Steamboat Switzerland performs ZEITSCHREI in Vienna.
Steamboat Switzerland performed these two sets with the kind of intensity that a composer usually only dreams of. Their focus in the gruelingly-difficult written portions was absolute.

Dominik Blum added to the intensity in the middle of the first set, scaring away the faint-of-heart with his heavy-metal vocal growling.
