Shock Tactics


Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Samson: Bruce Dickinson (vocals); Chris Aylmer (acoustic guitar, bass, background vocals); Paul Samson (electric guitar, background vocals); Barry "Thunderstick" Graham (percussion, background vocals).
  • Samson's best album, 1981's Shock Tactics, was the last to feature singer Bruce Dickinson (then known simply as Bruce Bruce). The band's songwriting had improved and was comparable to other up-and-coming British heavy metal bands at the time, such as Saxon, Diamond Head, and Iron Maiden. The band also benefited greatly by the presence of producer Tony Platt, known for his work with AC/DC, among other heavy metal acts. Kicking off with their best-known song, "Riding with the Angels" (penned by ex-Argent singer Russ Ballard), other highlights include "Earth Mother," "Blood Lust," and "Communion." "Nice Girl," however, treads on Spinal Tap-territory with it's woefully cliched and predictable lyrics. Although Samson would continue after the release of Shock Tactics, Dickinson would go on to greater success and acclaim when he replaced Paul Di'Anno in Iron Maiden. ~ Greg Prato
