German Oak - Nibelungelied (1972-1976)
"The dark German collective back with completely catchy kraut-improvisations. All tracks deliver menacing heavy, fuzzy psychedelic moments that merit a serious listening. After their amazing and most popular effort, "Nibelungenlied" stresses the free-sonic-destruction dimension of their music. The sound is always dominated by screaming / electric bluesy guitar parts, sound experiments and macabre keyboards effects. "The heroic deeds of Siegfried" is a dark and minimalist, melancholic composition with a subtle "medieval" flavour. The savage percussion announces a delicate, simplistic guitar sequence in a moody tone. "Nibelungenlied I" is an agressive, dynamic guitar orientated composition, featuring really hypnotic, rocking sequences; all in improvisation with a repetitive bass line and some vicious guitar solos. "Gunter & Brunhild", "Hagen von Tronje" & "Siegfried's death" are bluesy-kraut jams with wha wha effects and strangely doomy, sinister atmospheres. Heavy, complex, weird & cool! A "poisoning" masterpiece. This album only has to be avoided by those who can't support an extremely poor, imperfect sound production" (Philippe

Thanks for yet another Kraut delight (long time no see!)
I remember downloading their other album from your site, when you still posted mp3's. I'm desperately looking for an upgrade since then (well, I found one, but alas, without bonus tracks). I'll be happy if you can post that, too...

keep up te good work.

These German Oak albums you share are lo-fi masterpieces of fuzzed-out paranoid riffing that is matched by few. Thanks much, GC, you are a don!
