Description

From back cover: “Written on the road in the midst of their first full-scale touring, Tyranny and Mutation cemented Blue Öyster Cult ’s growing reputation as “The American Black Sabbath.” Though they were hardly as blunt as their overseas peers, “precious is not a word you would use for our image at this time,” says vocalist Eric Bloom. Despite the crunch of their metal leanings, the group also layered folk-rock harmonies and instrumental virtuosities alongside their diabolically imagistic lyrics. Released in 1973, the group’s second album showed that the Cult were here to stay.”

The black: The red & the black -- O.D.'d on life itself -- Hot rails to hell -- 7 screaming diz-busters -- The red: Baby ice dog -- Wings wetted down -- Teen archer -- Mistress of the salmon salt (Quicklime girl) -- Bonus tracks: Cities on flame with rock and roll (live) -- Buck's boogie (studio version) -- 7 screaming diz-busters (live) -- O.D.'d on life itself (live).
