4 UK guys recorded this album in Belgium and only released in Italy. Great stoned trippy organ based psychedelic, strong flute, great musicianship.
Malachi was an excellent band of Acid Rock with incorporation of Latin instruments (congas, bongos, timbales) and progressive basis. In 1971 he released his first plate called Malachi, which had a very particular sound (the guitar does not exist), loaded with Latin elements and changes of very funky rhythms.
The use of keyboard excels of the other instruments managing to become key point of the album. An interesting album with a completely European Line-Up (England-Belgium-Italy) but with a strong Latin influence that makes it exotic and very entertaining...
A very rhythmic with folk and psychedelic touches album, his first song Return of a Stranger with great pace and psychedelia that combine well, their other issues such as Clog Clog 2¨unos totally 1 and rhythmic themes and solos only part of the congas, if they heard this serious group paresido something Santana in his first records, for those who like music with a lot of rhythm and psychedelia is recommended this record.
