Cosmos Factory - An Old Castle of Transylvania CD

SKU 23-Erebus 0009
Famous and rare on vinyl 1973 Japanese psych/hard rock release.

"A really beautiful and very atmospheric hard rock album. The melodies are strong, carried mostly by keyboards. The bass is quite loud and up-front. The vocalist sings sometimes passionately, sometimes subtly, but always in Japanese. I really liked this album because here the approach to hard rock is not of the straightforward kind. The tempos are mostly slower, there are many beautiful instrumental breaks, lots and lots of awesomely played keyboards. The album really ends up sounding like an entirety and not simply a collection of songs. The mood achieved is also intriguing - melancholic, occasionally brooding. This may sound a little like what Black Sabbath have achieved, but Cosmos Factory is avoiding Iommy's compactly packed doomy riff strategy. Here we have a more sprawling and atmospheric sound. Really, an awesome album! Cannot recommend it enough to fans ot 70s psych and hard rock."
