Coven - Blood On The Snow
Limited orange colored vinyl LP pressing. Real Gone caused a stir of supernatural proportions when they reissued Coven's 1969 debut album Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls, complete with a nude sacrificial centerfold and instructions for a Black Mass. And Blood on the Snow, which displays a violin-playing devil on the cover and pictures of some sort of weird occult ritual on the gatefold spread, promises more of the same. But, in the sure hands of Who producer Shel Talmy, this 1974 release on the Buddah label presents a much milder, even, dare we say, benevolent version of the band that launched the whole genre of Satanic rock.
