Cultösaurus Erectus is the seventh studio album by American hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult, released in 1980. Following an experiment with a more-polished sound on the album Mirrors (released the previous year), this recording marked a return to the band's earlier, heavier sound. The first track, "Black Blade", features lyrics by fantasy and sci-fi writer Michael Moorcock and is about Stormbringer, a black sword wielded by Elric of Melniboné, the most famous character in Moorcock's mythology.

Signing on with Deep Purple/Black Sabbath producer Martin Birch, Blue Öyster Cult made more of a guitar-heavy hard rock album in Cultosaurus Erectus after flirting with pop ever since the success of Agents of Fortune. They also promoted this album by going out on a co-headlining tour with Sabbath. Gone are the female backup singers, the pop hooks, the songs based on keyboard structures, and they are replaced by lots of guitar solos and a beefed-up rhythm section

Blue Öyster Cult returned to the hard rock they were known for with this 1980 album, their seventh studio full-length at the time. A year before, Mirrors had seen the band experimenting with folk rock and power pop, and the record had sold poorly. Cultosaurus Erectus didn't exactly put BÖC back in the Top Ten (that wouldn't happen until next album, Fire Of Unknown Origin) but did feature characteristically great songs
