CHANNEL ZERO's third album, "Unsafe" (1995), was the band's first effort to be released internationally. The group followed it up by touring with MEGADETH, DANZIG, SPUDMONSTERS and BIOHAZARD, and embarking on an Australian headlining run. A fourth album, "Black Fuel", followed in 1996 but it failed to make a dent on international charts, leading to the band's split in 1997.
CHANNEL ZERO was one of the most popular homegrown metal acts in Belgium, where the band's albums reportedly sold upwards of 20,000 copies each.
CHANNEL ZERO has been confirmed for this year's edition of the Graspop Metal Meeting, set to take place June 25-27, 2010 in Dessel, Belgium.
