The self-titled album of the German Krautrock-Band Nosferatu is - unfortunately - their only one. The Band was build up in 1970 in Frankfurt am Main, one of the central places of the student rebellion in the late sixties and of underground culture. Nosferatu represents a stunning example of the vivid German scene of progressive rock with self-made compositions. Their compositions are very intelligent, tricky and variable. Their sound is characterized by an interesting conversation between keyboards, flute, saxophone and guitar as lead-instruments, based on a heavy grooving rhythm section. Also, they are able to mix hard rock elements with tender melodious parts. In tracks like "Work day" the Band operates in a progressive way with sound-effects to create a tremendous atmosphere. Sometimes the arrangements and the sound remind of East of Eden or - in the contemporary German scene - Rufus Zuphall and Out of Focus. The album is great from the very beginning till the last note, but I want to emphasize the quality of the tracks "Found my home" (with excellent vocals) and "No. 4" (maybe the highlight of progressive style here). In 1972 Nosferatu splitted off, in spite of their successfull supporting-acts for headliner as Steamhammer and Humble Pie. Three members of the line-up (B. Braumann, T. Grohé, M. Kessler) are already dead.

Originally released in 1970 Nosferatu's sole album is a true highlight of the early Krautrock-era. The six musicians (a.o. Christan Felke, sax and flute, later with Epsilon and organ-player Reinhard Grohe, later with Papa Zoot Band) played a raw, rough and heavy progressive style. Some regard it as one of the best heavy progressive records made in Germany. With great guitar and organ playing and highly talented flute and sax playing, the album is an outstanding release of the first wave of the German progressive rock. Sadly Nosferatu never recorded a second album.

Imagine if Bo Hansson had a bad acid trip. That might give you a clue as to how this album sounds. Jethro Tull-like flute interwoven with killer sax with a mean streak a mile wide. The second track Willie The Fox is the most deviant, extending into paranoid nightmares. Portions of this album sound edited together rather than performed as a whole. Still it's a whopper of a trip and highly recommended.
