    SMAK was formed 1971 in Kragujevac, the present Serbia and Montenegro, by guitar virtuoso Radomir MIHAJLOVIC nicknamed "Tocak" (the Wheel). The first stable line-up was assembled in late 1974 including Slobodan Stojanovic (drums), Zoran Milanovic (bass), Boris Arandjelovic (vocals) and Lazar RISTOVSKI (keyboards). SMAK was celebrated for Tocak's virtuosity in guitar playing, modelled on J. Hendrix and J. Page style, and for interesting fusion of hard rock, prog rock, jazz rock with strong blues backing, with Arandjelovic's falsetto vocal often used as an instrument rather than singing.
    This debut has some very heavy guitars, especially the opening song. Way ahead of it's time!!! And the powerful vocals instantly make Smak stand-out. A definite must-have. Track 4 has what I believe may be the first true HEAVY METAL riff, well, next to Black Sabbath. It's the 3rd riff in after the twin guitar melody.....sounds like something written in 1983 or 1984 by Metallica or Slayer. That particular song definitely has proto-metal written all over parts of it. Because there is so much variety on this album, it was hard to pick one category, so I put it in Prog Rock because that's the over-all essence even if there are some proto-metal elements present. Enjoy.
