Geoff Griffith (bass) has done some nice sleevenotes for a Black Widow demo CD called "Sleeping With Demo(n)s". The music is of course first class and you will not be disappointed. The creators of "Come To The Sabbat" (the song composed by Clive Jones and Jim Gannon) will return, first with a live DVD which was filmed in 1970 including the whole "Sacrifice" show and after that there will be a new album including the first recorded Black Widow music since 1972. Musically the new music is very progressive, hard, heavy, uncompromising and melodic. Black Widow news/info site tells some of the latest news - the site is fully supported by Black Widow´s Clive Jones.

Read on for those demo sleevenotes by Geoff Griffith (the sleevenotes include those 10 new songtitles - it is a concept story!) :

"An ancient ARTEFACT is discovered in the form of a demon´s head. A strange pulsing causes all compasses to point EASTWARD and the journey begins to unravel the terrible secret.

After many hours of travel, a mountainous rock blocks the path and a feeling of dread is all around. Suddenly, a doorway appears and our two brave archaeologists enter, unaware they have opened THE PORTAL TO HELL, setting free the demonic powers that will destroy love and ambition around the globe.

Far, far away in a distant western city a young mother starts to feel unwell, experiencing a PRELUDE TO THE NIGHTMARE and loses everything dear to her whilst SLEEPING WITH DEMONS! Her family is helpless, she has been TAKEN!

The Devil himself, now The World President, speaks to the people on his very own RADIO HADES demanding the return of the head, a transmitter between Heaven and Hell, to restore a balance of good and evil that cannot exist without each others...So , RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

After the ordeal once again in the chamber of all evil, the darkness is lifted. Walking INTO THE LIGHT, towards a new beginning, a new BIRTH, though nothing will ever be quite the same again! The end................?"

Some credits written by Geoff:

"Thanks to Et for her beautiful Thai voice - Thanks to Steve "Gaz" Coleman for technical expertise and gratuitous humour - Thanks to Pasi Koivu for his enthusiasm and publicity - Thanks to Kelvin for his support and hospitality

And last, but by no means least, thanks to Clive Jones whose tireless work for keeping BLACK WIDOW alive was the inspiration and the reason for this collection.

A special credit to Clive for those four little words "Come To The Sabbat" appearing on "Radio Hades".

Hits: 2805
