Product Description

AMON DUUL II-Phallus dei- freak-out psych KRAUT-new CD


Phallus dei


Amazing first album from, perhaps, the best German prog band.

Out of this world freak-out psychedelic sounds, diverse and.. strange.



Recorded in 1969 and one of the most astonishing debut albums ever made was this offering from the German masters.

Experimental space rock driven by barrages of percussion, duelling violins, lashings of acidic guitar and the bass of future Hawkwind man Dave Anderson.

Kraut rock which was often imitated but rarely bettered.


The post-psychedelic German phenomenon known as Krautrock pretty much starts here. The 1969 release PHALLUS DEI was the first album by Amon Duul II, who had split off from the more shambling, hippie-type communal outfit Amon Duul. The former had a darker, edgier spirit, and a greater sense of direction. That's not to say everything on PHALLUS DEI is tied up in a neat little package; it's a raw, bursting-at-the-seams sonic attack fully capable of melting ears at a thousand paces.
Like their Krautrock contemporaries, Amon Duul II were influenced by the psychedelic sounds of artists like Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane, but they transmuted that inspiration into something even more exploratory, open-ended, and primal. Bashing at guitars and drums like men possessed, they create a brain-frying firestorm of sound, cementing both their status as found fathers of Krautrock, and PHALLUS DEI's reputation as one of its definitive musical statements.

Editorial reviews
4 stars out of 5 -- The title track is a colossal, sky-snogging freakout with a Burundi-style percussive centrepiece.
