Curse Of The Hidden Mirror’ was the 14th studio album by Blue Öyster Cult, originally released in 2001 via Sanctuary Records. The album has been out of print for some time and this will also be the first tine it has been officially made available on vinyl.

On their first album of the new millennium, BÖC proved that they were still smart enough to play to their strengths, wearing their standing as 70’s classic rock legends as a badge of honour.
They took the album title from a song on an unreleased 1970 album by the Stalk-Forrest Group, the band that would eventually become Blue Öyster Cult. Cyberpunk science fiction writer John Shirley wrote the lyrics for several songs, while the music was typically classic Blue Öyster Cult.

Currently hard at work on new material for a studio album that will be released in 2020, BÖC’s Eric Bloom recently stated that “the band is in the middle of creating new songs and recording them in between tour dates and, as they evolve in rehearsals and soundchecks, we hope to drop a song or two into our live shows soon.
Everyone is involved in the writing and arrangement of the new material and we’re all excited about the prospect of a new BÖC album.”
BÖC will tour the UK in October 2020, including several shows with Deep Purple.
With a history spanning almost five decades, Blue Öyster Cult has a long history of success and have sold almost 25 million records worldwide. Songs like ‘Burnin’ for You’, ‘Godzilla’, ‘Astronomy’ and ‘(Don’t Fear) The Reaper’ are true classics and staples of the classic rock genre. Often cited as a major influence by some of the biggest names in hard rock and metal (including Iron Maiden and Metallica), the sound of Blue Öyster Cult has evolved through the decades, touching hard rock, heavy metal, progressive and psychedelic rock. They are often referred to as “the thinking man’s heavy metal band,” due to their often cryptic lyrics, literate songwriting, and links to famous authors.
