Brimstone Coven Release Black Magic Jan. 29; Title-Track Video Now Playing

brimstone coven

I guess you could call the forthcoming Black Magic from Brimstone Coven the West Virginian outfit’s first album. The band offered up a 70-minute self-titled last August as their debut on Metal Blade (track stream here), but that was two earlier EPs compiled together, so in a way, yeah, Black Magic — which Metal Blade has up for preorder now — is their debut full-length. Fair enough.

Either way, cultish chicanery rules the day, clearly, in the newly-unveiled video for the title-track, as Brimstone Coven transition back and forth between robe-clad incantations and more-of-a-t-shirt-kind-of-thing live footage. The groove remains fervent, which is essential for such weedian creepery.

Your friend and mine, the PR wire, sends art, info, the preorder link and that video, which you’ll find below:

Brimstone Coven reveals details for new album, ‘Black Magic’; launches video for title track

On January 29th, West Virginian dark occult rockers Brimstone Coven will release their first full-length album, Black Magic, via Metal Blade Records! Recorded at Andrew D’Cagna’s Sacred Sound Studios in Ohio, Black Magic was mostly written over a year period against a backdrop of candles, incense, solitude, and a thick air of ganja. The resulting record 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.

Black Magic can be pre-ordered in various formats now at: See below for the album’s track-listing.

Black Magic track-listing:
1. Black Magic
2. Black Unicorn
3. Beyond the Astral
4. As We Fall
5. Upon the Mountain
6. Slow Death
7. The Seers
8. The Plague
9. Forsaken
10. The Eldest Tree

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. Brimstone Coven explains, “What sets ‘Black Magic’ apart to me is the genuinely eerie aura it invokes. We strove for a sound that makes you feel like you’re wandering through a shroud of mist, unable to see your own hand in front of your face. We want you to feel equally excited and creeped out, letting your imagination run wild and get the best of you.”

Brimstone Coven line-up:
“Big John” Williams – vocals
Corey Roth – guitar
Andrew D’Cagna – bass
Justin Wood – drums
