HELL BET ON ME TO LOSE Hell Bet on me to lose And now I have to choose It’s you or me, my Babe Well, we all learn the hard way You’re wrong – when I am right You say Black – When I Say White I’ve had all this before So now Baby, I choose to go Cause Hell Bet on Me to Lose More work with less to gain I love living, but I hate the pain My job is not good for me Let's call it quits, I’ve had enough of this… Hit the brake, step on the gas Police are after me, I gotta be fast I will get busted for driving drunk Life is Bittersweet and I am out of luck But Hell Bet on Me to Lose “That’s all that I did Judge” And he shouted “Guilty as charged” and sentenced me for life To have you as my wife You’re wrong – when I am right You say Black – When I Say White I’ve had all this before But there is a guard outside my door New Zero God ["Under the Influence of Captain Pan Ikatac" - ©2017] Lyrics by: Mike Pougounas Music by: Mike Pougounas

UNDER THE RADAR Make Your Own Rules Be a Square Peg Question everything they put in your Head Do not Submit Their message is: Money is God and you’re God’s Little Bitch You Should Have Known By Now… There Are ways to Resist I Fly Under The Radar But I aim straight to the Heart of the Beast Some Sell Dope Others Trade Guns Respected Businessmen Family Guys They Are Tax Dodgers With Special Rules Expensive Lawyers Large Swimming Pools Who Doesn’t Know By Now? Who Doesn’t know? So, I Fly Under The Radar But I aim straight to the Heart of the Beast New Zero God ["Under the Influence of Captain Pan Ikatac" - ©2017] Lyrics by: Mike Pougounas Music by: Mike Pougounas

SHADOW OF WEALTH Baby, baby I am sorry The war is over, no one won Out of our trenches and into their limos Everywhere the news is the same… Baby, baby we didn’t make it I can’t find my pen under the mud I’d like to write you all the details Of a war not meant to be won… I hear the medic’s steps are closing I’d like to call him but I can’t Remember me when flowers blossom And keep me close to your heart… In the shadow of so much wealth there is this suffering… In the shadow of so much wealth there is this hate… New Zero God ["Under the Influence of Captain Pan Ikatac" - ©2017] Lyrics by: Mike Pougounas Music by: Mike Pougounas

about

This is dark rock’n’roll...

"Really amazing, like every NZG work. Always respecting the character of each song, letting it go to extremes if it's necessary, to get the most genuine sound. A band that transcends styles because NZG is a style in itself." El Gurú - Radio DJ, Musician, Author (Argentina)

"Hell Bet On Me To Lose – a rollicking rocker storms your eardrums – very hard not to want to get the air guitar out and strike your best Jonny Thunders pose. Just a great pre-punk sound akin to The Motors and New York Dolls without sounding in the least bit dated. Top production with spattering of samples over a glorious guitar driven track with ferocious vocals from Mike Pougounas, formerly of Greek legends The Flowers of Romance.
Under The Radar is more of a straight ahead punk rock steamroller with a terracing friendly chorus, and more of the brilliantly subtle twists and turns that punctuates the band’s unique sound. Shadow of Wealth mix by (the totally brilliant) Dark En Ceil is simply stunning. Heavy (Thomas Leer like) industrial synth is supplemented by a wonderous ethereal dream pop synths that rise and fall to that industrial beat like still sea threatening a tsunami.
The original version of Shadow of Wealth is still a fantastic piece of work, this time with sound effects displaying an inventiveness that is both inspired and inspiring – forget rocking out to this one, just prepare to be amazed at the superb playing, singing, production and depth of talent on view." - John Innes – New Hellfire Club, Glasgow (Scotland)

"Greek dark rock combo New Zero God have been roaming in the gothic underground since 2006. Their music breathes the same gloomy air as bands like Killing Joke, The Ramones, Misfits, Virgin Prunes and Fields Of The Nephilim. At least, so do the first two songs, 'Hell Bet on Me to Lose' and my favorite here, 'Under the Radar'. The awesome 'Shadow of Wealth (Dark En Ciel mix)' then drags you to the gothic dancefloor. The last song, 'Shadow of Wealth' is a weird avant garde goth rock anthem, the most experimental one on this EP. In all, this is clearly a must have for nostalgic goth rockers." www.merchantsofair.com
