Armaggedon - Armaggedon (1970)

This band is from Germany.This is pretty standard hard rock. The guitar tone sounds really cool on tracks like "Round", but, overall, it just doesn't stand out from any other hard rock band. But their Spooky Tooth cover is absolutely amazing. It's rare to see a cover of a really good song improve so much upon the original. It's heavy as hell, and their improvement on the last three notes of the original main riff make it sound so much better (instead of ending with the same note three times, they play an ascending set of notes ending with a bad ass low note.). It's the difference between "damn that's a good riff" and an ear orgasm.

Track Listing...
03.oh man
04.rice pudding
05.people talking
