Black Queen were an amazing Black Metal band from San Francisco circa 1998 that had amongst it's ranks Pete Jay (Assuck, Wormwood, Cheap Dates) and Bill Bowman (Nigel Pepper Cock, Project:Annihilator) This demo, titled Witch Metal was inspired by Argento's Three Mothers trilogy (despite being released before the uninspiring third installment Mother of Tears). Some years ago, Pete moved to Seattle. Supposedly he is working on a new incarnation of Black Queen there and wanted to share this lost classic in order to spread the word. Another bit of trivial knowledge: both Black Queen and Ludicra (and The Gault) played their very first show together in San Francisco in 1998. I really miss seeing them perform, they were just better and better each time continually raising the bar. Thanks Pete for kicking this down, it's brilliant.
