BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1977
DISCO TERROR FRIDAY!
Hot Blood were a German disco production and brainchild of Stephan Klinkhammer also known as Boney M. The group also included Boney M’s Marcia Bennett on vocals.
The songs were recorded in Munich during the time of that city’s heavy disco wave – and it features some pretty nice keyboard work, set to strings by the Munich Philharmonic. Set to a Dracula theme the songs are more about seduction than anything else, giving the record a slinky sexy Euro 70s groove – and in most cases, the vocals are nothing more than a chorus repetition of the title. In 1977 the group released their only album titled “Disco Dracula” the album spawned the single’s “Soul Dracula” and “Terror On The Dance Floor” which were sizeable hits in some European countries. Full of camp this a fun single worthy of a listen.
