some bio:
a family organised band from Münich completed with two other members.Their name comes from the famous persian religious leader.Their music has a romantic character with the late romantic symphonic elements wrapped a nice mixture of new wave ,jazz and rock(for example "Ab Libitum" and "Psychopoly") .Other songs (for example "Massa,Massa" and "Simsalabim")
are clear N.D.W loaded with synths.
The texts play a significant roll in their art.They are about the era (paralelism between the time we live and history) and personal feelings. More about them in german language :

WOW, what a great blog!!!!!! I found you this morning, and i already put you in my favorite sites!!!!!!

Just 2 requests: it is possible to repost the first part of the 16 bit album and The Laura Braningan's greatest hits? Both are redirceted to 404 error page, it's so frustrating!!!

On my (long) way to find Zara-Thustra music on the net I landed on your blog ... but I was to late: the download link was already dead ...

Would it be possible to activate the "Zara-Thustra Eiskalt" link? Do you remember? - It was the ""

or ...

... on the other hand, could you be so kind to send the zip directly - (if possible) to my email:

this would be very nice!

Thanks for reposting the Zara-Thustra compilation, three years on and the RS link is still 'live'!

Despite been into German kosmische/NDW for many years, there are still so many wonderful bands left to discover and having just heard the 'Massa Massa' track and been blown away by it, especially the brilliant tribal drumming at the start(by someone called 'Said Benimas' who i can find no other reference to sadly)...I am keeping my fingers crossed their other tracks are just as interesting and a compilation is definitely the way to go!

Seems a while since I visited so I am hoping all is well with you Salty!
