This week’s heavy metal history lesson says farewell to Blue Öyster Cult guitarist Allen Lanier (1946-2013), with classic BÖC cuts and covers by 3 Inches of Blood, Thrones, Candlemass, Tarot, Tesco Vee, Iced Earth, Metallica, and more. Billed as the “American Black Sabbath,” BÖC were giants of 1970s heavy metal, with haunting occult-laced lyrics and astonishing musical chops. We salute the passing of a master —know your Roots!
