Mile Marker Zero biography
If you've ever played the game Rockband then chances are you are already familiar with MILE MARKER ZERO and their music. The band was formed around 2003 in New Haven, Connecticut with the preconceived intention of taking an off-kilter, multi-tiered approach towards rock music. One of the main goals was to create music that was a real experience for the listener, an idea that was clearly inspired by the quintets fine indulgence in the early progressive rock music of the 70's and its epic style songwriting. Still there is definitely more to the band's style than just rehashing the past glories of others. MILE MARKER ZERO manages to blend their progressive rock tendencies with the mid-90's alternative rock music while adding a definite metal edge to the mix.

The band released an EP called The Haunted in August 2006, which also marked the point where the quintet's lineup began to settle into place with Dave ALLEY on vocals, Mark FOCARILE on keyboards, John TUOHY on guitar, Tim RYKOSKI on bass and Doug ALLEY on drums. Their self-titled studio album "Mile Marker Zero" was released in 2009 and it has given us a clear understanding of what this band is all about. If you want music that is grandiose and over the top, while still strongly melodic and accessible then you should definitely give MILE MARKER ZERO a go!

Review by Rune2000

— First review of this album —
3 stars It didn't take long for Mile Marker Zero to establish their own unique style, especially if you consider that this release came out shortly after the new lineup finally got into place! The Hunted is a five track EP that gives a versatile coverage of all aspects of the band's style. The 7 minute long opening number, titled The Keeper, really draws us into the experience of progressive metal mixed with very distinct mid-'90 alternative rock music flavor and the band surely sticks to their guns throughout the rest of the material.

Even though I personally have never been a huge fan alternative rock, seeing it as somewhat of an unholy offspring of the early '90s Grunge, there is still plenty to enjoy here! Mile Marker Zero do offers their listeners an epic-styled, approach on quite a few occasions, without making the results sound cheesy like many of so called Progressive Metal acts seem to do these days. Dave Alley might sometimes come off as trying to embody the persona of Scott Stapp, but that might just be my prejudice taking the best of me. Well, I guess you'll have to give songs like Plead My Case and Surrender a spin to actually see where you stand on this whole issue!

The definite crown jewel of The Hunted EP comes right towards its end with the 7 minute title track. This is easily the most progressive piece of music that Mile Marker Zero delivers on this release and it will guaranty to make the fans scream for more. Others, more conservative of us, will probably just shrug their shoulders and move on. Since I'm still undecided as to whether I'm a fan or not, let's keep things at good, but non-essential rating.

**** star songs: The Keeper (7:01) Agoraphobia (5:55) The Haunted (7:12)

*** star songs: Plead My Case (3:49) Surrender (4:10)

Thanks to bonnek for the artist addition.
