What up what up, y’all?! We’re back for another installment of BBR and today I’m feeling like some good ole’ ROCK is necessary!! So I’m coming at you with the UK Metal band MORE and their album BLOOD AND THUNDER!!
MORE hit the scene in the 1980s part of the new wave of British Heavy Metal going on then. Blood and Thunder is their second and final album released in 1982. I picked this bad boy up in Knoxville, TN a year or so back at a store called Hot Horse, and it’s definitely a great addition to the collection. The cover, featuring lead guitar monster Kenny Cox, is what immediately sold me on it. *Fun Fact* The lineup for this album had also changed during the recording session and vocalist, Mick Stratton, and drummer, A.J. Burton, were brought in. Burton’s drumming on the album is perfect and Stratton, who came in at the last minute, wrote and recorded completely new lyrics and vocal parts.
So without further needless words, check out Blood and Thunder and have yourself a righteous Sunday afternoon!!
Tonight we’re in Bloomington, Indiana at the Player’s Pub. Showtime is 9pm. See y’all there! ~ Boots
