Staff review by

Classic Rock/Hard Rock.

Year: 1968

"Iron Butterfly" is one of the precursors to today's Hard Rock/Metal, they released their debut, "Heavy", in January 1968 and it sold gold immediately. And the single "Unconscious Power" became, surprisingly, a big hit.
After the release of the debut, all the members except the Keyboard player and singer Doug Ingle and the drummer Ron Bushy leaved the band. They were replaced and in June 1968 did the successor "In-a-Gadda-da-Vida" (a misspell of "In the Garden of Eden") got released.

Rating: 8 A little bit surprised to find this one in here but now that I think of it, this was a part of the Heavier Acid/Psychadelic forms of Rock that was happening in the late 60's . It's a trippy piece of music and a Classic album in Rock history
