3 stars Maybe one can say that NECRONOMICON belongs to those bands who have survived the glorious 1970s Krautrock era. They had released their highly appraised album 'Tips Zum Selbstmord' in 1972, but dissolved two years later, or at least they went on a very long hiatus, somebody may throw in. But then founding members Walter Sturm and Norbert Breuer, as well as drummer Harald Bernhard came together again in 2010, aiming to celebrate a little renaissance. This resulted in a reunion concert two years later, which also was the starting shot for the release of the new album 'Haifische'. Apart from the better sound quality this does not significantly differ to their debut. What they deliver here is sorta generous mix of music styles once again.

Due to a distinct presence of the organ there is a proper symphonic touch to state, but psychedelic, folk, as well as blues elements are incorporated too. The strong German twist comes from the lyrics of course, time-sensitive, they are up to date for sure. Track titles are in native language too, hence this is authentic NECRONOMICON stuff, yeah! You still can file this under the Krautrock term. Anyway, the most important aspect, they certainly are providing rather pure progressive rock music. Complex compositions, just considering the multi-varianted Wiegenlied, which is my album highlight. And fine instrumental impact here, this is definitely appealing. 3.5 stars.
