The album "Mainhorse" opens with (how original) the song "Introduction": fluent 'heavy progressive' with floods of Hammond organ and fiery electric guitarplay, the sound has echoes from ATOMIC ROOSTER, THE NICE and early DEEP PURPLE. The following "Passing Years" is a slow, bluesy like song with mellow organ and a bit melancholic vocals.

For years I mentioned Mainhorse and all I get was a blank expression, even if they knew who Patrick Moraz was, many seem to get the impression Refugee was the first band he recorded with. Which isn't true, as Mainhorse released a self-entitled album in 1971 on Polydor. This album is some really high-energy progressive rock, showing Patrick Moraz's keyboard skills right from the get-go.
