Discovered this band about a month ago while watching various videos on Youtube. After a short, but rather hard search i managed to track down a original copy of A Sultan's Ransom on CD. Brilliant album, with 3 songs that are some of the best metal songs ever written IMO.
Also waiting for the Dominator LP to show up soon Very Happy

For those who don't know this band; Cloven Hoof is a english band that appeared in the early eighties together with a lot of other good bands.
After releasing a minialbum, a fullength and a livealbum, they changed all the members except the bassist, and released two further albums in the 88 and 89. Those two albums are more US metal, as where the debut is more in the NWOBHM-vein.

A Sultan's Ransom is KILLER. This one's my favorite track:

Anyone else hear a drum machine on that album?

s/t is also good but a bit uneven.

Probably the best live band I've seen this year.

All the albums are class.

Legends. I even like the faux live LP they did which, along with The Opening Ritual, is the only vinyl I have missing of theirs.

Who has the balls to reissue their stuff?

Great band! The songs rule, live they're awesome as well. They could do with losing the bum wiggling and silly costumes though...
