Abr 19 2009, 21h29 por LlorenzaBlue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum
I've never taken the trouble to listen to heavy metal music, but I have a sneaking suspicion it's not really something for me. But we will just see about that when heavy metal shows up in the list... For now, I'll have to be satisfied with Blue Cheer's debut album 'Vincebus Eruptum', known as one of the pioneers of heavy metal.
Is this album that heavy? No.
Is it heavier than what we have heard already in this list? Yes. (Although The Monks sometimes came close)
My sneaky suspicion about heavy music is not really confirmed with this album because it is great! It doesn't sound perfect, but it sounds exciting. The band is clearly having fun, and that makes this album a serious rush from beginning to end.
The album starts with a cover of Summertime Blues which is fantastic: a perfect combination of melody and some heavier drum and guitar work (and it has a great intro!). The same is true for Rock Me Baby that starts off like the Otis Redding version (with slightly more pronounced drums)…

Out 11 2007, 15h00 por BloodyludiIn the late 60s and early 70s there where a lot more Bands than Black Sabbath which may be as crucial as them. In this journal I want name some songs and albums of other early Metal Bands.
Years 1968 - 1970:
(1968) Blue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum: A heavy played psychedelic rock album which includes a cover of Summertime Blues.
(1969) Coven - Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls: Musically psychedelic or pop-rock too, but lyrically very important. The album inculudes a 13 minute long Satanic Mass. Maybe very influental for Black Sabbath. (the frist track Is named Black Sabbath and one member's name is Oz Osborne)
(1970) Lucifer's Friend - Lucifer's Friend: The first real Heavy Metal album for me, great lyrics and many riffs. A good example is Ride in the Sky
(1970) Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath, Paranoid: The popular early doom metal band.
(1970) Black Widow - Sacrifice: Another occult Progressive Rock band, best known for their satanic rituals in live shows and the track Come to the Sabbath

Ago 28 2006, 16h30 por emergingsynergyI guess I will stay with the theme for a while, i.e., the bands I heard at The 1968 Pop Festival, at Gulfstream Park near Miami, Florida. This was a two-day affair, but the second day was, for the most part, rained out. Blue Cheer appeared on the afternoon of May 18.
I still have a poster from the event, that I have saved since getting it free at the door. It has a psychedelic picture of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, with, embedded in Jimi's hair, the words "a Joint Production" . The only other words on the poster, other than the dates, were, "The 1968 Pop Festival. The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Gulfstream Park." I think I still have my ticket stub somewhere, too; or maybe a whole ticket because they gave some out as "rain checks" during the second day.
I was 16 years old at the time, in high school in Ft. Lauderdale. I attended both days .
One of the highlights of the festival was a daytime performance by Blue Cheer. …
