Coven - Witchcraft LP. Coven's sound is inspired by the occult, as is immediately evident from their song titles and lyrics which speak of demons, witches and satanic rituals. Gatefold cover reissue, originally released in 1970, which attracted many fans of the genre, in part because a track titled "Black Sabbath" and the presence of a bassist by the name of Oz Osborne (ex Magic Lanterns) gave the band an air of mystery. However, this American band is of no relation to their famous English counterparts, althugh they do bear an uncanny sonic resemblance to Pesky Gee-era Black Widow!! Coven nonetheless, bring us a high quality album, both from a musical and visual standpoint (thanks to the dramatic cover). Notable tracks include "Satanic Mass" (a full out black mass with all the trimmings). The vocal harmonies seem to have been a direct influence on Uriah Heep, whilst the band themselves resemble the cast of every dodgy early 70s horror movie/thriller you have seen: all billowy witch dresses and Wyngarde moustaches (sometimes even worn by the same person). File alongside Atomic Rooster, Macabre/Pentagram, Salem, White Widow, Leaf Hound, Zior, Ghost, Necromandus, Laudunum, Iron Maiden (60s), the Rattles and the aforementioned Black Widow in the recently unearthed genre of 'black prog' or 'occult psych', which has made a comeback in recent years.

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic and will continue to remain open! Extra thanks to everyone who has been supporting us during this time! Restocking has been more difficult that usual, but I'm trying as best I can to bring more and more great music to the shop! Super huge thanks to you all from my Rockadrome family and I!!

However, please note that everyone in the biz has been experiencing erratic delays in shipping across the board as the world's postal services try to keep operations running as smoothly as possible. So, if you order be prepared for a possibly longer than usual wait as your package could be one that's gets tied up in the system.

New Release!
