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 tsumami.
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 (Soctland)

New Zero God Athens, Greece

Lineup: MIKE POUGOUNAS [Vocals, Keyboards], HARRIS STAVRAKAS [Bass], MIKE "Jabbar" TZAVARAS [Drums], AKIS NIKOLAIDIS [Guitars]. ... more

Track Name: Hell Bet on Me to Lose
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 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

Track Name: Under the Radar
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

Track Name: Shadow of Wealth (Dark En Ciel mix)
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…
