Occult rock pioneer Jinx Dawson’s Coven outfit are one of those acts like psych band Anonymous who ought to be worshipped on a much wider scale. Dawson was way ahead on the sexually liberated and dark occult witch rock game, her band a presence as early as the late sixties. How many bands were singing about baby blood sacrifices and devil shit way before King Diamond? Not that many besides Coven and Sabbath.

The band inspired many an act from The Devil’s Blood to Blood Ceremony to Lucifer and Ghost and are just freakin’ classic. Now with the internet and genre sub-snobbery one upmanship at least people are finally finding Coven on a wider scale again. Now, they reunite for their first ever European show for Roadburn 2017! Unholy shit!
