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.

Nice! Any chance you have their other two LPs? They were called "Coven" and "Blood on the Snow."

Bigfoot Kit said...

That's the ones i'm after too!
If not, perhaps someone else could help out?
Here's hoping!

Mike and Bigfoot,

I don't think I have either of the other two.

Thanks time traveller! I just recently found your blog. Great site with great albums. I appreciate your efforts. It always amazes me at how some assholes will act on the internet because they are anonymous. Fuck You Army probably got his ass kicked on a regular basis as a kid. Now he thinks he is something special because he can type and he owns a pentium 200 with a dial up connection.

Best Regards,
Fucky you Fuck You Army

Thanks Time Traveller for your blog generally & this intriguing album in particular.

Well, about "Mr Fuck You" of the "Fuck You Army", all of us should never take time to answer his pitiful comments.
The best way is to completely ignore this kind of comment. Hopefully he'll soon crawl back to his hole.

I usually just delete comments like that (unless you are or have been a blogger you'd be surprised at how many) but from time to time I like to show some of the examples of human excrement that float into my little corner of the blogsphere. I just wish they'd have the balls to leave a name once in a while.

father popcorn is right. Army asshole isn't worth the time. Time Traveller, you are also right to delete such crap from your blog. Unfortunately, we all already knew that the internet is loaded with scum.

Thanks for a great album and thanks for the Seals and Crofts megapost as well.

I am now removing the posts from you know who.

And for the final word anyone can see, FYA--if you don't like what I do here, why do come here? Pretty stupid, dontchathink?

The worst donkey is the one that shits and don't look at ground, in your case you sit down on top!!
Best regards,
Fuck You Fraternity

Note: I'm not a boy, but yes one in some hundreds of soldiers unsatisfied with this crap rip.

Time Traveller said...

Then use your delete button moron, and shut the fuck up about it. It's free for God's sake, what the hell is your problem?

Bigfoot Kit said...

Some people are born ignorant and stupid and never progress beyond that state.
They are to be pitied or put out of their misery.
Don't let them affect you TT, the many who appreciate the great music you bring us, and the time you spend doing so, greatly outnumber the troglodytes.
Thank you.

Just FYI, Coven's "Witchcraft..." is now available for legitimate purchase on CD from Akarma records...
