Necronomicon - Tips Zum Selbstmord (expanded)

SKU 18-GOD 094
Famous for their eponymous album which is sought-after by collectors World-wide, Necronomicon came from Aachen, a city near the borders with the Netherlands and Belgium. They adapted the name Necronomicon from an H.P. Lovecraft novel and built up a spectacular live repertoire during 1971. It featured complex heavy progressive song arrangements with awkward German lyrics that dealt with ecological problems, the threat of a nuclear disaster, the end of mankind and pure despair. Necronomicon proved themselves to be a band with the same seriousness and sense of large scale works as the most extreme Italian bands. With the economic support of a friend, Necronomicon set off to a semi-professional studio in the Netherlands to record (in March and April 1972) what has become the ultimate collector's item for purveyors of German progressive rock: Tips Zum Selbstmord... Few would deny that this is one of the best and most unique German records of the early seventies. There were biting guitar leads throughout, shimmering, painful vocals, a garage organ trying to battle with Bach, sudden shifts of tempos and moods, including passages of more primitive heavy garage rock. It was released in a limited edition of 500 copies and is probably THE most hunted German record. This includes the usual HUGE Garden of Delights booklet and four bonus tracks.
