ZIOR : EVERY INCH A MAN (UK'72)
Heavy Progressive Psychedelic Rock
Zior's 1971 debut album got immediate attention when it was released because the band used the same artist that Black Sabbath had used on their first album (an artist called Keef).Their first album was a knockout of fantastic heavy rock (Originally released on Nepentha records). Zior was a 4 piece band but,on both albums,the 4th member is missing in the photos... Weird!The band then switched to Intercord for the release of 1972's masterpiece Every Inch A Man." This album,mainly recorded in 1971,contains the solid heavy rock - with fine lead guitar - that the band have become known for.On Certain songs Zior used organs,harps & flutes making a variety of progressive/psychedelic which become really noticeable on the 6 minute epic 'Angel of the Highway'.Well known for their interest in black magic and the occult,their wild live performances helped them grow a strong fans base,especially in Germany where this second album was originally released.
