* SubduedSection: Several of their songs have this- "Career of Evil" and 'The Vigil are two notable examples. "Career of Evil" has a LONG, jam-like one in the middle, while "The Vigil" has one just before its guitar solo that's more-or-less a repeat of the intro.

Blue Öyster Cult is an American HardRock[=/=]HeavyMetal band. Their manager, Sandy Pearlman, formed the group as Soft White Underbelly in 1967. The group cut its teeth playing CountryMusic in biker bars before, at Pearlman's urging, their musical style shifted in a harder, psychedelic direction inspired by Music/BlackSabbath. After some trials and tribulations, including the departure of lead singer Les Braunstein and his replacement with acoustic engineer Eric Bloom, the band eventually took the name Blue Öyster Cult [[HeavyMetalUmlaut (with a trope-making ümlaut over the "O")]] and released their SelfTitledAlbum under Creator/ColumbiaRecords in 1972. The original lineup consisted of lead singer/guitarist Eric Bloom, lead guitarist Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser, guitarist/keyboardist Allen Lanier, and drummer Albert and bassist Joe Bouchard.
