Gravestone ‎– Doomsday

Gravestone ‎– Doomsday
Release date:1979
Genre: Krautrock

Formed as a group of 15 year old school friends in 1975, and first existing under the names 'Heizkörper' and then 'Oregon'. 'Gravestone' were formed proper in late-1976. They came from the town of Illertissen (a good few miles south of Ulm) and tried to create a mixture of hard-rock and spacey styles.
For many years we'd known of 'Gravestone' as a heavy metal band of the mid-1980's, so it was a surprise to learn of their more progressive roots.
Their debut album 'Doomsday' was a largely instrumental collection, with only two songs "Doomsday" opening the album in a Harlis/Jane/Epitaph type vein, and "Stone Age" a much more typical Teutonic heavy prog ballad. The instrumentals, which are of varying recording quality, all seem to be extracts or condensed reworks of longer jams.
