This previously unreleased 1971 album gets its first ever release on vinyl, via Rise Above Relics. Cult Band Bang recorded Death of a Country for Capitol Records, which was immediately rejected, considered to be sounding too underground and not commercial enough.
Regarded by many as being America’s answer to early Black Sabbath, Death of a Country, displays a darker psychedelic mood than the more straightforward proto-metal / hard rock that was to follow. Dark, trippy lyrics and studio effects owe more to early Pink Floyd than Black Sabbath on this particular release.
All editions come in gatefold sleeve with lyric insert.
