referencing Gorilla, LP, Album, brain 1017, 1017
These are one of the early German heavy bands, but they were a bit different as they incorporated elements of jazz and blues. The outcome is like a. cross between Birth Control ('70-75) and Emergency only with more power.You can see why they picked their name even on Natron, the first cut, with its jazzy format, acid lyrics and pure power. Possibly 2 of the best tracks are Hear What I'm Talking - a heavily percussive track with freaky guitar solos (similarities here to Gum Guru, Eloy, Nine Days Wonder) and Blind People, which is the most powerful cut on the album. It has excellent sax and gliss/echoed guitar work.
