Uberfall: Treasures

Uberfall is a band made up of Pit Kayser, on synthesizer and vocals; Markus Stauss, on saxes, synthesizer, vocals, sequencer, and extras; Andi Muckenhirn, on drums and percussion. On this album they include guests on "Nr. 3" - Jean Chaine, electric bass; Caroline Fahrni, on violin; André Müller, on alto & baritone sax: and Alex Schaub, on electric bass on tracks 8 - 14.

This music has a 1980s German beer hall sound to it. All of the lyrics are sung in German, so I did not understand much. The music has a heavy keyboard sound to it, similar to Kraftwork, but with more progressive influences. At times I can even hear some Madness influences as well.

The saxophone work is amazing at times and overshadows the 'synthy' keyboard vibe.

"... in alle Ewigkeit" and the over nine minute epic "Endzeit" were two of the standout tracks for me. If you like Kraftwork mixed with more trumpets and horns you will probably like this album.
