This is a very fine example of german hard rock anyway. Albeit the cover design, which I think is rather funny and reminds me of Eiliffs album Girlrls!, the music contained here is dark and heavy but meaningful although this record may have been released as kind of german exploitatation product by Philips in 1973 as some aspects of the recording remain in obscurity until today.
Ken Hensley of Uriah Heep is said to play organ on this record but the rumour was never actually confirmed. Some people say he did for some pennies he may have obtained while being on holiday in germany.
The other members gathering here are from the band Virus, whose album Revelation is also recommendable because of its strong musical content and the will of studio experimentation.
One of the best prehistoric "Deutschrock" you may find and a real one offshoot not really comparable to any other record I know so far. A bit beyond description and mainstream even in the early 70s.

At ~880 USD(?!) for an original lp of this fine record it would take a lot to feel like I wasn't getting duped with a bootleg somehow. Even if God itself vowed for the authenticity I think i'd pass at this crazy price. I think I'll gladly settle for a cd even if it also is of dubious origins... But to each their own and I will surely drool at your original copy. Enjoy!
