2006 - Silence Of All



Drop to Zero is a band that straddles the line between Rock and Metal. While some of their songs lean to one side or the other, all of their songs contain elements of both genres of music. They draw inspiration from many bands, from Deftones, Glassjaw, to A Perfect Circle, Incubus. The band is constantly revamping their sound to try to incorporate more influences and styles. Although the band does not have a specific sound that they try to emulate, they came together to write about a common idea: the pain and emotion of life situations.

Drop to Zero broke onto the local stage on September 23 2004, a month and a half after they were formed. Drop to Zero then got a chance to play a bigger venue when they were able to open for the band Mushroomhead at Peabody’s in Cleveland in March of 2005. Since then Drop to Zero has lit up the local music scene at venues all over Northeastern Ohio, returning to Peabody’s for the Cleveland Music Festival in 2006 and opened the for Vast at the Agora. The band has also had an opportunity to play at the High Five and the Basement in Columbus, and a venue in Taunton, Massachusetts. They band also strongly believes in playing for others. They have organized and performed at two charity shows: A Song for Carlie in Fall 2005 and Novembeard for the Cure in Fall of 2006. They also performed at Overload, a charity show put on by WSTB, in December of 2007.

The band has also been exposed to Northeast Ohio through written word. The band has been featured in publications including the Record Courier, the Kent Stater
The Gateway News, The Hudson Hub, The Scene, and The Star Beacon. Many of the articles where covering shows that the had played or would be playing.

This sound has earned the band air time on several radio stations with multiple songs. They can be heard at any time on local Streetsboro station WSTB 88.9 the Alternation. On this particular station, they have four songs in rotation: Morning, Silver Streets, Empty, and This Addiction. They can also be heard on the local program on Cleveland station K-Rock 92.3. Drop to Zero has two songs in rotation on this particular station: Choke and This Addiction. Finally their song Choke can be heard Akron University’s student-run radio station 88.1 on the station’s night rock program.

Their first album “Silence of All” came out in November of 2006 and has sold over 300 copies. This album displays some classic rock feel with guitar riffs from Brendan Davis and Scott Lambert, the bass lines of Derrick Yopp and the melodic voice of lead singer Conor Sessions. The album also contains some elements of metal music such as the steady double bass runs of drummer Derek Desko and the mind piercing scream of Sessions. All of this is cast in the shadow of honest lyrics that are hard to ignore. The band sees writing music as an outlet for themselves and a way to reach out to others and connect with them. Guitarist Brendan Davis describes music as, “a way to make others identify with you. People want to feel like they are not alone.”

The music means something not only to every member of the band but also to the fans. The band wants the fans to be able to identify with the band and not feel so alone.
The band takes this idea and relays it in their live shows. They want to be able to convey what excites them about writing and performing the music. The band aims to write good music that people can relate to. Play that music in as many places as we can, eventually make a living off it.
