Blue Oyster Cult
Friday, March 15, 2019
For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-¬-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work.
Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very
few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical
acclaim as well as commercial success.
The band is often cited as
a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's
countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
the release of BÖC's self--titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised
for its catchy--yet--heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative,
terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC's canon
includes three stone--cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos
long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting "(Don't Fear) The
Reaper" from 1976's Agents of Fortune, the pummeling "Godzilla"
from 1977's Spectres and the hypnotically melodic "Burnin' for You"
from1981's Fire of Unknown Origin. Other notable BÖC songs include "Cities
on Flame with Rock and Roll," "Then Came the Last Days of May,"
"I Love the Night," "In Thee,""Veteran of the Psychic
Wars," "Dominance and Submission," "Astronomy,"
"Black Blade" and "Shooting Shark."
