Ground above Zero’s freshman release, Light It Up and Pray For Rain, will hit the streets on April 18, 2014.  The quasi metal artists first release (and long anticipated) is a solid effort from beginning to end.  The powerful sonic assault kicks in on the opening track, “Hide And Seek (Ophelia)” and doesn’t let up. The band soars on “Raven’s Voice” and “Riot” as the assault continues.  Heather Haas-Prestridge vocals are spot on and the band rocks the house, literarily, I cranked this one up and rattled a few pics off the wall.  The project was recorded and mixed at Evergroove Studio with the assistance of Brad Smalling and the sound is impeccable, not a lot to complain about here.  The crew also enlisted the assistance of local legend Tim Kaminski (Yerkish) who provided vocals and lyrics on “Discontent”.  I give the release a great big local thumbs-up.  The the crew should pat themselves on the back for a job well done and get busy on their next release, I’m already jonesing’.

  1. Tim,

    Thank you so very much for the kind words. Ground Above Zero was a joy to work with and they worked *hard* in the studio on that album. I’m glad that hard work is showing through in the tunes and I’m glad you enjoyed the album!

    Peace,
    Brad Smalling
