Faustcoven is a Doom Metal band from Norway, started in 2002 by sole member Gunnar Hansen (with Johnny Tombthrasher, and Terje Myhre Kråbøl having contributed live drums in the studio), they are inspired by trad./proto Doom and classic Heavy Metal and are trying to follow the lead of Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Hellhammer/Celtic Frost rather than the many other Doom bands. The most modern part of Faustcoven is probably the extensive use of dissonance and the total package is one mans personal time machine back into the 80’s (and sometimes even the 70’s).

Signed on die hard old school label Barbarian Wrath, the discography of Faustcoven so far apart from demos, includes 2 full lengths (The Halo Of Burning Wings (2003) and Rising From Below The Earth (2008)) and one 7’’ split with Norwegian Black Metal band Koldbrann released in 2006.

Two first albums were rereleased as LP’s on legendary vinyl label Nuclear War Now!, a demo/rehearsal anthology on Under the Sign of Garazel, and a split 7’’ on Iron Tyrant with German labelmates Cultes des Goules. The full-length, tentatively titled “Hellfire And Funeral Bells” was released in April 2012 by Nuclear War Now!.

While representing a rebellion against everything modern, gothy and sterile, what Faustcoven first and foremost is, is a passionate declaration of love for everything that was great about 70’s and 80’s Metal, and a salute to the gods of the riff.
