"Official 2021 vinyl reissue of this epic heavy UK hard rock album from 1972, produced by Deep Purple's legendary frontman, Ian Gillan, originally released on the Decca/Deram label. It was Gillan who said of them: 'Not many bands really excite me. But this one's so raw and completely unpretentious. They make the biggest, bloodiest noise you can imagine, tempered with moments of extreme emotion.' And, of course, he's right -- the music is a menacing combination of over-the-top vocals and screaming lead guitars that sounds ahead of it's time, yet clearly drenched in the rough, heavy sound of the early 70s UK underground. Jerusalem's music could easily pass for something from the early British heavy metal scene -- or something from the emotional hardcore scene of the mid-1990s (the blistering raw emotion of 'Primitive Man'). A favorite among vinyl collectors, the album is presented here in its ultimate glory, with all tracks direct from the original master tapes, housed in a high-quality replica gatefold cover. Insert has liner notes written by bassist Paul Dean + rare photos. Highly recommended for fans of groups like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Leaf Hound, Iron Claw, Toad, Buffalo, Zior, Horse, Incredible Hog, Dogfeet, Elias Hulk, Ginhouse and the like. Rough, raw, and doomy!"
