Despite starting out life as a one-man band, Devil’s Witches has gone on to build a following and fanbase as incredible as their sold-out back catalogue of unique vinyl releases.
Never one to play by the rules, original founder and mysterious multi-instrumentalist, Witchdoctor General, has welcomed a number of honorary members into his coven over the years. Yet on the business side of things, few friendships have proven as fruitful as the one the band has with Majestic Mountain Records.
Following on from Devil’s Witches collaboration on a special 12” split with Saint Karloff in 2019, and the limited-edition Record Store Day release of Guns, Drugs and Filthy Pictures , the Swedish label will once again take the reins on a reissue campaign of the band’s seminal debut, Velvet Magic .
“Velvet Magic was one of the best albums on 2017,” explains MMR’s Marco Berg. “In fact, it’s one of the best albums released in the last ten years. It’s a record that everyone should own without having to sell their body organs on the black market.”
Given that most of Devil’s Witches records are extremely rare commodities these days, with many collector pressings commanding upwards of hundreds of pounds, this long overdue and utterly essential repress is not to be missed. Whether you’ve championed the band from day one or have heard whispers and wails about just how magnificent they truly are, don’t sleep on this chance to recapture a collectable piece of underground rock history.
