Zombieland, the latest studio album by the German MEGAHERZ is still haunting our auditory canals, whilst the five piece has already been busy working on fresh shenanigans – look forward to the new MEGAHERZ shredfest as the band announces its EP “Erdwärts”.
There are four new and very varied songs on this EP: two of them stand for pure riff-laden heaviness, then there is a midtempo one and a rather slow and broody track that will be the talk of the town.
Lyric-wise fear is at the heart of it all – fear of the unknown and fear of a world that seems chaotic and out of control (Schwarzer Mann).
It’s time to stop hiding and face those fears. Glorreiche Zeiten’ (Glorious times) on the other hand wishes strength to dreamers aiming to fulfill their biggest dreams.
Einsam (Lonely) tells the story of the demise of a relationship with a twist – the one who leaves seems rather gleeful. On top of it and just like with Götterdämmerung and Zombieland, two MEGAHERZ classics got re-recorded and fans will embrace the new versions of faves Teufel and Jordan.
A wondrous mix and a mighty appetizer for the MEGAHERZ German tour in January 2016 and something to heal the pain of waiting for the next album.
