Armageddon. Buzzard. 1975.

I don't know where you guys are hiding, but there is plenty of untapped face melting macabre to shred to. Take this cut from Armageddon's debut album for instance. That's former Yardbird Keith Relf barking on lead Vox. This shit rips in a Motorhead meets Yes sort of way.

Relf kicked the bucket by electrocuting himself playing an improperly grounded guitar. If that isn't fucking rock and roll, I don't know what is.

Armageddon featured members of Captain Beyond and Steamhammer. Heavy company, dudes.

Eddie Kirkland & Foghat. 1977.

Holy shit this kicks all sorts of ass. Here's Eddie "Bluesman" Kirkland performing with Foghat as his back-up band in 1977 at the NY Palladium. How that rug stays on Eddie's head is a mystery. Serious shredding.

RIP Eddie Kirkland.

Warpig. Tough Nuts. 1970.

Kind of a poor, mildly flaccid man's Sabbath. The song is called "Tough Nuts" though, which immediately makes it worthy of a listen.
