From Zero was a nu metal music group from Chicago, Illinois. 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 such as Limp Bizkit.
The band formed in 1998, and released their debut self-titled EP ("The Green Album") in 1999. 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 albums in One Nation Under (2001) and My So-Called Life (2003).
After parting ways with Arista, they went to work preparing for their third album. Ultimately nothing eventuated and they broke up 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 did not gain widespread popularity within the music community as a whole, they are well recognized both in the Chicago area and among nu metal fans.
