Doomsday

Gravestone, a brilliant German hard rock outfit buried by time. Doomsday was the group's first outing, and though it was released in 1979, it sounds like it could have been made in 1972. The album is quite melancholic with oodles of delicate guitar playing and warm vocals that are reminiscent of another Cosmic Hearse dark psych fave, The Wicked Lady. Another lost treasure chest of moody proto-doom for you, my beloved readers. Enjoy.

Never Heard of these guys either. I've been listening to Welcome to my Nightmare a lot lately. A nice change.

I know that some member went on to start the German metal band Tyrant, and later went on to play in U.D.O.

Thanks, Aesop. I had the same feeling about this album that I did about the Pagan Alter stuff that you posted a few months back. I laid down some cash money for PA, and I will if I ever see this. \m/

I think the link for this is dead? The only thing it lets you download is a .zip for a firefox page. Any ideas?...

Aesop said...
