Brimstone Coven - Black Magic (2016)

2016 CD Metal Blade

Brimstone Coven was a very promising American band.
Most of the writers/listeners called their style as Traditional Doom Metal.
Well, after a very good eponymous album, some really good stuff, they have recorded for the well-known label Metal Blade.
Nowadays 9 out of 10 bands plays common music, already done, styled yet sounds, older things, on and on.
Black Magic sounds like the same old stuff, not only to the old/traditional style (Slow Death), but even to the same band (Black Magic, The Seers).
If you think that great labels should bring something better that underground ones
you are wrong.
Black magic has only one color, a long album having only one sensation, beat, mood,
and this is not good...a delusion.
