Silberbart - 4 Times Sound Razing (1971 germany, solid heavy prog underground power acid drenched, 2012 remaster)

Silberbart was an underground heavy progressive power trio from Hamburg. The album contained just four songs: 'Chub Chub Cherry' (a short heavy rock song like a freaky Cream), 'Brain Brain' (16 minutes of acid nightmares, continuously shifting tempo in amphetamine-driven mayhem), 'God' (a much more melodic attempt with powerful guitar arrangement, sounding like Black Sabbath meet Hendrix with a collective paranoia) and 'Head Tear Of The Drunken Sun' (finished at all with 12 minutes of hazardous power trio pyrotechnics). 

This is an extreme album in many ways: the raw power, the cranky vocals, the restless arrangements, not forgetting the ugly silver gnome on the front sleeve. For the first time the history of Silberbart is told by band leader Hajo Teschner and there are many rare photos of the group.
