Dimension Zero
Silent Night Fever
April 2002
Released: 2002, Regain Records
Rating: 5.0/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

This band wants to sound like the band “In Flames” but with more attitude, more brutality and faster.“Dimension Zero” has succeeded in doing.This is very good if you like brutal Metal.



During 2001 they started rehearsing and songwriting. During the summer they went into the studio, Phlat Planet-studio, together with Anders Friden (In Flames) behind the mixertable. The recordings took only sixteen days.The result was nine songs of really raw metal.The production is really brilliant!



Demension Zero consists of:

Jesper Strömblad /In Flames/ guitar, bass

Jocke Göthberg /ex Marduk/ vox

Glenn Ljungström /ex In Flames/ guitar

Hans Nilsson /ex Crystal Age/ drums



Silent night fever kicks off with the titletrack and it goes really, really fast. Jocke sounds more angry than Anders Friden the singer in In Flames.

“The murder-Inn”, “Through the Virgin Sky” and “Not Even Dead” go really fast but you can feel some influences from In Flames. “Your Darkest Hour” a calm guitar intro before everyone starts to play and the tempo is fast. “They are Waiting to Take Us” angry, fast, brutal. “Until You Die” and “End” heavy but a tiny bit calmer.“Slow silence” lasts for only two minutes, calm intro, talksong and a beautiful guitar- play throughout the song, cool drums. This is the most quiet song on the record.



This is good, marvellous, but a minus is that all tracks come one after the other without pause and it all sounds like one song. All the guys in the band impress me especially Jocke on vox. He sounds superangry throughout the whole record. Hans keeps a steady hand on the drums. He also impresses a lot. Jesper on guitar impresses also.



If you like brutal metal this is something for you. To really understand and fully apreciate this record you have to listen and listen again many times because otherwise you can’t hear the nuances in the music.



If you like In Flames this is for you. It is a side project of Jesper Strömblad who is a guitarist in In Flames so that’s why the sound reminds me of In Flames.

Dimension Zero
Silent Night Fever
April 2002
Released: 2002, Regain
Rating: 2.0/5
Reviewer: Cid

Can you say BIG disappointment?

I’ve been waiting for this CD since 1997’s EP PENETRATIONS FROM THE LOST WORLD and I must say I wish they hadn’t put out this one.



Dimension Zero have opted to bring us a watered down, solo-less version of what I consider great music. I mean, how can you honestly redo “Through the Virgin Sky” and remove the guitar solo? It’s just plain stupid! The song was brilliant in its original version on the EP, but it sounds more like a poor attempt at filling room in the CD now. The drums are so loud that they drown guitar work all over the place! I guess that’s what you get for letting Anders Friden mix your stuff…



I am fairly sure that everyone who has been expecting this for so long has been greatly disappointed. I noticed how bad the CD was when I actually sat down and listened to it with the intention of discovering something that would give the album an identity of its own, and couldn’t find anything at all. I sat there listening and listening and nothing stuck with me, nothing at all. It just seemed to me like a blunder of songs piled together to fill an album’s worth and get the product out. I blame it all on letting Fredrik Johansson get away…



Really… REALLY disappointed here.
