Hard rock with a total metal vision. Inspired by Black Sabbath and abetted by writer Richard Meltzer and manager/producer Sandy Pearlman, Blve Öyster Cvlt fully manifested their objectives with their second album Tyranny And Mvtation, presenting the BÖC mythos as a transfiguration of rock into haunted worlds beyond. New York poet Patti Smith contributed lyrics for “Baby Ice Dog”, completing a collective whose aspirations soared above most of their contemporaries.
