A very special instrumental album. Lower tuned acoustic guitars, massive drums and elegant bass lines create a cinematic soundscape full of beauty and endless space. Each song is like its own movie, the whole album like a grandiose monumental work, full of tension, dynamics, with masterfully staged musical gems. Mastermind behind this production is Jan Korbach, guitarist / composer / arranger , plays guitar with the doom band " Neander" among others and was part of Casper's live and studio band for a long time. For Jan, the album is a tribute to the traditional, hard American music of the Wild West and to the great Ennio Morricone, whose last concert on the " Farewell Tour " has left an indelible impression on him. The album was written, recorded and produced in Berlin and the "Concrete" in the title is no accident. It stands for the strong contrast between the vastness of the American West and the narrowness, the hard, cold, gray concrete of the metropolis during the winter months. That's why ATEM's music sounds so grandiose different.
