"Used to live in the same town in New Hampshire where Nevada Beach is from. It's too bad, that they didn't do it as Rosie and kept Nick Noiseux on Bass with Al Silva on drums. They where really good and it's cool that a local band made to a major label. I think on the release one problem for them is the Rhythm section could be alot better. With Nick and Al they worked great together and really rocked. Which did happen when both rejoined the group and then where dropped by Metal Blade. I'm dumb founded how Metal Blade Records never did anything with this release or that radio (exspecially WHEB 100.3 in Portsmouth, NH) never really played them. Their are some great songs on this release, being: "Waiting For An Angel", "On Zero Day", "Only The Fool", "Back For Blood", "Walking Dead", and "Stand". I believe, "Waiting For An Angel" was the first single, but add "Only The Fool" and "Walking Dead" two awesome songs. Plus, too bad the Rosie tunes, "Never Say Die" or "Kick'n The Dog" are left off. Both of those songs are really good, and would have gotten alot of airplay with Metal Blade's help. Another problem Nevada Beach had is one that effects all the types of music and doesn't matter what the current scene is. When this release came out, every band had to sound like Guns 'N Roses, or your nothing and all the labels beat this too death. You even had, Geffen Records signing Rock City Angel's and kept them from competing against Guns N' Roses. What I'm getting at is this, too many really good bands never saw the light of day with that mentality and alot of really really bad bands got more credit than they deserved. Nevada Beach deserved more credit than they got and definately worth it to track this one down. Remember to crank it up, this one rocks."
Solid barroom rocker

"Nevada Beach's 1990 album Zero Day is a pretty decent offering of AC/DC meets Nazareth (with a dash of Molly Hatchet) hard rock songs. This is the kind of music you'd expect to hear playing at your rowdier local bar. Instead of going the glossy "ballads and keyboards" route that so many other bands took at the time, Nevada Beach stuck to their hard rockin' guns. Unfortunately that meant the band went largely unnoticed. Aside from an EP, this is their only release. It may not be very original, but it is a fun CD to spin when you want to hear some good, straightforward rock and roll.
The track listing is as follows:
1. Rough House
2. Waiting for an Angel
3. On Zero Day
4. Action Reaction
5. Only the Fool
6. Back for Blood
7. Walking Dead
9. Ground Zero
10. Gagged and Bound"
