Mammal’s Merry Memories: Atomic Rooster – Death Walks Behind You
The rest of the Metal State team is still gallivanting. I think they’ve all gone to a ’70s disco club. That leaves me to play around with the heaps of old vinyl albums in the store room.
Atomic Rooster, a British band, were at their best between 1969 and 1975. They split up, then re-formed in 1980 but didn’t grab fans they way they used to before the birth of heavy metal.
This song, the title track from a great 1970 album, is about as heavy as any music was in the 1960s. It’s psychedelic heavy prog.
