Epsilon - Epsilon Off (1974 germany, essential hard prog rock)



Epsilon was founded 1970 in Marburg, Germany, by members of Orange Peel and Nosferatu (the vocalist / guitarist Michael Winzkowski), the band Epsilon published three LPs between 1971 and 1974. Their self title can be considered as their best, a nicely varied and achieved combination between heavy blues rockin' sections and coherent progressive skills. 

Their second 'Move on' (1971) represents a more mainstream rock album with a few enjoyable moments. With the album 'Epsilon off' (1974) the band turn to a straight heavy rockin' trip.
