I've just discovered a german masterpiece: "Electric silence"  (1975) by DZIAN

Do you know this band and the two other albums they made?

It's somewhere between :

Amon dll, Between, Agitation free, Popol vuh etc..  and the guitar is sometimes close to Hedon

Yes, they made 3 albums; Electric silence is the 3rd(1974 not 1975).

1st is the s.t. album released in 1972,

2nd was Time Machine released in 1973.

Their sound is very similar also to Embryo and King Crimson.

You put the hand on a very excellent kraut/ jazz band, Oliverstoned. For me 'Electric Silence' is their masterpiece, more atmospheric, ethnic and less jazzy than the two others. 'Time Machine' is brilliant to...however their first is more basic.

Hello philippe,

Thanks for the info!

Yes "Electric silence" is a real masterpiece and totally unknow, even more than bands like Agitation free!

I supposed the second must be closer to "Embryo"

I can't really confirm that 'Dzyan' second album is similar to Some 'Embryo'...are you talking about albums as 'Opal'?
