Since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972, Long Island-based Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock for over four decades. Praised for their catchy-yet-heavy music, and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous (often in the same song), BÖC is one of the few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

Revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for their pioneering work, the band is frequently cited by other acts, including Metallica, as a major influence. BÖC was also listed in VH1’s countdown of the Greatest Hard Rock Bands Of All Time. Other notable BÖC songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Then Came the Last Days of May,” “In Thee,” “Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Dominance and Submission,” “Astronomy,” and “Shooting Shark.”

The bands current lineup includes original creative core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist, Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser and vocalist/rhythm guitarist, Eric Bloom, along with Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and their longtime rhythm section of bassist, Danny Miranda and drummer, Jules Radino.
