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 upin a neat little package; it’s a raw, bursting-at-the-seamssonic attack fully capable of melting ears at a thousand paces.
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.
Phallus Dei is the first ADII album, from 1969, a standard bearer for drugged atmosphere underground rock period.
