Not even one year after their recent crushing full length release, Italian complex, multi-faceted metal/hardcore beast ZEIT is back with some more vicious tunes that will make you forget about new DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN record. Slated for an October 29th released via a number of amazing DIY labels including Assurd Records (screen-printed vinyl – pre-order now!), Dischi Bervisti, Tanato Records, Shove, Icore Produzioni, Dingleberry records, Rip Roaring Shit Storm Records, Epidemic Records, Indelirium Records,ToTeN ScHwAN records and Cave Canem D.I.Y. (CDs), the “Monument” EP features 3 unreleased tracks and is accompanied by “The Swarm”, originally by influential Swedish death metal maestros AT THE GATES. Well-produced, deep, full of anger, crushing riffs and rapid fire vocals, it’s ZEIT proving again that they are one of the most exciting European hardcore bands to keep an eye on these days. Launch this shattering experiment and tell us what you think in the comments below.
The band commented:
Our first LP “The World is Nothing” has received a success that we did not expect.In the last year we played several shows in Italy and around Europe and then we decided to take a break to write new stuff.This is how “Monument” is born: 3 unreleased tracks of chaotic hardcore in the name of growth and musical research, accompanied by the cover of “The Swarm” by the masters of the Swedish death metal At The Gates.This EP anticipates the writing of the new album and the upcoming European tour.

ZEIT is an hardcore band from Venice (Italy) formed in 2014. On the very same year they record their first “Zoe-Bios” EP at Hate Studio in Vicenza. The following year, March 2015, they record their debut “The World Is Nothing” LP, still at Hate Studios. The LP is released thanks to various European labels and is widely acclaimed by both fans and critics. Later that year ZEIT embark on their first European tour, which is the beginning of a long series of shows during which ZEITplay along with a number of well known bands from both the Italian and international hardcore scene (such as: Wolfbrigade, All Pigs Must Die, Tragedy, Birds In Row, Hierophant, Bologna Violenta, The Secret, Gas Attack, Gnarwolves, Trash Talk, Gust, Halshug, No turning Back, Long Knife, Demonwomb).
In 2016 the band starts experimenting new approaches to composition, leading them back to the studio to record their new “Monument” EP, being released on October 29th. While working on composing their next full length, ZEIT will leave on their second European tour in November.
