    thanks!! glad you like it! the demo will be available on tape in limited quantity for now as it takes a lot of time recording by ourselves and on cd. as of now we're not interested in trades as we are going to use the money from the demos for printing shirts which hopefully will be available shortly, talking to some people to get ourselves a good deal right now!

    send me a PM so that i can easily keep track of who is interested in the demo!

    we did a rehearsal tape, 7 copies or something because we wanted to play at muskelrock this summer, unfortunately it sounded like shit and i think they booked pentagram instead haha..

    since we only had two songs at the time we decided to record covers of WITCH - still alive and 1995 by the mighty GOTHAM CITY as well as their self titled song (best riff of all time?)
    we don't really want to upload them because of the shitty sound quality at this time but when we get the chance to play some live shows, who knows what songs might show up

    The rehearsal tape was made in 10 copies and I have one or two left. You can have one of them if you like, I'll make sure it's sent together with your copy of the real demo.

    Haha what the fuck! well I hope they book you for the next year! the festival fit's you perfect.
    I don't care much for the sound as long as you can hear the instruments and vocals reasonably good.
    It's also 3 of my all time favorite songs we're talkin' about here. Would be very interesting to hear your versions of them. :)

    yeah haha i can't say i blame them.. most songs were not even done and we hadn't rehearsed a lot either so in the end it was probably a good thing, hopefully we get all the more shows to play next year!

    also, thanks again everyone for your support!
    things are starting to happen and i'm sure we'll have some news to share in a not to distant future!

    Can't comment on that before I heard the rehearsals myself! :P
    However listening to these 3 new songs give the impression that you in that case have evolved as a band (a lot!).

    I really hope labels and more people will show interest in WITCHES' COVEN.
    It's a purifying fresh wind blowing into todays frigging scene of what they call heavy metal.

    You guys are really good, I'm buying a demo in cd when it's available (I have talked to Jonte). Can't wait to see you live again, saw your gig @ Ume Metal Open Air and it kicked ass!

    Keep up the good work!
