"Sixteen pulverizingly heavy early masterpieces of dirty doom metal, this is a can't 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 it's 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

“Once a year I drink beer and listen to this record at top volume. Tonight is that night.”

Official gatefold double album of early 1970s 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) as the world's 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 Claw's live sets started to include many originals.
This collection of sixteen original studio tracks documents Iron Claw's existence from 1970 through 1974. It includes extensive liner notes, lyrics and photos inside the gatefold and on a 12” insert.
For fans of Tear Gas, Leaf Hound, Jerusalem, Ancient Grease, Toad, Incredible Hog, and Elias Hulk! Newly re-mastered for vinyl and sounding better even than our earlier edition!”
