Past is Prologue by JPT Scare Band
Released: Jan 2002
Label: Kung Bomar Records, LLC
Kansas City's JPT Scare Band didn't release an album until the 1990s, yet the group has been recording its burly jams since the early '70s. If you dig thunderous proto-metal from the age of bell-bottoms and thick 'staches, then you need to explore Past Is Prologue. This wonderfully raw mishmash of once-forgotten demos is proto-metal heaven, particularly the 13-minute opus "Sleeping Sickness." In 2007, Classic Rock Magazine tagged JPT as "the lost pioneers of heavy metal." That's no overstatement. These dudes slayed with the best of them: Cactus, Black Pearl, Pentagram and so on.
