Eruption biography
Originating from the Berlin underground in the early 70's, Eruption was a short-lived experimental krautrock group formed by Conrad Schniztler. Many key players of Germany's music scene would come and go from the line-up, including Manuel Gottsching and Klaus Schulze (Ash Ra Tempel), Dieter Serfas (Embryo), Lutz Ulbrich (Agitation Free) and many others. The group was only active about a year and produced one self-titled LP, but by that time Eruption had served its purpose as a catalyst for the many Krautrock and Kosmische Musik bands that would follow in its wake.

Eruption's only release in 1970 combines experimentalism, electronic sounds, and lots of improvisation. Many unstructured electronic bleeps, sudden and violent bursts of guitar, and lots of droning ambience are present across the album. Though Eruption bears much resemblance to Kluster (of whom Schniztler was currently a member), the music occasionally gives way to cosmic atmospherics a la early Tangerine Dream. Schnitzler's violin is a notable presence, although used heavily for background drones as opposed to melodic accompaniment. Melodies are nowhere to be found on this album.

This album is an extremely rare gem of the krautrock movement, and was re-released on the Italian label Qbico in 2006, though it was done so in extremely limited quantities. Fans of experimental, improvisational and very trippy music will get a kick out of this album, although they will have quite a search ahead of them. Anyone who goes to the effort of hunting this album down, however, will be amply rewarded.

Eruption Krautrock

Review by Shakespeare

3 stars Eruption were a Berlin-based, krautrock group, formed by, and, arguably, orbiting around Conrad Schnitzler, former Tangerine Dream man, and, at Eruption's release, current Kluster man. Though they don't follow the usual schematics of most popular kraut bands (I claim to know few), such as Amon Düül II, Can, or Faust, where simple beats with addictive and groovy bass lines were the foundation for sonic improvisation, and tempered tape manipulation and early electronics. Eruption moves in a realm outside that. The album circles around improvised themes, in a very spastic nature. It is an extremely free-form vein of music, with subtle droning electronics, silence, sudden bursts of agitated guitar, and minimal percussion rule.

Rhythmically, it doesn't exist. Melodies: none. This is genuine mush, escaping from common music conventions to reach a higher form of expression. That, or it's just nice marijuana music. Maybe the band were searching for a plateau between experimental, artistic, expressive innovation, and pure, primitive, spastic, psychedelia. If that was their goal, I think them successful. Bands demonstrating free form music this of this caliber win a great amount of respect from me. They are simultaneously beautiful in their originality, unsoiled in their flow, and densely atmospheric: three things I cherish.

However, I recognize this brand of music isn't highly regarded objectively. The average listener will be scared witless by the haunting array of squeaks, moans, crashes, and screams. They will also be bored by the sea of sound unbound by musical law. Or, they may be unimpressed the lacking of lingering melody, complex arrangements, nonexistent musicianship. To them, I would not recommend this form of sound, however, for the open listener, searching for purely music, that makes one think and feel, that removes them from earth, that is a genuine experience, Eruption is an apt recommendation.
