This band might be from Germany but we get English vocals from John Lawton who is from the UK. John would go on to sing for URIAH HEEP. This album was released in 1970 the same year as BLACK SABBATH's first two albums. The cover art here is kind of creepy with the "Mob" coming to mind with those two wise-guys on the cover standing in a pool of someone else's blood. Yup these are Lucifer's freinds. Man i'd never have guessed this was a German band obviously because of John's vocals but they deserve a lot of credit for making this style of music so early on. Lots of organ in this one and it's certainly not as dark or heavy as SABBATH but these guys do rip it up. DEEP PURPLE and URIAH HEEP fans should love this stuff.
