COPPERHEAD – Southern Rock Band: 5 Cool Reasons To Buy Their Debut S/T Album From 1992


COPPERHEAD – It was sometime during the Spring of 2011 when I came across the Southern Rock band Copperhead, while perusing the internet for all things Rock ‘N Roll. After sampling a few songs from the 1992 S/T debut album from Copperhead, I eagerly purchased it off of iTunes. This is the one and only studio album that Copperhead ever released too. Going back to 1992, I only remember Copperhead by band name only.

I guess that’s what makes being a lover of Rock ‘N Metal so damn fun, I’m always catching onto a new band from yesteryear! I steered best Metal buddy, Scott Coverdale, to this Copperhead album and he is as huge a believer in this band’s Southern Rock sound as I am. Copperhead may no longer be an active band, still they are a band well worth remembering and checking out. If Copperhead has reunited in any way, shape or form, please leave a comment!

Below are five cool reasons why you should buy this Copperhead S/T debut album. I’ve also included two fun facts about the album.

Reason #1: If you are a fan of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Marshall Tucker Band, etc., then you shall have no problem at all diving ears first into Copperhead.

Reason #2: This Copperhead album in my most honest opinion… ROCKS from start to finish.

Reason #3: Neil Carswell (vocalist, guitarist & founding member) has that classic Southern Rock voice that’s just as contagious as his band’s music.

Reason #4: Copperhead could jam! From driving guitars to the keyboards, Copperhead just let it all loose on this album. In my opinion, this band kept it real with Southern fried and blue-collar enthusiasm through their songs.

Reason #5: This is straight-up Southern Rock here folks and nothing is watered down. So, crank up some Copperhead, grab your six-pack then kick back, while those good times and Southern Rock vibes take control.

Oh… by the way, my favorite song on this Copperhead album is: Highway. Whoa and Metal be thy name.

Two Fun Facts About This Copperhead Album:

Fun Fact #1: The song Long Way From Home became the title song for the motion picture: Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man. Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson starred in this movie too.

Fun Fact #2: The song Busted was included on the 1992 movie soundtrack: Dr. Giggles.

This is the cover for the Dr. Giggles movie soundtrack CD. Dr. Giggles is a Slasher film, can you tell?

  1. Coverdale Says:

    I love this album. Some of the tracks remind me a bit of a Heavy Metal Bob Seger.

  2. I had this album on cassette. Listened to it once and loved it. Unfortunately, when I played it the second time, it got eaten in the machine. I would love to hear it again.

    • Metal Odyssey Says:

      That was/still is always the “scary” part about cassettes… them being eaten in the “machine”. 😮

  3. I’ve been a fan since I heard the song Whiskey in early 93′ on J105 out of Boise, ID. After that, I bought the cd and later collected all the promo singles they released to radio for it. The single for Born Loser includes live versions of that song as well as Whiskey and Hard Livin’.
    They were a great band. I wish they would have stuck around longer.
    Oh, and btw…the version of Long Way From Home that appears on the HD&TMM soundtrack is a different recording than the one that appears on their 1992 album.

    • Very cool you’ve been a long-time Copperhead fan! I agree with you on wishing this band stuck around longer.

      Thanks for pointing out the variations between the song ‘Long Way From Home’ between the debut album and movie soundtrack. I never knew that cool piece of info.

      Rock Steady \m/\m/
