Coven (US)


In the ongoing dispute of who was the first true occult hardrock band, one name usually crops up amongst the usual suspects: Coven. On their 1969 debut ‘Witchcraft Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls’, leading lady Jinx Dawson sings about personal liberation, sex and Satan over a backdrop of hard psychedelic blues rock. A new line-up formed around Jinx in 2016 to bring the Black Mass to a new generation of metalheads - justice has finally prevailed!
