2 stars Mythos - st (1972)

The German progressive scene of the early seventies had it all; free experimentation and seemingly very little knowlegde about 'what music's supposed to be', in contrast with the English progressive scene that was way more exploratory and intellectual. The krautrock scene has a lot of interesting bands, but there's also a group of relatively untalented bands that was lifted by the zeitgeist and in my huble opinion Mythos is one of them.

Mythos plays spacerock with folk en heavy rock influences in a minimalistic three musicians setting. Full of reverbs and rythm and blues parts. The opening track is a rock interpretation of a classical peace with the flute as main instrument, 'Oriental Journey' has folk and space moments whereas 'Hero's Death' has heavy rock passages. On all tracks the vocals are false (though others would prefer the relatively artistic sounding 'atonal'), it hurts my musical brain. The second side is filled with minimalistic spacerock themes and some sounds of nature. During the ending section we get to hear a rather blunt science fiction story in spoken work, about a timetraveller who finds humanity is doomed in the long end.

Conclusion. This is an amateuristic but sometimes enjoyable spacerock record that I can only recommend to hardcore space- and krautcollectors and people who like obscure music for the sake of it (which is fine by the way). Two stars.
