Sir Lord Baltimore - Selftitled & Kingdom Come (1970-71)

When the subject of heavy metal pioneers comes up (and one gets past the obvious bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Deep Purple), several lesser-known but still remembered bands are invariably mentioned, and one of them is Sir Lord Baltimore, who hailed not from Baltimore but from New York. The formed in the late 60's and managed two albums before giving it up (confusingly, the self-titled album is their second, not first). Given that these were released in 1970-1971, one shouldn't expect modern crushing guitars, but this was pretty heavy stuff for the time (particularly the debut), a wild, psychedelic hard rock sound that occasionally brings to mind early Budgie as well as the aforementioned Zep. They may have been the first hard rock band whose drummer was their lead singer, still a rarity in heavy metal. When modern stoner bands are referenced as "70s-influenced", this is the kind of band they're referring to

Got this album & their second back in '74 as 'cut-outs' from the bargain bin. Absolutely hated this, sounds like metal-parody or something. No, won't be downloading, heard it 30+ years ago & that was quite enough, thank you, prefer my heavy metal to be a bit more from the Hendrix/Blue Cheer axis. I think Don Brewer pioneered the 'singing metal drummer' bit in '69 w/GFR as well. "Woman, you are the master heartache" indeed...
