Atomic Rooster was one of the finest examples of the progressive rock/heavy metal hybrid and often drew comparisons to the archetypal Deep Purple. In 1969 keyboard player Vincent Crane and drummer Carl Palmer, left The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and founded Atomic Rooster. Their debut self-titled album was issued in 1970 and became a respectable success, but Palmer soon moved onto Emerson, Lake & Palmer, who became one of the supergroups of the '70s. The band's sophomore album Death Walks Behind You was issued later the same year and features the group's classic line-up of Crane, John Du Cann and Paul Hammond. Critically and commercially Atomic Rooster's most successful album, the 8-song set is home to the hit single "Tomorrow Night." The album's cover features the William Blake monotype Nebuchadnezzar.
