Zer0 れい explains:
Hello Zer0 れい , can you tell us a bit more about yourself?
Hi everyone! I’m Sebastien but most of you will probably know me as Zer0 れい. I’ve been making music under that alias since early 2018 and have released on labels such as Seikomart, Sunset Grid, power_lunch, Palm84 and Holloway Tapes. I’m also an active voice in the Twitter and Discord vaporwave communities as well as a mod on the Vaporwave and Mallsoft subreddits.
How long have you been producing music?
I’ve actually been making music for close to a decade, while organising and managing gigs at my local punk venue in my free time. Previously I mainly made Noise, Soundscapes and other experimental stuff under the monikers Crucifix Eye, Unholy Analog Noisemachine and MxCx, these influences shine through in my current music as well. My style has been described as being gloomy, dark, dystopian and perturbing as well as crossing over into Dark Ambient and Synthwave territories at times.
What is the story behind Hellveterra?
Hellveterra is my latest adventure, bridging the gap between 2 of my biggest musical influences: Epic Black Metal and ofcourse Ambient Vaporwave. The album is meant to provoke an unsettling post-human enviroment teeming with nature, where only antiquated machinery is left functional. Vast swathes of creaking empty factory buildings withe the occasional burst of machinery giving their last attempt at a coherent message. I had a lot of fun creating both the music and album artwork, drawing upon many years of love for oldschool RPG’s, chiptune music, cheesy metalriffs and ofcourse the many facets of the vapor scene.
