    Remember when rock 'n' roll was dangerous? When people feared Ozzy Osbourne because they thought he was the spawn of the devil? When the Misfits were thought to be demons from below dressed in human flesh? Or when the world feared that rock 'n' roll would poison the minds of the youth and have them worshipping Lucifer whilst conducting Satanic rituals in their bedrooms? Well, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats do, and they're doing their best to make rock 'n' roll a place safe for...well, no one. By now, you may already be familiar with the legend. The band began uploading songs to YouTube before they ever performed live. And they would only use vintage equipment to both perform and record as they felt it better rooted their sound in that late-'60s era from which they draw so much inspiration. It wasn't until they signed with Rise Above Records that they had their first live performance, several years after they self-released their first album, "Volume 1," which is incredibly rare and hard to find as of this day. Whatever it is Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats are doing to preserve the Golden Age of heavy metal, it's working. Their songs are laced with dark, heavy psychedelia that harkens back to such luminaries as Blue Cheer, early Alice Cooper, and (of course) Black Sabbath. They've also drawn comparisons to early Stooges, which is more subtle but definitely there. My personal favorite tracks are "I'll Cut You Down," "Death's Door," "Curse in the Trees," "13 Candles," and "Ritual Knife"; I'm surprised "13 Candles" was never released as a single as it's hands-down my favorite song on this album. All-in-all, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats have a remarkably solid debut album in Blood Lust, and debuts like this don't come around all that often. Initially, I didn't particularly care for this album and found it mediocre, but something in it drew me back in again and again, and each time I listen to it I love it a little more. And that, folks, is what makes these guys so dangerous!

    I found this band after looking for bands similar to Ghost. They aren't similar at all, but still darn good.
