Brimstone Coven premieres new track, “Slow Death”, via

Brimstone Coven comments: “‘Slow Death’ is one of the faster/upbeat songs on the record. I’ve been asking Corey for a while now to write a song about an evil woman, and this is the result. It’s very rhythmically driven, and the solo section is downright epic. Enjoy!” 

For another preview of Black Magic, be sure to check out the video for the album’s title track at:, where the record can also be pre-ordered. The second single, “Beyond the Astral”, can be streamed here: 

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. Their latest album, Black Magic, 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. 

Brimstone Coven line-up:
“Big John” Williams – vocals
