3 stars The krautrock style is not complete without this record! Indeed, Necronomicon shows here in what consists a mix of visceral jam hard rock and krautrock, something I have rarely seen so far. Maybe the fictitious term "krhaurdrock" is appropriate to classify this record. The lyrics are sung in German. The ultra omnipresent electric guitar has a very pinched sound that remains absolutely not sissy: the guitar sound is quite gross, especially the solos, but it is loudly played very much in the foreground; there are some impressive riff sounds. Some psychedelic parts occur, and it is confirmed by the presence of a good typical electric organ. This record is good but the visceral guitars often lack structure and sound quality: the other instruments, especially the bass and drums, are interesting but the guitars should have been put more in the background. The Hendrixian "In Memoriam" contains the best riffs, reminding the "Freedom" song. As a comparison, right after the listen, I played Hendrix's Cry of love album, and his guitar solos sound just brought sunlight at the end of afternoon, after a rather dark day.

Rating: 3.5 stars
