Their second album was their first for the famous Charisma label, VdGG being the label’s very first band signing. Magma – Magma (1970). In Germany progressive rock mutated into Krautrock. The sound in their early years was more progressive, but by their fourth album, Autobahn, their developing experimentation with electronica was in full flight. Hawkwind – Warrior On The Edge Of Time (1975). A prog rock band with strong pop sensibilities to boot, It Bites were an unlikely looking and sounding proposition. This second album manages to mix hugely commercial tracks like Midnight and Kiss Like Judas with epics like Old Man And The Angel and the astonishing 15-minute title track without seeming contrived.
This album, with shorter songs than their previous album, contains a tribal vibe throughout but also has its delicate moments. And the answer is, they sound better than ever. The album still retains some of the screaming and intensity of their previous work, but here they more forward without any apologies and produce a mesmerizing piece of work with peaks and valleys of emotion and styles.
