|BOC's manager came up with the term "heavy metal". BOC themselves defined it over 3 albums between 1972 and 1974. "Hot Rails to Hell" and "The Red and the Black" are absolute classics! For some reason, they're not on the same level as "Iron Man" and "Paranoid". That's a damn shame. Anyone who merely associates BOC with their admonition against the fearing of reapers should really take a listen to their 1st three albums, starting with this one.|

|Teen Archer and Wings Wetted Down are two hidden gems from the BOC catalogue that deserve more recognition...|

|Hard, heavy R and B. This album ranks as one of the best metal pieces of all time.|

|This one was better than their debut. Classic album. For me, the best song off this is "Hot Rails to Hell", but the other tracks hold their own as well.|

|The name "Heavy metal" originated from the scientists who built the bomb for the Enola Gay. But Koogles is exactly right. Not only about the origin, but also about everything else. The addition of this band to the original animated "Heavy Metal" movie defined the mood of the show, in my opinion. Great band.|
