3 stars AINIGMA were a power trio (guitar, organ and drums) from Germany who played a heavy style of music with fuzzed out guitar and lots of organ leads.The are vocals in English.These guys were only between the ages of 15 and 17 when they recorded this and it seems like they released some of their anger issues in the process.

This is a garage / psyche monster not unlike NECRONOMICOM's album.The big difference is the sound quality. Unfortunately this album has some less than steller production values which is a shame because the one bonus track which is the instrumental version of the side long "Diluvium" sounds pretty amazing. Obviously this was recorded later and man it's a pleasure to listen to it. How rare is it to have a bonus track outshine the regular studio album ?

Anyway this would be a 4 star album if the studio album had that kind of sound quality.The music here can be grating and muffled which really takes away from the enjoyment of it. This is probably worth checking out if you like that noisy and aggressive style. 3 stars.
