Schramm - Asbest
EBM, Industrial Robert Meyer, Ringo Behn and Roman Zilski started the band Schramm in 2006. In 2011 Schramm released a promo-EP called Asbest, the EP contains 6 tracks and was available as a free download for a limited time between 30/8 2011 - 30/11 2011.

Schramm promote themselves as a band that brings together old-school EBM, punk, electro and even noise, something that becomes very clear after listening to the EP. The tracks feel modern and well-polished. They start out strong with the track "Asbest", a track which somehow manages to sound like a medley of Rammstein and And One with the rough singing and catchy lines combined with melodies that feel very And One-inspired. It's a fun track with lots of depth and layers in the music. The second track "Hass mich" follows in its predecessors footsteps considering the modern feel but has a much darker tone. I believe "Hass mich" is better suited for the old-school EBM crowd although I fear it might be a bit to clean and tilted towards the industrial scene to be able to charm them.

When listening to the EP you get the feeling that this is a band who are eager to show that they can span over many genres, the track "Musclecar" feels very light in comparison to "Nonnenstudio" which is burning to be played on any EBM-dance floor.

"Nonnenstudio" is followed by the two final tracks "Tierliebe" and "Yokozuna", both heavy tracks compared to the three first ones with some influence from the techno-scene. I'm not sure Schramm can win over the old-school EBM crowd, but they definitely have something for the EBM and industrial scene. It's an interesting EP with tracks that suit dance floors as well as in your earphones Monday morning.
