Here's another one I have been promising to post for a while now. This is Coven's LP Witchcraft (Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls) and it proclaims it is the first recorded black mass. Don't know if that's true, one, because I don't keep up on black masses, two, because I think either Anton LeVay or Alister Crowley released an LP of one earlier but I am unsure (see reason one again). This is 9 tracks of medium heavy, sometimes bluesy rock with a singer that sounds like an aggressive Grace Slick. The 10th track is the 13 minute spoken mass. It's a bit spooky but not as intimidating as the cover would lead one to believe. I tried to upload this to rapidshare a one file (I thought they were allowing files over 100meg and I did upload some the other day) but it wouldn't let me so I put tracks 1-5 in the first and 6-10 in the second (the mass is in the 2nd). You don't need both so if you want to try it out the first file is the shortest.
Tracks are tagged and ripped from vinyl at 320k.
May get some more up tonight or tomorrow.
