Popol Vuh - Letzte Tage Letzte Nächte (1976)

The eight album from this German band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, piano, percussion and vocals.
Two guest artists provided sitar and tamboura.

Renate Knaup from Amon Duul II also joined Popol Vuh in addition to her daily job in Amon Duul II. Which is a good thing...

The album is far more dynamic than most other Popol Vuh albums.

The album also sounds like a dirge at times and the themes are pretty dark and somber. Not gothic, but dark and somber.

The vocals is really full of effects although they are without any words. They are like instruments on the same line as the guitars and the piano.

The guitar solos is really both intense and good here. The sitar adds a lot to this album. It adds that little xtra which makes me listen up.

The piano is also good on this album. An album I would rate as one of their better ones.

Check out this album.
