From Zero is a nu-metal group formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1998. Their music is distinguished from many earlier nu-metal groups with its greater focus on vocal harmonies, and correspondingly less elements of hip hop than groups like Limp Bizkit or Puya.Read More...
In 1999, the band independently released their self titled EP (referred to as "The Green Album"). At this time, they were also opening for bands such as Amen, Disturbed, Nickelback and Nothingface.
They later signed with Arista Records, where they released two major label albums in One Nation Under (which features many re-recorded songs from their self titled album) (2001) and My So-Called Life (2003). They had two music videos which are for their songs "Check Ya" and "Smack", both of which can be viewed over on You Tube. Before the recording of My So-Called Life, bassist Rob Ruccia left the band to do production work on other bands, leaving vocalist Jett to record the bass for the album. They later recruited Avi Kopernik to play bass for the group's live shows.
After being dropped by Arista less than a month after the release of My So-Called Life, they went to work preparing for their third album. As time went on, writing music became a chore and Jett with nothing to fall back on, needed to concentrate on a day job to support his family. Joe Pettinato, who already had a construction business, then left the band, and the rest of the group called it quits in 2005. Two songs from the intended album, "Middle of the Road" and "My Own Destiny", can still be streamed on their official PureVolume page.
Although they have not gained widespread popularity within the music community as a whole, they are well recognized both in the Chicago area and among nu metal fans.

- LyricsOnce I told you about my secrets
I say, "I trust you but that don't seem right"
Harsh decisions is what has made us
Grow ever slowly towards other sides
Forget about the time
- LyricsI started listening to my voice of reason
And you know it tells me every time just to walk away
But suddenly I found myself with back against the wall
And every little thing tears me up inside
There's something good that will come of this
- LyricsYes, I'm the one you're waiting for
Yes, I'm the one, yes, I'm the one
Who decides when times aren't right?
Well, who's left out? Well, I'm left out
Don't try, just leave it, it's all bitter change
- LyricsSlave you get what you bring
Tired or you get what we give
I feel like I'm stuck in between
Again, again, again and again
Loath, I've been subjected to what you've said
- LyricsYou seem to think that times have changed
It's all around beside me what you cry
Endless ever waiting, like the time I felt so jaded
Don't you ever try so where's your alibi?
It feels like someone killed my soul and told me what to say
