Ep. 86: Acid Rock n' Proto Metal From The Crypt Vol. III

Episode Summary

Welcome back my friends to Ep. 86 of the InObscuria Podcast! This week our rock n’ roll grave robbers dig deep into the 1970s Acid Rock n’ Proto Metal crypt to unearth some obscure bands that helped influence and mold what would become known as Heavy Metal. This is the third volume of our deep dive into the trippy and groovy beginnings of the heavy stuff!

Episode Notes

What is it that we do here at InObscuria? Well, we exhume obscure Rock n' Punk n' Metal in one of 3 categories: the Lost, the Forgotten, or the Should Have Beens. This particular episode is planted firmly in the: FORGOTTEN category, as all of these recordings occurred between 1971 – 1974. However, some of these bands didn’t actually see the release of this material until the 90s and the 2000s! As always, our hope is that we turn you on to something new in a genre and decade that you may have thought you already knew everything there was to know.

Songs this week include:

  1. Bang – “The Queen” from Bang (1971)
  2. CWT – “Widow Woman” from The Hundredweight (1973) 
  3. Icecross – “Jesus Freaks” from Icecross (1973)
  4. Tiger B. Smith – “Tiger Rock” from Tiger Rock (1972)
  5. JPT Scare Band – “Titan’s Sirens” from Past Is Prologue (1973)
  6. Hard Stuff – “Sinister Minister” from Bulletproof (1972)
  7. Iron Claw – “Clawstrophobia” from Iron Claw (1974)
