Biography

There are multiple artists named Buffalo:
1) A heavy metal band from Australia
2) A heavy stoner metal band from Argentina
3) A heavy metal/NWOBHM band from England.
4) A heavy alternative rock band from Logan, Utah, USA.

1) Buffalo are a proto-heavy metal band formed in Sydney, Australia in 1970, although initially performing under the name Head (changed the following year, due to its sexual innuendo and unmarketablity). The original line up was unconventional for a rock band, featuring two lead vocalist (Dave Tice and Alan Milano) and filled out by John Baxter (guitar), Peter Wells (bass) and Paul Balbi (drums), although their difinitive line up (1973-1975) was more conventional with Tice, Baxter and Wells with the addition of Jimmy Economou on drums.

Although largely unrecognised within the Australian music scene, they were possibly Australia’s first heavy metal band, pre-dating other pioneering Australian hard rock and heavy metal acts - notably Coloured Balls, AC/DC, The Angels (Australian) and Rose Tattoo, of which Wells was also a founding member. Like many pioneering heavy metal acts, Buffalo incorporated strong influences of blues-rock, psychedelia and progressive rock - the latter genre also frequently used by many critics and fans to label the band’s style.

    The Australian band is really the only one that really matters here, Volcanic Rock should be in top 10 of rock albums AT LEAST.

    Volcanic Rock to jeden z najlepszych rockowych albumów jakie dotychczas przesłuchałem. A było ich trochę. Zdecydowanie największe wrażenie robi miażdżący jądra wokal. Coś wspaniałego!
