MYTHOS Krautrock • Germany
Mythos biography (http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=701)
MYTHOS emerged from the Berlin underground scene in 1969. Less known than others german bands and artists as AMON DUUL, Klaus SCHULZE... they also signed their debut effort for the legendary ohr label. Their first two albums "Mythos" and "Dreamlab" represent Krautrock at its finest. The general mood of the band during that period was orientated to free space/psychedelic music with a lot of electric organs and keyboard parts. Their self title album includes acoustic and oriental elements as flute, sitar... which add a mystical flavor to the music. The following albums will be very far from the space, peaceful and strange music developped in the two first albums. The releases of "Concrete City" and "Strange Guys" show a new musical direction taken by the band, they turned to something more mainstream, synth, with numerous short songs. Nevertheless their two first are an absolute must for prog completists and all fans of Krautrock.
