The 70’s were responsible for birthing not only Heavy Metal, but also a mountain of obscure Heavy Rock classics that all pretty much flew under the radar due to the lack of money to get these bands and records more well known. Bolder Damn from the U.S. is a prime example of how amazing a band can be, but yet virtually still unknown to a lot of people until now. Talk about HEAVY, this band was extremely heavy for the time of their debut release in 1971. They certainly challenged Black Sabbath in terms of heaviness. Their closing song ‘Dead Meat’ would be considered some of the heaviest/proto-doom riffs to be heard back then. ‘Dead Meat’ was an epic barnburner for the time. Even to this day that song is it still carries the same impact it did when it was originally released, much like the song ‘Black Sabbath’. For people that know more obscure greats like 70’s era Pentagram and Sir Lord Baltimore, this album fits right in with those. It’s a little more in the psych/fuzz heavy rock genre, but what’s not to love there? The album was re-mastered and the booklet contains a history of the band, lyrics, and old photos.

(unheard of before, but happens often nowadays),or rolled one with heavy staff from Kandahar instead of usual mild grass of Acapulco. Bolder Dawn found its inspirations on American soil in the same…
