BLUE ÖYSTER CULT Biography
For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.
The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
Upon the release of BÖC'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. BÖC's canon includes three stone-­‐cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly 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» from1981's Fire of Unknown Origin. Other notable BÖC 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.»
The intense creative vision of BÖC's original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald «Buck Dharma» Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Danny Miranda, and drummer Jules Radino.
We realized we're a 'classic rock' band. That's what we are, that's what we do best, that's what we know. The band members are proud of BÖC's classic sound, and pleased the band is creating vibrant work for disenfranchised music lovers who don't like the homogenized, prefabricated pop or sound-­‐alike, formulaic rap-­‐metal, which monopolizes the radio airwaves and best-­‐seller charts.
BÖC has always maintained a relentless touring schedule that brings new songs and classics to original fans and, as Bloom puts it, «teen-­‐agers with green hair.
