Troya - Point Of Eruption (1976)
"Troya is a quite obscure symphonic krautrock inspired German band that was formed in 1972 in Werne an der Lippe by Elmar Wegmann, Klaus Pannewig, Wilhelm Weischer. The band was first called Drastic. They changed the name and the line up to record symphonic psychedelic influenced music based principally on electric guitar, mellotron and vocals. The band disbanded during the end of the 1970s.

Influenced by classical and baroque music, in 1976 they released their unique self-financed album; Point of Eruption, with very little means. The disc has a very limited number of copies. It features enchanting melancholic music with long instrumental passages, mainly guitar and organ.

Troya had a lot of potential and talent but did not record in the best of conditions. It's a pity that the band released only one album. Very recommended to Krautrock, Space Rock and Symphonic progressive listeners, especially Pink Floyd and Eloy fans!" (

Hi anonymous - You're welcome.

Hi anonymous - This is a rip from a CD that I own, using EAC to get a single .wav image, then decoding to .flac using Flac Frontend
