So I recently just started getting into Cloven Hoof...and I'm kicking myself for having taken this long.

I first heard about them through the Venom page (on this website), in reference to all the NWOBHM bands that were opting for teh satanism gimmick...but once I actually started looking into them more the story just got insanely fun from there. They were all massive sci-fi nerds who were trying to be the new British KISS and they even adopted individual personas for their live shows (here's a picture for reference. Man do they look silly.)

Music wise, however, it's pretty amazing British power metal with lots of cheesy sci-fi and fantasy lyrics. Apparently they also tried to do the Thin Lizzy thing where every album is more or less a semi-concept album with a storyline paragraph on the back cover. They've rarely if ever had a real stable lineup apparently, with only the bass player being the longest serving.

Oh, and apparently they ditched the whole satanism angle after the first album.

I think the singer is great - the voice - the tone - the energy.

One of my favourite bands of all time.

Check out their latest album Who Mourns For The Morning Star. Pure Painkiller style metal!

They have a new album titled Age of Steel on the way, this coming April. A must buy of course.

I have their album Resist or Serve, but I don't recall anything about it. Guess I need to give it a fresh spin.

Very good band. I like their album A Sultan's Ransom the best.

I still need to get this one. But the last time i checked, it was still a bit expensive on eBay. Hope it gets reissued soon.

I'm playing it now on the computer as I sit here. Not bad at all, although on a few songs the singer gets a little screamy. Which is probably why I sold off the actual disc. Oh well.

Big fan of Cloven Hoof. Who Mourns For The Morning Star was fantastic, and like Gilbert I am looking forward to the new one in late April. Still top level.

Dominator was reissued a few years back. I discussed that album in one of my YouTube videos after acquiring it.

I also bought the album for Scott after it was reissued. He showed it in a video after I mailed him a package for his birthday a couple of years back:

Yes i picked it up on cd in Paris about a year and a half ago. Excellent album.

I did see Sultan's Ransom on eBay. Sold by a brazilian seller whom i've already bought from a few cds.

Might pick this one up.
