Virus - Revelation (1971 German Rock Prog)



Boa banda alemã que mescla hard, progressivo de influências psicodélicas, bem espacial. Acho que lembra Steppenwolf em alguns momentos, mas têm um som mais pesado. Possui músicos de primeira grandeza, como é peculiar às bandas de origem germânica, interessante e estranho tributo, durante Revelation tocam um trecho dos Rolling Stones, Paint it Black instrumental, em minha opinião a música ficaria melhor sem, vinha de um solo de flauta muito bom, enfim. Vale a pena. Abaixo um review comenta do grupo ter influências do Pink Floyd e Deep Purple.

With "Revelation", the young heavy psychedelic rock group Virus produced one of best early progressive albums in Germany; indeed, it was a revelation! Their style was strongly influenced by Pink Floyd (David Gilmour) and Deep Purple (Jon Lord). The album had five long tracks. The title track included an instrumental classical adaptation of the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black". Their instrumental work was even better on the 12 minute "Endless Game". The varied album also had a more hard-rocking track named "Burning Candle". Finally, "Nur Noch Zwei Lichtiahre" guided the listener into deep space, much like a mellow and matured "Interstellar Overdrive". The album was recorded in Star Studios, Hamburg and produced by none other than Konrad Plank. For "Thoughts" (1971), both Virus' sound and the band itself had changed considerably. Only Krahe and Rieke were left from the original group. Bernd Hohmann h

ad left for Weed. The new members were: Axel Nieling (drums), Jurgen Schafer (bass, vocals), Bernd Rosner (guitar) and Werner Vogt (bass, guitar, vocals). Gone were the psychedelic space-rock and long instrumental workouts. Virus now played a more mainstream, rough and heavy blues-rock, not at all bad, but clearly inferior to their debut. They also contributed to the great Pilz album, "Heavy Christmas" (1971), before vanishing from the scene.
