Blue Oyster Cult
For five decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. The Long Island, New York‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work, and is one of few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. Blue Öyster Cult is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and the band was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
Upon the release of Blue Öyster Cult’s self-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy, yet-heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song.
Blue Öyster Cult’s canon includes three stone-cold classic songs: The haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s Agents of Fortune, the pummeling “Godzilla” from 1977’s Spectres, and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You” from 1981’s Fire of Unknown Origin.
Other notable Blue Öyster Cult songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Then Came the Last Days of May,” “I Love the Night,” “In Thee,” “Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Dominance and Submission,” “Astronomy,” “Black Blade” and “Shooting Shark.”
Blue Öyster Cult’s original core duo, vocalist/lead guitarist Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom, is complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, bass guitarist Danny Miranda, and drummer Jules Radino.
Blue Öyster Cult maintains a relentless touring schedule and released an album of new material, THE SYMBOL REMAINS, in October 2020 to rave reviews.
