[Machine Translation] Globuschnitt" was formed in 1970 with Elok (dr.), who is now active as a producer/engineer, as the core of the band. The band's six albums from their debut in 1972 to 1979 are all reissued in 2022 with the latest remastering and the world's first paper-jacketed CD! This is the debut album released in 1972, consisting of two suites, "Song of Bliss" and "Solar Mythology", both over 10 minutes long. Symbolized by the album cover and the organ that still retains its psychedelic garb, the album presents a dark and gloomy sound world that is distinctly different from their later works. On the other hand, it is one of the representative works that shows the musicality and style inherited from the works in the 70's, such as theatrical and dramatic songs and compositions, and the tendency toward large-scale productions. Bonus live tracks from 1971 and 1975 are included. The world's first paper-jacketed CD release, digitally remastered in 2022, reproducing the original recordings as much as possible.

Description in Japanese

冥府宮からの脱出 / グローブシュニット

現在はプロデューサー/エンジニアとして活躍するエロック(dr.)を中心に'70年結成、80年代末期に解散するも2000年代後期に復活した70年代ジャーマン・シンフォニック・ロックを代表するバンド「グローブシュニット」の独ブレインより'72年デビュー作から'79年作までの6作品が一挙2022年最新リマスター/世界初紙ジャケット仕様CDで復刻! 本作は、ともに10分を超える「至福の歌」「太陽神話」の2つの組曲で構成された、1972年発表のデビュー作。アルバム・ジャケットやサイケデリアの衣鉢を残すオルガンに象徴される、以降の作品とは一線を画すダークで陰鬱な音世界を披露。一方でシアトリカルでドラマティックな楽曲・構成や大作志向等、70年代期作品群に継承される音楽性・スタイルもうかがえる代表作の1つです。ボーナスに71年/75年のライヴトラックを収録。オリジナルレコードを可能な限り再現した世界初紙ジャケットCD化、2022年デジタルリマスター。

      Hysterical laughter, simulated machine gun fire, a flute & acoustic guitar piece, passages from the bible read in a deep German voice over stormy soundscapes, a rock symphony in 5 movements, effects and synthesizers galore! How much more progressive rock can you get? And if you've ever seen this amazing German band live (like this reviewer did in 1978) you'll never forget them. With everything from pyrotechnics, painted faces and huge pteradactyl like birds Grobschnitt made other contemporary stage shows look like elementary school Christmas plays. A live version of Die Sinfonie is available on the re-mastered CD along with a history of this unusual musical troupe where each member acquired his own stage identity.The music and themes here, although in the vein of the prog rock stylings of the day, were much more dreamy and drew from psychedelic influences rather than classical ones like many British groups.This classic debut album from one of the most ecclectic German bands to emerge from the seventies is an essential for anyone interested in exploring the developments which were taking place in rock music in continental Europe in the early 1970's.

      this is about my favorite record by GROBSHNITT!!!! this is a powerful symphonic but very early 70s prog album, very european sounding with some very overlooked guitar work that is amazing!!!!!! this was the outfits first album back in 1972!!!! the beautiful mini lp replication is almost perfect as per the original BRAIN RECORDS german pressing from 50 years ago.......... fans of krautrock as well as late 60s early 70s european obscure and hard rock WILL LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! long time reissue coming here.
