When Channel Zero decided to quit the band in 1997, they had released four albums in five years. These four albums gave them metal immortality. They started as an invisible grooving underground trash metal band. Soon they became the biggest metal phenomenon in the Benelux, probably thanks to their third album “Unsafe” and the fresh, sharp sound. This album brought them to the United States of America and they toured the world with the likes of Megadeth, Danzig and Biohazard and played the biggest European festivals.
In 1996 they released “Black Fuel”, produced by Attie Bauw. It quickly became the metal album of a whole generation. But despite the next European tour with Body Count, Channel Zero stopped in 1997.
14 years after they had played for the last time, Channel Zero showed their old and new fans that they had not lost their energy and brute force. The following summer the band headlined Graspop festival and Rock Werchter. The enthusiasm and positive feedback from the fans made the band go back into the studio to try some things.
June 2011: barely 12 months after their glorious return to the metal stage, Channel Zero released their first album in 15 years: “Feed’Em With A Brick”. Both the press and the fans loved it. And again Channel Zero conquered the metal stages in Belgium and the rest of Europe with club shows in the Benelux, European metal festivals such as Wacken and Hellfest and even a spot on the infamous metal cruise 70,000 Ton Metal.
