In the sure hands of Who producer Shel Talmy, this 1974
release on the Buddah label presents a much milder, even, dare we say, benevolent version of the band that launched the whole
genre of Satanic rock. Part of this was no doubt due to Coven's having gotten a taste of mass chart success in the early part of the decade with their version of 'One Tin Soldier' that was featured in the 'Billy Jack' movie. And, while true unbeliever and lead singer Jinx Dawson -one of the most unjustly neglected vocalists of her era- is still around, guitarist Christopher Neilsen brings a lighter songwriting touch to the material, former guitarist Jim Donlinger having left to further pursue his interest in the macabre with the band H.P. Lovecraft. That's not to say that 'Blood On The Snow' is a pop record; 'Don't Call Me' almost sounds like 'Raw Power' Stooges, their cover of Alan O'Day's 'Easy Evil' is the toughest ever recorded, and the title song simply blazes. But only 'Blue, Blue Ships,' with its melancholy take on mortality, would qualify as a song about the occult, and numbers like 'This Song's For All You Children' and 'Lady-O' wouldn't be out of place on a Fleetwood Mac or Jefferson Starship album, thanks in part to Talmy's orchestral production touches. In short, this was a band far more talented and versatile than Buddah knew how to handle; hence this was the last Coven album to emerge for 40
years. Limited to 1200 copies on red and white "Blood on the Snow" coloured vinyl.
