German Oak - German Oak (1972)

Originally released in 1972, it must be noted for peculiar reasons the added bonus tracks on this reissue, “Swastika Rising”, “The Third Reich” and “Shadows Of War” precede the first issue material of “Raid Over Düsseldorf” and “1945 - Out of the Ashes” to name a couple. The tagged-on additions naturally compliment, however – deviating not from the WWII themed funk centered lengthy 15+ minutes acid jams. Though its intrigue lies not only in its underground appeal – quite literally recorded in an air-raid bunker, but the rather overbearing ferociousness of its fuzzed out proto-industrial sound, impressing by either intention or accident a relic amidst its own potent imagery.
