PORTUGUÊS:
Sendo uma de tantas bandas que sumiram após lançarem somente um álbum, o Weed surgiu como uma grande surpresa na época, porque havia sido formada por Reinhold Spiegelfeld, Bernd Hohmann e Werner Monka, todos recém-saídos do Virus após ter gravado o álbum Revelation e a diferença entre o tempo de gravação de ambos os álbuns é de praticamente apenas 2 meses, contemplando duas linhas musicais completamente diferentes. E apesar de não ter sido devidamente creditado, Ken Hensley do Uriah Heep é um convidado que aparece como integrante principal, assumindo também os vocais. O Weed, de qualquer forma, soava muito mais como uma banda britânica de hard rock, com fortes influências do blues e elementos do progressivo, do que uma banda alemã. Eles não duraram mais do que um ano juntos, mas deixaram um álbum interessante.


ENGLISH:
As being one of uncountable bands that faded away after releasing only one album, Weed was formed as a great surprise on its time, once because their members Reinhold Spiegelfeld, Bernd Hohmann and Werner Monka were recent-departed from Virus after recording Revelation album and the recording sessions periods difference of both albums is only practically 2 months, relying on a completely different musical tide. And despite of not being properly credited, Ken Hensley of Uriah Heep was a guest featured seeming like the band's frontman, also taking control of lead vocals. Weed othewise did sound much more like a British strongly blues-driven hard rock band with progressive elements than a German band. They didn't last for over a year together, but left as legacy an interesting album.
