The fact is that Coven were really good at packaging their records. The music, however, is shit. I've had this LP in my collection for 30 years now. And the cover is great, worth every penny of the 50 cents I spent on it. Every now and then, I'll look at it. But I don't listen to it, because calling it a "dirge" is charitable. Banal, dull, soulless and gutless music designed to shock the bourgeoisie. Still, a nifty trick when the band is a joke and the cover serves as its own punchline. Music for impressionable youth who model themselves after the Easter Bunny, who, ultimately, is a more effective pagan icon than anything this band of losers produced. Just looking at them, you can practically smell the cheap weed and Taco Bell farts their squalid apartment must have been so thick with.

I have version with different labels: at the bottom there are 3 logos: Philips, Mercury and Vertigo. Below that it says "MANUFACTURED AND DISTRIBUTED BY PHONOGRAM, INC."

First side is alright, good moving cheesy fun letting the consumer believe it's going to prove itself as something more than just a tiresome campy outing (at first sight, the album cover looked too silly for it's own sake to think otherwise)....alas, all of the potential disappears on side two where Coven obviously start to struggle with their own restrictions culminating in plainly repetitive filler material...finally, the closing 13+ minutes of crashing bore named Satanic Mass REALLY puts the album down. When I've purchased this album for the first time, some 25 years ago, I was expecting a blasting, mind blowing long psychedelic track full of guitar/organ attacks with omnipresent dark under/overtones, but what a dissapointment when I realised it was nothing more but a late night spoken radio show.
The purpose of the album with such an threatening title, vivid cover art and the badass premise in general should be dealing with at least a little bit of menacing, disturbing or psychedelic vibes, but none was presented. Seemingly, all of that was an unreachable goal for the involved.

To all previous commenters: This edition is a bootleg, which is why you can't sell it. You used to be able to, but I think they blocked it because of the new pressing from Real Gone Music which is now for sale and is not a bootleg. At least that's what I suspect.

Great sounding reissue. Quiet, flat, nice orange marbled wax. The gatefold jacket with extra foldout lyrics is a very nice touch. Sadly, the LP is pressed off center enough to be really annoying in some sections. Most probably won't even notice, but if you are sensitive to wow/flutter then you may want to reconsider. I also own the Red variant of this album and it is equally off center.
