3 stars The music on this album was played by very young guys, aged between 15-17 years only. Considering that fact, I admit admiring their maturity in composing and musical approach. The youngness can possibly be heard from the singer's voice and simplicity of the arrangements, but they guys played their stuff quite well and songs have lots of bluesy improvisational parts for free jamming. The overall sound is dark and moody, with lots of raw sounding organs and guitar dominating the textures, bass and drums assaulting the anxious aural visions.

My favorite tracks are the minor ballad "All Things are Fading", and the bonus track "Thunderstorm", which is an aggressive instrumental outtake from their rehearsal room. The opening track "Prejudice" is also quite powerful trashy tune, then on the longer title track maybe the musicians venture a bit too far to the vast opens of improvisational oceans for keep the blow interesting. I got myself a have vinyl reissue from Little Wing of the album, and it has a neat alternative cover by the Irish painter Francis Danby. I would recommend this album to vinyl collectors and to all those, who are interested in dark psychedelic heavy music and German underground acts.
