Flower Travellin' Band - Satori (1971)

When everybody in the west were dazed by the sounds of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and so, in the east they were capable of rebuild this sounds and going further
A series of bands heading by The Flower Travellin' Band were mixing japanese culture, psychedelia and heavy rock with a layer of mystery, angst and poetry...
This record has been a cult piece for many years, is the second of this band, they began covering their heroes in a first recording and on this everything learned is reflected.
Satori is structured in suites, above all i would sugest for first bite Satori 2nd, a song which would be the best thriller soundtrack, wich reflects how japan understood Black Sabbath. In sons as third suite japanese culture and music is very present, not making the songs boring but giving them a psychedelic style very original and enjoyable.
