Buried Treasure: Light Of Darkness
Riches From The Rock Underground
Light Of Darkness By Light Of Darkness, Philips, Germany, 1971. £280
UK rock band Light Of Darkness’s only album (released only in Germany) captured their blend of heavy progressive blues in all its raw glory. They might not be one of the more innovative bands of the period – and are comparable to other semi-obscure UK favourites from the period such as Writing On The Wall, Red Dirt, Stackwaddy and the much-loved Edgar Broughton Band – but this self-titled album will definitely be of interest to fans of early underground hard and heavy sounds.
