The Devil's Blood

With a name like The Devil's Blood and an apparent penchant for all things Satanic and occult, one could imagine a frosty black metal band or perhaps Sabbath-inspired doom. But this duo, comprised of instrumentalist Selim Lemouchi and sister/vocalist Farida, is anything but that, instead we've got 70's-influenced, pyschedelic quirky hard rock, really quite a trip. Imagine, maybe, mid-period Blue Oyster Cult with vocals by ... someone else mentioned Grace Slick crossed with Ann Wilson, and that's a fair comparison. She's clearly not a typical metal vocalist, but fitting for this atypical band who was only fleetingly metal at best. It's fair to say that this band was as responsible for any for the occult rock mini-boom that took place during their tenure. The band kept a rather low profile during its rather short run, disbanding in 2013 just as people were starting to figure out what they were all about. Selim sadly committed suicide a year later.
