4 stars This is a krautrock set recorded in 1978 but then left shelved until its eventual rediscovery decades later. It's a shame it didn't come out when it was originally recorded, because the spooky, chilly atmosphere of the piece is awfully in keeping with the dark post-punk and proto-goth material that was making the rounds at the time, and as a result Eiszeit could have had a shot at gaining traction among fans of the more motorik, krautrock-influenced end of Public Image Limited's work. As it stands, it's a lost gem which has a really unique atmosphere that makes it stand apart from much electronic-oriented krautrock - less tripped-out and spacey, more cold and paranoid and fearful.
