
