Blue Metal is the ninth album by Australian blues band Chain, released in July 1989 via Forever Records.

Formed from the remnants of Perth band The Beaten Tracks in 1968, Chain were named after the classic soul track "Chain of Fools" by the band's early vocalist Wendy Saddington. The band's debut album, the classic Live Chain, recorded at Caesar's Palace discotheque, was released in June 1970, and shortly after the band signed a deal with Infinity Records. Chain's first single, "Black and Blue", reached number ten on the Australian charts in May 1971, followed by the album Toward the Blues, which peaked at number six in 1971 and placed Chain alongside other Australian acts like Billy Thorpe and the AztecsCarson, and The Adderley Smith Blues Band, at the forefront of the Australian blues movement.

 

Featuring Matt Taylor (Vocals/Harmonica), John Meyer (Lead Guitar), Michael Burn (Drums), and Bob Fortescue (Bass), Blue Metal was recorded in early 1989.

Departing from 1988's softer sounding Australian Rythym & Blues, Blue Metal sees Chain returning to the band's classic OzBlues sound, for a heavier and more guitar focused album.

Check out the tracks "Wouldn't Have Her Any Other Way", "Walk That Walk", "Maddison Blues" , and "G Slide".

This CD is housed in a jewel case and was pressed in Australia by Disctronics via Forever Records.
