Epidermis were founded in Idstein, Hesse, in 1971, but they soon moved to the regional capital, Wiesbaden. They played some complex sophisticated rock music, with frequent changes of rhythm and pace, and polyphonic vocal harmonies. They were often compared with Gentle Giant, Yes, and the Canterbury scene. Their first LP, recorded in Fred Kersten's studio in June 1975, remained unreleased back then because they didn't find a label for it. Only their second album, "Genius of original force", was released (on Kerston Records in 1977).
