Necronomicon

1) Necronomicon were formed in 1971 in Aachen, the Western part of Germany near the Belgium and Netherlands border. With an album title (Tips zum Selbtsmord) that means "How to Commit Suicide," Necronomicon's one album, from 1972, featured bleak progressive garage rock with long instrumental passages. With wailing acid guitar solos, dark organ swirls, and angst-ridden singing in German, Necronomicon has created a dark and powerful vision that blends psychedelic and progressive music with a proto-punk garage band sensibility.

The River

It started in 1999. The dust in the room began to dance & bask in the amber glow from the valves as the amps began to rumble into life. Adding the battery gave life to the monolith whilst the soothing tones of the voice healed the wounds from the bludgeon. Light from the blocked out windows cast shadows across the walls, the haze only adding to the core of the sound as the aural mantra continued. The constant tapping of the rain outside only added to the rhythm & flow...
