Our pals over at Lion Productions have made a name for themselves by reissuing the creme de la creme of underheard jams from the Sixties & Seventies ranging from the softer to the harder ends of the spectrum. First they unleashed the Jerusalem record a couple years back now prepare thyself for Scottish dungeonmasters IRON CLAW. Heed the roar of the Lion-Sixteen pulverizingly heavy early masterpieces of dirty doom metal this is a cant miss package for all fans of heavy psych proto-metal and the early days of doom rock. - The Ripple Effect. This Scottish band are just ridiculously heavy and I think its a travesty that the sixteen songs they wrote around 1970/1971 never got an official release until 2009. This whole album is just breathtaking. - Terrorizer. Official heavy-duty gatefold double album of early 70s Scottish underground heavy rock from Iron Claw a band who were stomping around the UK with the likes of Black Sabbath Hackensack Pink Fairies Juicy Lucy and others but who never released a proper album. Iron Claw started their career in 1970 as (more or less) the worlds first Black Sabbath tribute band- they incorporated the entire first Black Sabbath LP and single into their live set! And as it happens it was Iron Claw bassist Alex Wilson who unearthed the oldest known concert recording of Black Sabbath a 1969 gig recorded by Wilson in Dumfries Scotland! As time progressed Iron Claws live sets started to include many originals as well as covers such as War Pigs Fairies Wear Boots Wicked World Green Manalishi and Lady Whisky. This collection of sixteen original studio tracks documents Iron Claws existence from 1970 thru 1974 and includes extensive liner notes lyrics and photos inside the gatefold and on a 12 insert also includes an 11x17 poster. For fans of Tear Gas Leaf Hound Jerusalem Ancient Grease Toad Incredible Hog Elias Hulk! Newly re-mastered for vinyl and sounding better than ever!! First ever vinyl issue taken from the original tapes Old-style tip-on gatefold jacket + insert + poster Newly re-mastered for vinyl and sounding better than ever!!Iron Claw rages pretty hard & heavy right from the needle drop exploding outta the speakers in a puff of green wizards smoke. Doom & gloom are the prevailing moods from song to song cueing heavily from the Sabbath playbook but eschewing all those sensitive piano ballads for MORE SONGS ABOUT EVIL SHIT. Absolutely killer & essential. If you like your riffs pummeling & sinister then allow u sto introduce you to your new favorite band. This baby is pressed up on two vinyl albums in the blackest of black vinyl housed in a sweet looking gatefold jacket & includes not only an informative insert but also an 11x17 poster! The grip of the Iron Claw may feel rough but itll never sound sweeter than this. TOTALLY FUCKING RECOMMENDED.
