Coven + Demon Head EXCL NL SHOWCOVEN
Het was de grootste verrassing qua boekingen op Roadburn 2017: de terugkeer van de legendarische band Coven. De groep rondom Jinx Dawson maakte eind jaren 60/begin jaren 70 de underground onveilig met hun occulte rock, om na drie albums weer in de diepten te verdwijnen. Het bleef tientallen jaren stil. Los van twee obscure platen in de jaren 00 gebeurde er weinig rondom Coven, tot Roadburn ineens uitpakte met deze boeking. Het was de eerste Europese show ooit voor Coven, voor misschien wel het grootste publiek wat ze ooit gehad hebben. Dat beviel Jinx en haar mannen zo goed dat de band een doorstart heeft gekregen. Ze komen nu terug voor een korte Europese tour!

In 2019, Coven will celebrate 50 years since the release of the very first and inspirational occult rock album, ‘Witchcraft – Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls’. This tour would be an awesome celebration of this, led by the bands incredible frontwoman, the high priestess, Jinx Dawson.

Devil Horns, the Left Hand Path, Satanic Rituals, Black Magick, Sexuality, and a seminal debut-album that has had a lasting appeal since 1969 (!) Coven’s Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls was far ahead of its time.

Coven is a band that appeal to fans of all genres of rock and have influenced everyone from Black Sabbath and Pentagram, through to The Devils Blood and Watain.

The band’s diabolical mix of proto-metal paired with dark psychedelica and prog was dabbed in deeply occult lyrics, and has always been a celebration of all things Left Hand Path. Whether it’s the much sought after and talked about Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls, or the band’s third album Blood on the Snow, Coven’s output has terrified peers and audiences, as well as the moral-elite since their incarnation. Their extreme dark and shocking rites, thriving on a strong woman’s sexuality, was unheard of at the time.


Long winters and short glimpses of the sun gave life to Demon Head in 2012 in the city of Copenhagen. It quickly became clear that what the five demon lovers had awoken could not be buried again. The sound of old amplifiers, tape recording, and raw power shows the inspirations from the first really heavy bands, blues and gloomy music in all its forms. A sinister kind of diabolical saw its first live appearance in late 2013 and since then Demon Head hasn't seem to be able to stop. Live shows have become notorious for their spell-like intensity and loud, dark groovyness.
