Biography

Random Zero is a melodic alternative rock quartet from Bangor, Maine.
The group consists of Scott Dufour on drums, Spencer Reuillard on bass and backing vocals, Rich Roderick on lead guitar and vocals, and Adam Dresser on rhythm guitar and lead vocals.
Their unique sound consists of haunting melodies vocal harmonies that take advantage of the range of influences and styles within the band.
Adam and Rich have known each other for years and were previously in a band together.
For personal reasons, Adam had to leave that band but they were able to find a replacement and continue playing.
Years later, shortly after their former band called it quits, Adam contacted Rich about starting a new project. He played some new material on an old acoustic for him and together they recorded some rough demos. Richie was able to add his own flair to these songs and the duo hit the local bars and open mic’s to test their sound.
Later, with the help of craigslist they met a pair of musicians, formerly guitar and drums of a local 90’s cover band.
Scott would end up staying on as their new drummer.
At that time, with 3 guitar players, Richie and the 3rd guitarist swapped off on lead guitar and bass.
After a few months he chose to leave and pursue a solo career

Not long after this departure did the band receive an email from someone that had heard them online asking if they were looking for any members. So they gave him a tryout and a month later Spencer was announced as their new bass player. With a full quartet again, the band began anew and continued work on the groundwork laid by those rough acoustic recordings.

Random Zero began work on what will be their debut EP "Haunted" in December 2012 and as of March '13 is being mastered and prepared for release.

They continue to write original material and expand on their sound.

Their many combined influences include (but are not limited to):
Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Coheed and Cambria, Neil Young, Marilyn Manson, Portishead, Evanescence, Bone Thugs 'n' Harmony, Pink Floyd, Killswitch Engage, Amon Amarth, Pantera, Rob Zombie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Rush, Lynrd Skynrd, Black Sabbath. Dio, Type O Negative, and life for better and for worse.

Lyrics

Kaleidoscope

Written By: Random Zero

"Kaleidoscope"

Delusion running free, pollute all inside of me
Bleed the poison, pick the wound it is seething.
Meaningless poetry, it's toxic chemistry
Look for answers but the truth lays in being

The kaleidoscope breaks in my mind
Tear open the sky with shattered prisms
Only leaving behind ghosts in my eyes
Crying out against this life's rhythm

Wanting of time before, hidden behind the door,
Is it rotting fruit tainting what is growing?
Abandon decaying youth, discover the living proof,
and the knowledge: Just believe in the knowing

The kaleidoscope breaks in my mind
Tear open the sky with shattered prisms
Only leaving behind ghosts in my eyes
Crying out against this life's rhythm

The kaleidoscope breaks in my mind
Tear open the sky with shattered prisms
Only leaving behind ghosts in my eyes
Crying out against this life's rhythm

The kaleidoscope breaks in my mind
Tear open the sky with shattered prisms
Only leaving behind ghosts in my eyes
Crying out against this life's rhythm

Hollow

Written By: Random Zero

"Hollow"

On the broken road that winds
here in this ghost town I bind
all remains of past deceit
finding no eyes here to meet

Can we make it still? Lost in this life's fog
or are we doomed to know the wrath of a dead God
Can we make it still? after you I'll follow
this burning ache inside; inside I'm hollow

Here now flayed for all to see
find that evil dwells in me
watch and feel the rain touch down
it's warm and red on ground

Can we make it still? Lost in this life's fog
or are we doomed to know the wrath of a dead God
Can we make it still? after you I'll follow
this burning ache inside; inside I'm hollow

It's your fate to deny the architect of your demise
Now you join the ranks abide. Take your place align inside.
Inside...

My world consumed in fire
ash is blown around
Death is in the air
Screams the only sound

Can we make it still? Lost in this life's fog
or are we doomed to know the wrath of a dead God
Can we make it still? after you I'll follow
this burning ache inside; inside I'm hollow

Haunted

“Haunted”

I don’t think things can go slower
I’m just trying to get over
If everything is now all said and done
I just wish I was the lucky one

I can feel you in the air
Remember the smell of your black hair
The tender pressing of your lips
Should’ve savored every kiss

In all the skies I see your brown eyes
Haunted by the sound of blackbird cries
In any place that I can be
You’re haunting me, you are haunting me

Message sent return to sender
I’m a cliché with my heart in a blender
Is this hate, is your verdict true
Or did you run away because I haunt you too

Can you feel me in the air?
Do you ever wish I’m there
The tender pressing of our lips
Should’ve savored every kiss

In all the skies I see your brown eyes
Haunted by the sound of blackbird cries
In any place that I can be
You’re haunting me, you are haunting me

I can feel you in the air
Remember the smell of your black hair
The tender pressing of your lips
Should’ve savored every kiss

In all the skies I see your brown eyes
Haunted by the sound of blackbird cries
In any place that I can be
You’re haunting me, you are haunting me

In all the skies I see your brown eyes
Haunted by the sound of blackbird cries
In any place that I can be
You’re haunting me, you are haunting me

Ever Missing You

Written By: Random Zero

"Ever Missing You"

Once in a while,
I think I see you from the corner of my eye
Once in a while,
I tell myself that same old lie
I know I must be so crazy for
even caring when I'm just a name
I know deep down I wish you well but,
you won't do the same

Ever missing you

Once in a while,
I catch myself looking for your car driving by
Once in a while,
I forget to be a man and wipe the blur from my eyes
Now is the time just keep pretending
and everything will be okay.
Put on your best smile with a shot or two,
or five, and go on with your day.

Ever missing you
Ever missing you

Maybe I'm just going crazy
It couldn't be that far from the truth
I'm not wrong for reminiscing
But I know I'm wrong for
Ever missing you

Ever missing you
