Grasland, Germany

Grasland - Echt Null! 1981 Torpedo.

Well, after 3 days of some pretty exciting stuff, we're back to the more mundane rarities. This was another one out of Heavyrock's collection, that I'd been looking for a copy for some time. And while I'm not assigning it a priority, I thought it was good enough for a separate entry.

I was a bit surprised at the heaviness of the first track, almost a proto metal sound permeates. There are other times further in where the guitar is grungier than you would expect. Overall, I'd say it's like a harder edged Rousseau, around the time of "Retreat" (but minus the flute), mixed with some straightforward rock with German vocals. This latter element made me think of late 70s Novalis. Overall a pretty decent album, and worth seeking for a couple of listens.

Priority: none
