Betonkrebs by Zeit, a furious lament!

RockmusicRaider - Zeit - Betonkrebs - EP Cover

Zeit are very angry, furious actually. That’s why they decided to slam an EP onto the music market that is – for now – seriously hampered by the current pandemic. And indeed, they hail from Germany where the restrictions are especially harsh these days.

But – wait a minute – they don’t lament the current virus, other people are already doing this ad nauseam. Instead, they got us a dirge for the useless Year of the Dark Lord 2020. About all those many other dumb issues that happened then and kinda disappeared under the radar of things.

Zeit – Konvergenz (2017) – Review

Last updated on 10 July 2020

RockmusicRaider Review - Zeit - Konvergenz - Album Cover The old provinces of Eastern Germany seem to be a hotbed for interesting bands of all kinds. Indeed of all things cultural – and beyond. And this goes for theatrical endeavors as well as music of all flavors.

I love them, but they are so out of the mainstream that not many of the RMR [...] Click to raid more!
