Mischa van Rodijnen
Michiel van der Avoird
Bart Waalen
Leon de Groot
Dave van Beek

Incorporating heavy music with a soundscape influenced edge, transmission0 came 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.
Some songs were written, but because of lack of time and involvement in other bands the two didn’t get serious with transmission0 until the summer of 2003. That’s when they met Michiel van der Avoird, a keyboardwizard that perfected the sound of the band. The three of them started working on songs and t0’s style started to develop more and more. Michiel’s skills on the keys seemed the complement for the atmosphere of transmission0. An atmosphere that, on one hand, is very heavy and has its roots in metal music, but on the other hand, has this musical tranquillity because of the varied textures.

At the end of the summer enough songs were written to record an album. So in August, September and October 2003 the three recorded their debut ‘0’. Once this album was recorded transmission0 started to look for a drummer and a second guitarplayer. Eventually they were found in Bart Waalen, who also plays drums for sk;rl, and Leon de Groot, who was left bandless after the split-up of indierockers the Void.
With this line-up transmission0 began playing shows. The band got picked up fairly quickly and had the opportunity to play with some great bands. Then, in the run up to the worldwide release of the cd/lp in the summer of 2004 on Go-Kart records, the band played at the prestigious Furyfest in Lemans, France. After that festival, people started really showing interest in the band. When the cd/lp was released in July, this interest grew even bigger. Interviews were done with magazines like Metal Hammer Germany, Terrorizer, RockSound UK, etc.
All these magazines agree on one thing: transmission0 has something new to bring and can be a big promise for the future.

Releases On Go-Kart Records

"Memory Of A Dream"
"Die Gewissheit, dass Musik noch bewegen kann und sich einen Dreck um konventionelle Hörgewohnheiten schert." -METAL HAMMER

"Mitreissend, schwelgerisch und auch exakt aggressiv genug. Unbedingt zu erfahren!" - METAL HEART

"Packendes Drumming, eine brüllende Hardcore-Stimme, sehr viel Platz für getragene, leise Momente – “Memory Of A Dream” hat seinen Reiz." Rock Hard

"Tiefer, immer tiefer wird man in den Strudel komplexer Brachial-Sounds hinein gesogen und willenlos ergibt man sich der allgegenwärtigen Wuchtigkeit von “Memory Of A Dream“. Großes Kino!" - LEGACY

"If you were to put Transmission0 in the ring with Swedish sluggers COL, there really would be a contest" -ROCKSOUND UK

"Memory Of A Dream is an album that really does deserve a listen - Ignoring it would be sheer criminal." -FFRUK

"Transmission0 are truly a widescreen, cinematic band of epic proportions. The best thing to come out of Holland since Grolsch!" - Big Cheese

"Loaded with foreboding nihilistic chords, icy synth pokes and rasping vocal scrapes, this could be the soundtrack for disturbing film When The Wind Blows. We like a lot!" - Rocksound

"Großes Kino; was TRANSMISSION0 auf ihrem Debüt-Album abliefern, trifft mich völlig unvorbereitet und ich bin einfach platt!" - Legacy

"Die Klangwalze, die Transmission0 entfesslen und mit interessanten Sounds anreichert, ist für sich genommen enorm beeintruckend." - Metal Hammer

"Mal rackern die Herrschaften Industrial-Death-Eruptionen im bösartigsten
Red-Harvest-Stil, mal gibt´s federnde Sonic-Youth-Anleihen. Ohrwurmmaterial!" - Rock Hard
