Iron Butterfly - Metamorphosis (1970)
The fourth album from this US band.
Iron Butterfly was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, organ and vocals.
The band also had help from two extra musicians who provided sitar and guitars.
The band became a big name band with their In A Gadda Da Vida multi million selling album. They were a big band in 1970 too. At least among US bands.
Their music was always pretty hard rocking with as lot of psych and blues rock.
This thirty-six minutes long album is no exception from this rule.
We get a good dash of hard rock here with some pretty evident blues and psych rock influences. There are also some progressive rock influences here.
The music is hard rocking with powerful vocals, guitars and drums. But there is also some melodies and harmonies here. Enough to make this an interesting album.
The end result is a good album which should satisfy everyone into hard 1970s rock. Fans of prog rock should also check out this album. It comes recommended.
