Risk was german band originally known as Faithful Breath, which was formed as early as 1967 – playing Progressive rock, Hard Rock, earlier on their career, and later on moving into more traditional heavy metal fields with quite typical german sound.

Pack Up the Plantation does do that, even if it isn't quite the barnburner it should have been.
