Ripple Music’s ambitious all-star tribute album »Döminance And Submissiön: A Tribute To Blue Öyster Cult« is premiering in full exclusively on Brooklyn Vegan, ahead of its worldwide release this Friday.

Founded in 1967, Blue Öyster Cult are considered pioneers of occult hard rock, marking generations with timeless anthems such as »(Don’t Fear) The Reaper«, »Burnin’ For You«, »Cities On Flame With Rock And Roll« or »Godzilla«. The New York outfit has since then remained a reference act of the 70s US rock scene.

The »Döminance And Submissiön: A Tribute To Blue Öyster Cult« project was initiated by Poison Idea’s departed drummer Steve Hanford aka Thee Slayer Hippy, in conjunction with Ian Watts of Ape Machine. The album highlights some of the finest work from the legendary band, thanks to unique contributions from Mark Lanegan, Billy Anderson, Mondo Generator, Great Electric Quest, War Cloud, Zeke, Year Of The Cobra, Ape Machine, Tony Reed (Mos Generator), Howling Giant, Quasi, Bob Balch (Fu Manchu), Jeff Matz (High On Fire), Fetish, Holy Grove and many more greats of the heavy rock world. It will be released in a special edition 2xLP (limited colored and classic black edition), CD and digital.

»Döminance And Submissiön: A Tribute To Blue Öyster Cult« out January 14th, 2022 on Ripple Music.

As Poison Idea’s drummer and producer, Hanford lived the hard road of the rock veteran. He played on two highly influential hardcore records: »War All The Time« and »Feel The Darkness«, and worked as a producer on indie rock projects such as Heatmiser (with Elliot Smith) and punk albums for notable names like The Hard-Ons. Following struggles with addiction and a seven-year prison sentence, he turned his life around, starting work in a music program and playing drums first in The Skull and then joining Ape Machine as drummer and producer. While on the road with Ape Machine, Steve decided to produce a tribute record to one of his favorite bands, Blue Öyster Cult.

Hanford was an accomplished and respected musician, able to round up a star-studded cast of bands for the tribute. Passing away in May of 2020, he didn’t see the project’s completion, but he completed most of the recordings, leaving Watts to gather the final pieces. All proceeds will go to Hanford’s widowed partner, Kitty Diggins.
