    Spoiler alert: Suffering is inevitable. Philosophers tell us the key to enjoying existence is accepting that suffering is an essential part of the experience. You can't have happiness without sadness, and you cannot hope to grow if you never face a challenge. If we can accept that as truth, then we can become anyone and anything we desire, and Zero Theorem wants to be the next band that changes your life.  

    Blending science fiction with heavy music in a way that never feels forced, Zero Theorem captures the big picture of being by focusing on the minutia of life. Their songs aim for emotions we all experience and leverage them to make statements about the flaws in our way of thinking. They stop short of claiming to know the way the world should be, but they make it clear that we are meant for more than rough lives of labor and strife. Human Beings are capable of so much more than we realize, and thanks to bands like Zero Theorem, we are becoming more aware of that fact with each passing day.  

    On this episode of Inside Music, host James Shotwell talks to the band about their music and the lessons they hope to convey.

His latest EP, The Outside, plays like a late-night road trip spent with the wind in your hair and the radio on as loud as it will go.
