This shouldn't be confused with the 80s symphonic (and quite a good one at that) outfit of the same name. This particular Elohim recorded a concept album dealing with esotericism. The sound is very uncommon, almost a cross between early zeuhl-rock and the soundtrack for the "Hair" musical! A good choice for fans of the unusual, but this is not entirely successful musically!
