A Valentines gift to you, from Sister Midnight. A heartfelt 2019 cover of Coven's 'Blood on the Snow'-from 1974.
The 4th release from Sister Midnight, our special February/Valentines 2019 edition.
Originally recorded by the band Coven-in 1974, the title track of their 3rd LP. You should all know about the mysterious Coven by now…Their 1st LP from 1969 ‘Witchcraft Coven-Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls’ is an absolute heavy rock classic and a pricey vinyl collectable. Steeped in Satanic/Occult themed songs & images. The release of that LP Predated Black Sabbath’s 1st LP by 7-8 months. Ironically, the bands biggest success was actually a middle-of the-road-AM Radio-pop tune ‘One Tin Soldier’ used on the soundtrack of the hit early 1970s film ‘Billy Jack’, and not a Satanic/Occult rock epic. But again, you should already know that by now.
It would seem logical to cover one of the many amazing, Proto-Everything songs from the 1st LP, but that’s also a bit too obvious. Instead, 'Blood on the Snow’ was chosen because it rocks, plain & simple and features the vocal duties of our first female guest ‘Sister’ singer Amy.
Also a good excuse for a sloppy Guitar solo(s) and plenty of Cowbell, performed by our 2nd guest Sister, Mr. Ginger Vitus.

I love the fusing of Pink Floyd and sludge metal grooves on this album. That description is true, but leaves out the crafty songwriting and personal touch inherent in the songs. Recommended. Tim Halbur

This third studio release from Sergeant Thunderhoof is the best the band have put togther and that is high praise as the first two were pretty damn great stuff. Picking a favoite track was a real chore, and a pleasure as it gave me an opportunity to spend more time with the album trying to pick. Mike Williams
