• coven Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls (LP, £21.75)

    label: akarma

    Whether it was coincidence, influence, or good old show biz imitation, Coven's 1969 album featuring the lead-off track 'Black Sabbath' was released the same year as the formation of the more popular heavy metal band. To make the story more even interesting, Coven featured a bass player named Oz Osborne. The soon-to-be-famous band Black Sabbath emerged a year after the release of this LP with a similar image and their own song called 'Black Sabbath'.
