Morgenstern – Zeitgeist (Album – darkTunes Music Group)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Industrial-Metal.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: The second full length album of Swiss formation Morgenstern has been preceded by numerous singles. Notice by the way this band has nothing to do with the same-named project known from the Ant-Zen label roster.

Content: “Zeitgeist” is a hard and merciless production which will rapidly evoke the influence of Rammstein. The songs are driven by furious guitar parts and refined by elevating electronic arrangements. The vocals are harsh and sung in German.

+ + + : If we forget for a moment any possible sound connection with Rammstein I would dare to say it’s one of the most convincing productions in its genre. There’s a true balance between guitar and electronics resulting in a few outstanding songs.

– – – : The main point that could hurt is that there’s only one Rammstein and this band is big and unique… but who cares!?

Conclusion: Alluring and powerful Industrial-Metal music.

Best songs: “Schockmaschine”, “Para Bellum”, “Hass Ihn”.

Rate: 8.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
