Sir Lord Baltimore

Sir Lord Baltimore by Sir Lord Baltimore
Released: May 1994
Label: Island Mercury
A decidedly slower paced effort than their debut, Sir Lord Baltimore's second album, released in 1971, is marked by the 10-minute, multilayered opener "Man from Manhattan," a sort of prog metal suite that appeared before there was such a thing as prog metal. Folks looking for the breakneck speeds of Kingdom Come may need to temper their expectations a bit, but between the mid-tempo crusher "Chicago Lives" and the unapologetically funky "Woman Tamer," Sir Lord Baltimore's effect on the heavy metal genre is undeniable.
