Rockin' proto-metal & psych from a half-German and half British band circa: 1971. Tons of loud guitars including a few moves into that twin guitar harmonies that only a few others did at the time (Namely Thin Lizzy, Wishbone Ash). Most feel that this band was too "British sounding" to be "true krautrock". Regardless of the nitpicking this is a KILLER album that spans from heavy rock to psych without much trouble. Play with early King Crimson, UFO. Acid Mother's Temple & Black Sabbath.|
((((((1))))) Awesome! Heavy-ass twin guitars and a steady beat, wailin' chords & a slight boogie flair all that works perfectly.
((((2)))) Mellotron-laden, slow, proggy-psych folk. A really strong King Crimson vibe.
((((3)))) Jazzy, jamming, hard rock.
(((4))) So-so folk-rock with an anti-drug message. Not far from the stuff Clapton was doing at this time.
(((((5)))) Slow intro that goes for about 5:40 then moves into a hard rockin' semi-prog level.
((((6)))) Rudimentary but really good heavy rock with basic chords.
(((((7)))) Awesome fuzz guitar, bass and drumming the vox are pretty odd but it's well worth checking these jams.
(((8))) Incredible drumming but the funky jams aren't always spot on.
((((((9))))) Holy crap! Scorching hard rawk with way distorted guitars (for '71 anyway).
(((((10))))) Whoa! Heaaaavy! Similar to #9 except sludgey. Sounds like they're using same production as the 1st Sabbath LP.
