Musical Interlude: Metal Head (1983)

Blotto, the kings of the upstate NY music scene in the early 80's, were way ahead of the curve when they unleashed "Metal Head" in 1983. They could see the emergence of heavy metal in the mainstream, thanks of course to MTV. Like, you couldn't escape the sounds of Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, and the Scorpions, to name a few, back then. Blue Oyster Cult's Buck Dharma makes a guest appearance, as the Cult and Blotto have been friends for a long time. In fact, years later, Blotto would open for the Blue Oyster Cult on a nostalgia-driven twilight show at Albany's Corning Preserve.

It's just too bad I never saw Blotto during the glory years, that's all I have to say.
