HARD/ PROG/ KRAUTROCK - VARIOUS - Heavy Christmas - 1971


Postagem especial de Natal, a compilação Heavy Christmas foi lançada em 1971 pela Pilz e relançada em CD e vinil em 1997. É composto por 11 faixas, tocadas por 7 pérolas alemãs da época, a maioria lançou apenas um álbum, apenas Virus e Flute & Voice chegaram à dois LPs. Esse também é o único registro da banda Libido.
As músicas trazem uma variedade grande de estilos, passando pelo krautrock, progressivo, hard, folk e psicodelia, mas com temas natalinos e letras em inglês. Saxofone, órgão, guitarra wah-wah, flautas se revezam no instrumental, dando momentos viajantes/ experimentais e outros de simples e direto rock setentista, com destaque para as músicas de Virus e Libido.
Apesar de um pouco inconsistente, excelentes momentos do rock alemão são ouvidos aqui, pérola natalina recomendada!

One of the odder relics of the Krautrock heyday of the early '70s, Heavy Christmas found itself reissued in 1997 as part of the overall revival of the said sound. Originally released in 1971, it featured both new and traditional Christmas songs interpreted by seven different acts, most of whom contribute two tracks each. None of the featured acts are among the upper tier of Krautrock acts -- and it would have been quite something to hear the likes of Can, Kraftwerk, and Guru Guru do Christmas songs! -- but the end results have their high points. If any bands would be points of inspiration, Amon Duul II and Faust would probably be them; most of the acts here have the nutty playfulness of the first, touched here and there by the sheer cut-up chaos of the second. Compared to both, though, groups like Libido and Virus are much more straightforward. Libido itself gets in two of the representative songs: "Evolution," starting with a weird, ragged chorus and getting in some heavy drum slams and crazed guitar wah-wah action; and the rockin' good times of "Come on Everybody," apparently the album's single. Virus has its own fine winner, "X-Mas Submarine," with a stuttering keyboard line and fantastic guitar soloing its high points. Joy Unlimited's contribution is a doozy, a lengthy number called "All Heaven and Earth Are Silent" which sounds like a mix of stoner folk, pomp-rock instrumentals, and a strung-out Up With People. In perhaps the most entertaining trip-out, Dies Irae rips through an instrumental version of "Silent Night" with a snarling electric guitar taking the totally unlikely lead, alternating between full propulsion and calmer moments. Solo act Marcel delivers "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" with a nicely airy vocal, while his backing musicians crank the amps and add violin to boot.
