Druid - Vampire Cult (1989) + Four Curses (1986)

Kickass obscure US heavy metal. Ample gated reverb and delay give Vampire Cult a kult, eerie sound that's reinforced by stuff like the droning feedback solo at the end of "Word of the Lord". And, obviously, the album cover's one for the history books. In conclusion, I fucking love this record and you should, too. Plus, I'm gonna throw in the Four Curses EP cause why the hell not.

  1. Mega, huh? While I'm happy - I hope it works out without giving you issues. Also...holy shit. Haven't listened yet, but...This looks killer, and your description sold me. I'll be back to share my inevitable praise. \m/

    1. Update: Said I'd be back. So...Been jamming this, and - as I predicted - I love it.

  2. Man... Heavy Metal just went all to shit when they stopped letting middle-schoolers draw the album covers in pencil.
