(Long Hair LHC00125, 1971/2012, CD)

by Mike McLatchey, Published 1996-03-01

4 Times Sound Razing Cover art

Silberbart were a German trio in the early Guru Guru vein, a bass-drums-guitar combination with an eye for the psychedelic. If you're familiar with Guru Guru albums such as Hinten or Känguru then you know what to expect here. Titles like "God" imply there was a lot of microdot in the studio around recording time, and with all the effects and wild guitar you have an album that will appeal to those more into Hendrix and psych than progressive rock. As with Guru Guru there's a lot of heaviness and general all-around weirdness that coupled with the long tracks make for a spaced-out feel. Recommended to the Krautrock aficionado.
