3 stars Here's a band that was a Kraut-supergroup without knowing it. After the debut the band would split and each of the members would move on to reasonably well-known bands such as Beggar's Opera, Aera, Karthago, Abacus, Emergency and Kin Ping Meh.

The opening track sticks to heavy rock with a psychedelic edge, it's something they pull off quite effectively but haling from 1972, it feels a bit old, almost like 1968 Deep Purple. You got to love the track though. Also Autumn is a pleasant acid rock track with a heavy blues basis. At times the band can be quite playful and the instrumental section in the middle isn't far off the symphonic style of Grobschnitt.

Butterking goes a step further down the symphonic line, with a very scenic structure combining gentle acoustic parts with melodious vocals, early VDGG type majestic organs, bits from classical music and more. The epic title track doesn't offer much new apart from the clumsy synth fiddling near the end.

Admitted, apart from Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, I'm not the biggest fan of this type of stuffy old heavy rock. This isn't a bad album and maybe this worked at its time, but even then I can't see how this compares to Heep or Purple in terms of quality.
