Brimstone Coven releases new album, ‘Black Magic’, today worldwide via Metal Blade Records

- January 29th, 2016 –

West Virginian dark occult rockers Brimstone Coven have released their new album, Black Magic, today worldwide via Metal Blade Records! To purchase the record in various formats – and to hear Black Magic in its entirety! – please visit: metalblade.com/brimstonecoven.

Formed only four short years ago in Wheeling, West Virginia, Brimstone Coven self-released Brimstone Coven and its follow-up II in 2013, before Metal Blade inked a deal and packaged both releases as a single set, entitled Brimstone Coven (2014). Inspired by the Appalachian’s darkness and mysticism (such as the Mothman, a winged creature that emerged in the ’60s; Screaming Jenny; and the Phantom of Flatwoods), the quartet’s heavy rock also pushes the atmospheric envelope when the mood fits. Their latest album, Black Magic, boasts gritty, groovy riffs (a la Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Led Zeppelin) with Pink Floydian psychedelic movements, and three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Mamas and Papas, Yes, and The Byrds.
