With the official release of The New Zeitgeist, author/musician Eric Kiefer hopes that he’ll provide his fellow horror fans with something they’ve never seen before… the first “multi-media” zombie concept album.
“It’s a rock opera and a pulp fiction novella for all of the deadheads out there,” said Kiefer. “As far as I know, nothing like this has ever been done in the zombie apocalypse genre. The combination is the first of its kind.”
It’s clear that Kiefer is a writer influenced by the classics of zombie lore – George Romero, Max Brooks, Robert Kirkman. While it contains its fair share of gore and action, The New Zeitgeist series focuses more on the day-to-day realities of life during the zombie apocalypse… what people do when they’re not being chased around by zombies.
Paired with the companion music album, The New Zeitgeist: Songs from the Zombie Apocalypse, the book paints a terrifyingly three-dimensional picture of the end of the world and the life that comes afterwards.
