Review of Vincebus Eruptum

Add header image

Choose file... or enter url:
By: Blue Cheer
Release date: 1968
Standing track: Out of Focus

Primarily known for their cover of Eddie Cochran's Summertime Blues, which is considered as one of the first, or the very first heavy metal record but I think their most strongest effort from this album is Out of Focus. The distortion works like a lucid dream and the intervals are totally rad! Start off with this song and listen to Parchment Farm almost immediately... a true classic!

There has been quite a-speculation on the meaning of the title and here is my input: Vincebus is not an actual Latin word, it's a combination of Vince, meaning Conqueror and Bus, meaning Ox or Bull. the other half, Eruptum means to break open, burst open

So, if roughly translated: Conqueror Bull about to Burst Open.... anyone care to comment?
