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, led by instrumentalist Selim Lemouchi and sister/vocalist Farida, was anything but that, instead we've got 70's-influenced, pyschedelic quirky hard rock, heralding the style that would soon become known as occult rock/metal. 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. 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.
