Zilch (stylized as zilch) was an alternative/industrial rock band formed in 1996 by hide (formerly in X Japan), Ray McVeigh (formerly in The Professionals), Paul Raven (Killing Joke), Joey Castillo (Danzig and Queens of the Stone Age) and I.N.A. (hide with Spread Beaver).
Before the release of its first album, 3.2.1., the group already faced a major setback, as frontman hide died in May 1998. The band did continue to perform live with the help of several guest musicians and released a remix album, Bastard Eyes, based on their debut. They also released another studio album, SkyJin, and two singles, "Mimizuzero" and "Charlie's Children".
Zilch disbanded in 2002. Five years after they broke up, Paul Raven died.
