Vincebus Eruptum (/vɪŋˈkeɪbəs ɪˈrʌptəm/; pseudo-Latin) is the debut album of American rock band Blue Cheer. Released on January 16, 1968, the album features a heavy-thunderous blues sound, which would later be known as heavy metal. It also contains elements of acid rock, experimental rock, blues rock, stoner rock, and garage rock.

Vincebus Eruptum sounds monolithically loud and primal today, but it must have seemed like some sort of frontal assault upon first release; Blue Cheer are often cited as the first genuine heavy metal band, but that in itself doesn't quite sum up the true impact of this music, which even at a low volume sounds crushingly forceful.

Blue Cheer was an American rock band that initially performed and recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s and was sporadically active until 2009.

Blue Cheer officially invent the term power trio with this tune, the drums are nothing short of bombastic, the guitar searing and the bass sparse and strong. Peterson has to be one the best singing bassists in rock music (maybe second to Kim Deal, sorry Geddy Lee). His voice was raw before raw was cool. You could feel the pain in his heart in your ear. You could hear the acid too, if it was possible at least. The instrumental parts of this album are just as strong, giving the listener a trapped feeling.
