Shalom Riot are from the early 80s German Christian folk rock / progressive movement similar to Eden, Credemus, Yavanna, et al. For the few minutes where the instruments are allowed to shine, the music is quite pleasant, though hardly extraordinary. Otherwise it’s youth group campfire singalongs. In German. This is a long way from classic Krautrock I’m afraid to say…by…ashratom ……… One of the best (if not THE best!!) German XIAN progrock LP!! Excellent early 70s style progressive krautrock with fantastic hammond organ, superb fuzz guitar and strong male and female vocals. The LP is a rarity from 1984, but it has the atmosphere and lots of elements of green brain, pilz or ohr releases of that (wonderful) time. Strongly RECOMMENDED, even early 70s secular progressive rock collectors!!!…by….donnersoehne ……….
