5 stars This might be the most Krautrock sounding of Gunter's solo releases. His third and final studio album and check out admireArt's review for details surrounding this release. Gunter was part of the legendary Krautrock band GAM and this will be the third time I've given five stars between GAM and Gunter Schickert's solo albums. I just love his sound and the way he uses field recordings, echo guitar, trumpet, tapes and so on. A brilliant mind in my opinion when it comes to music and getting his start with Klaus Schulze didn't hurt I'm sure.

"Hollentanz" opens with what sounds like birds chirping crazily as a heavy drum and guitar sound joins in. Krautrock styled vocals a minute in and this is catchy but very underground sounding as the vocals echo and sound double tracked. So good though. Classic Krautrock right here as other vocals join in and other sounds dizzying the senses. Trumpet after 4 1/2 minutes.

"Rabe In De Nacht" opens with guitar and percussion along with experimental bits. Some vocal expressions too. Man this sounds good cranked up. Vocals are pretty much spoken after 3 minutes as the guitar grinds it out. Just a killer track. "Es Ist Schon Kurz Vor 12" has this raw sounding and fast paced guitar. A second sound of guitar I think arrives just before a minute. Distant words 3 minutes in as the guitar continues to power through the soundscape. More guitar like sounds 4 1/2 minutes in. It ends with fireworks and crowd noise and this will continue pretty much to the final track believe it or not.

"Guitarre Wlaurniam" continues with the fireworks and crowd noise as fast paced guitar sounds arrive but they suddenly slow right down, atmosphere too. Another guitar starts to solo over top at 3 1/2 minutes. Nice. Fireworks and crowd noise to the fore to end it blending in to "Suleika" where intricate guitar joins in, intertwining with another it seems. Very mathy as a beat joins in. So good! Catchy as atmosphere adds some depth. Spoken words around 5 1/2 minutes and the fireworks are back with crowd noise(haha) as it blends into the next tune.

"Schwarz Voll Weiss" is that tune as heavy drums join in along with atmosphere, vocals and more. More fireworks and crowd noise as it blends into "7/5" where some amazing guitar joins in then trumpet as it builds while the fireworks keep blasting off and the guitar keeps churning. The guitar steps aside as trumpet, fireworks and crowd noise continue as it blends into "Kinder In Der Wildnis"

Mellotron Storm | 5/5 |
