4.0 out of 5 stars Mayhem in Psychedelia 23 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you like your music perfectly pitched and over rehearsed then this album is not for you. BUT if you believe in punk, that anyone can have a go, then this is one of the originals. "Vincebus Eruptum" is a real mess, with clearly ad libbed guitar work, but that is why I love it. It is a one of those records that just gets the blood flowing "Parchment Farm" just rocks, listening to this album is like having the band in the room. Crazy loud, a must listen

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential! 26 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
I got this album a few weeks ago and must admit it's a grower, I cannot believe how heavy it is for it's age, full of feedback and bile it's no wonder these chaps influenced the almighty Pentagram later towards the early seventies. The only downer is that it's only got six tracks which is far too short, however it is well worth shelling out for as it puts a lot of modern metal and rock to shame, fans of Black Sabbath and Pentagram should give this a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars filthy ruff and pounding. 4 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this does sound different to the old stereo mix , fuller more rounded although still totally distorted. the bass drums and some vocals magically appear from the guitar chaos. however i would still want the stereo mix as i feel some of the guitar parts vanish a bit on the mono mix. and i know leigh stephens was a hopeless guitar player but its nice to fully hear him destroy his guitar amps.... own both i do. 2 quick extra points the new cd of outsideinside is also a must. and vincebus has just been reviewed in record collector mag and the reviewer said " a moderately heavy guitar tone then compared it to deep purple mk 1 " ??????????????? idiot. sloppy journalism. cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars neanderthal and all the better for it 22 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
vincebus eruptum and outside inside are without question albums from a different planet / time. sounds like they were played / produced by barbarians from the dinosaur era trying to play souped up blues rock .... total mayhem. rough as old boots. and i love it.... tho it is not for everyone. u gotta love it because they blew up the studio recording this..... cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't no cure! 25 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Remember the moment in Kubrick's 2001 when the ape's thrown bone turns into an orbiting nuke? This album represents a similar moment, but the bone turns into a Heavy Metal flying V.
SEE . . neanderthal garage rockers discover that their amps go ALL THE WAY UP TO ELEVEN!
WITNESS . . the towering monolith of Marshall stacks!
HEAR . . acid rock played by people who sound like they're actually under the influence!
Chaotic approach makes it less immediate than early Sabbath or the Stooges, but those would be the nearest reference points. The production is quite amazing, with guitar and bass sounds like you've never heard before. A significant influence on a new generation of two-fisted garage maulers like Bangtwister...

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Power Trio 30 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
Fond memories of this Lp and bought it around same time as Are you Experienced in 67. Its certainly different but more of a wild freak out than Hendrix (No 1 Fan) Big Muffs rule on this.....even Mudhoney copied that vibe, enjoy.
