Power of the Wall.
Another ham fisted hard-edged rocker from 1969. Scottish band Writing On The Wall's lone album "Power of the Pict's" sort of perfectly defines the sound that many bands where starting to stumble into. Not entirely psych, not entirely out of control, and definitely not just blues rehash stuff. Writing On The Wall has the great ability to balance contemporary bands of the era like Procol Harem, The Doors, and the wildness of Aurthur Brown and place it directly into your pipe. Song titles like "Bogeyman", "Lucifer Corpus", and "Aries" do not disappoint. Cover is pretty fucking good too.
