Atomic Rooster - Death Walks Behind You (1970)

The second album from this British band.

The band was a trio with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, organ, keyboards and vocals.

This is their second album and the first after the departure of Carl Palmer, who left to become one third of ELP.

The band still continues down the hard blues and rock path. A path well trodden by many other bands.

There is also a lot of symphonic prog in their music.

The music is pretty to very hard during these forty-minutes.

It is also pretty much based on great details. The music is full of small, intricate details. 

The vocals are also good and both the opening track and the final track is pretty special.

This is therefore a good album from a pretty special band. A band who deserves their status as a great band. A status underpinned by this album.
