Gam - Eiszeit (2005)
The second album from this German band.
The band is a trio with a lineup of trumpet, guitars, bass, percussion, drums and vocals.
This album was recorded in 1978 but only released thirty years later. Which is a bit of a shame, really.
The music is spaced out krautrock. There is a lot of electronica here and it is fair to label this as an electronic krautrock album in the Klaus Schulze vein.
Some parts of this album is rather hypnotic and in the minimalism genre. Other parts are rather more expansive where the trumpet plays a big part.
The vocals is used as instruments to create high pitch noises. This adds a lot to this album.
Fans of Klaus Schulze will really enjoy this album. It is a pure krautrock album.
I am not a big fan, I have to admit. Nevertheless, this album is still somewhere between decent and good. It is still an album well worth checking out.
