Description:
•»   Black Widow were a rock band that formed in Leicester, England in September 1969. The band were mostly known for its early use of satanic and occult imagery in their music and stage act. The band were often compared with the better–known Heavy metal band Black Sabbath, but the bands were only superficially similar.Controversy aside, Sacrifice reached No. 32 on the UK Albums Chart. The band performed at the Whitsun Festival at Plumpton, UK, and at The Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.By 1971, the band had moved away from its darker occult imagery in an effort to gain a wider audience, which was unsuccessful. Having replaced Bond and Box with Geoff Griffith and Romeo Challenger, Black Widow released the self–titled Black Widow album in 1971 and Black Widow III in 1972 (by which time Gannon had left, replaced by John Culley) to general disinterest before being dropped by CBS Records. The band recorded an album, Black Widow IV, later in 1972 without a recording contract.
•»   Too often and unjustly compared to BLACK SABBATH because of their name and their Satanic lyrics on their first album, BLACK WIDOW had released an album under the name of Pesky Gee before changing their name. Unjustly compared because the music on that album is actually quite cheery and very much proto–prog. Unfortunately, the Stn label will stick to them although their next two albums will not be in that direction, the music staying within the confines of hard rock and prog.
