Coven featuring World-Class Vocalist Jinx Dawson

January 1st 1969 to Present

48 YEARS

This is the longest winning streak of any band in the history of hard rock/ heavy metal to have the same artistic vision they originally started out with, with zero sell-out releases, washed-up out of ideas or going off of the rails

We are a GOTHIC METAL/ AVANT -GARDE -age as well as a DEATH METAL age publication. I have been a heavy metal fan since 1978, and one of the first things you notice about 1980’s metal’s artist there were 2 periods in time where the 1980’s metal bands sold-out, 1985 and 1987 are years that stick out thrash metal artist had a sell-out all there own called the SLOW DOWN syndrome. Very few if  any 1980’s bands could cut it in the 1990’s is. When the GOTHIC METAL age and the DEATH METAL age and the AVANT-GARDE METAL age,  metal sellouts happened one after one until AND THERE WERE NO NONE. While GOTHIC METAL does not have the concept of “selling out” or artist are some of the softest and some of the hardest, a lot of my readers who are thrashers. If one is to take serious the concept of band’ selling out, which we do not, just were showing of our acumen and point out the bad journalist by metal publications who refuse to accept there favorite artist are no longer part of HEAVY METAL GOLD STANDARD….THE HIGHER A BAND RANKS HERE, the more we play there CD’s and ALBUMS to determine the album of the year….For example we always thought Metallica were a better artist as a Alternative band from LOAD until Do than they were ever a Metal artist, they are better served as a Alternative Metal band ever than when they were thrash metal hero’s. But since there AlternicA albums are not the GOLD STANDARD albums for he Alternative Metal Genre, we have to say so. Myself I said this is a GOTHIC METAL and a AVANT-GARDE – age as well as a Death Metal age publication, myself I dress in Business Suits and attend Classical Music concerts just as much as I attend Hair Metal, Thrash Metal and Gothic Metal Concerts!!
This is just a insight as to why certain bands are covered here and why other bands rank below the under 99.1 Percentile, they may make out top 100 albums for a quarter or a year, but will not get the enough spins on our turn tables to even qualify for album of the year. Every record review gets 250 spins 21 days time 12 hours, for a accurate reviews. And in October the top 10’s of each album will get 500 hours each for listens to determine the best of the best in song-writing as well as song-writing architecture in terms of compositional excellence at the WORLD-CLASS level, and keep in mind virtuosity is also a key factor, but always keep in mind we always make sure WORLD-CLASS VOCALIST are featured, here as much as possible, and when a band sells out/washes out/ or goes off the rails, we always provide a immediate successor act to follow in there footsteps if a peer is not found. then we move on to the next most vicious metallic act on planet metal. In 2017 metal fans have it better today now, than we ever had in it in the GOLDEN AGE OF HEAVY METAL August 1st, 1981 to October 30th, 1986. 2016 WAS A TOP 5 YEAR IN HEAVY METAL’S HISTORY, on parallel to 1983,1984,1985,1986,1990,1991,1994, 2003. THERE ARE 9 GOLDEN AGES OF HEAVY METAL…and we try to cover each one evenly, but when the World’s GREATEST HEAVY METAL BANDS release albums, they will get the priority coverage…!!! I have work on a few hundred top 100 album of all-time committees, since 1980. And if you were never invited to work here, is because you were never there as a heavy metal fan back in May 1979 or August 1983 like I was, sure I trust and respect my peers….!!! I lived a full live most are trying to recreate, via nostalgia by living in the past, but still goes over everyone’s head that if you want to know about the best artist of a GOLDEN AGE YOUR TRYING TO RECREATE, it is never found on the internet, before the internet every distribution network for record labels had fanzines. Fanzine are a specialized press for RIFF BASED HEAVY METAL  
In this article we will try over the next year to get every KICK*ASS*METAL band on this list !!!! So consider this list as a work in progress
