Not to be confused with Black Star Riders, despite intermittent Thin Lizzy leads, these Germans simply forge the most high-density space-metal alloy since turn-of-'90s Swiss heroes Bloodstar. Now, like then, the secret is a massive bottom machined like NASA jungle drums. Think maybe early Killing Joke crossed with Sabbath-weight Hawkwind via Leather Nun sleaze, levee-breaking Zeppelin drums, coming-undone Duran melodies and pretty-in-pink Psychedelic Furs voicings -- often slipping into an astronomical loneliness, gruffest in "Major Tom Waits."
