Incorporating heavy music with a soundscape influenced edge, transmission0 come out of the ashes of dutch hardcore band Reveal. With the break up of this band in 2001 guitarist Mischa van Rodijnen and bassplayer Dave van Beek decided it was time for a new chapter in their musical career. Being both big metalfans, but also fans of bands like Sonic youth and the Cure, they decided to try and link up these 2 styles of music in their songs.
This connection creates an atmosphere that, on one hand, is very heavy and has its roots in metal music, yet retains a musical tranquillity that is born out these varied textures. Following on from their debut ‘0’,released in the summer of 2004 on Go-Kart records, the band will be hitting their way to the UK during their extensive European tour with The End (Relapse).
