I am indebted to Zischkale for suggesting vol. 30's tracks, thus enabling me to fast-track this in time for all your party celebrations, good man! My only entry here was the Deep Purple cover by an aptly-named band. And yes, track two is the real deal! Hey Zisch, I leave it to you to tell us a little more...

Nicely done, I can't believe you got it out so fast. Goblin's an Italian band that did soundtrack work for the original release of Dawn of the Dead and Suspiria. Track 2 is probably the "trick" part of this, but a good heavy song that's being talked about over at Looking forward to hearing track 4. The Antonius Rex is real over the top doom stuff, perfect fun Halloween soundtrack. "Demon in your Heart" is similar fare, with a wild ending. More gloomy stuff with Jacula, the real odd Spooky Tooth album, great Lucifer's Friend track that's sort of their "Black Sabbath." Nightmare is a band I know nothing about, but dig on the fat chorus-effect guitar riff. Weird rock 'n' roll. Track12 is pure inspiration for a Halloween night--big ol' Sabbath medley.

01. Goblin - Suspiria (1977)
02. Gotta Get Love (1976)
03. Bloodrock - D.O.A. (1970)
04. Rat Bat Blue [D.P. Cover] (1999)
05. Antonius Rex - Aquila non Capit Muscas (1974)
06. Flax - Demon In Your Heart (1976)
07. Jacula - Triumphatus Sad (1969?)
08. Spooky Tooth with Pierre Henry - Jubilation (1970)
09. Lucifer's Friend - Lucifer's Friend (1970)
10. Nightmare - Witch Woman (1979)
11. The Ghost - When You're Dead (1970)
12. Sabbath Medley '88 (1988)

Thanks again for listening.


  1. I didn't think too much of Spooky Tooth before, but that Ceremony album (track included here) has their best heaviest guitar, and weird avant-garde electronics over the top, pretty cool!

  2. Thank you for the nice compilation and thanks to include Jacula, an italian cult band, the darkest band of italian prog rock...

  3. Jacula pick inspired by the Sonidos Primitivos blog, great comps over there, too!

    And by "chorus guitar" on the Nightmare track I mean guitar with chorus effect. Or whatever it is that gives that effect.

  4. Hey guys! I'm just can't keep up for you! :)) I still listen to Hard Rock Heaven and decided just to look at the blog, but here are 2 new releases had done already!) You're great lads. I'm always glad to hear yours new comps.
    A lot of familiar "occult" bands in this compilation, and it's mean that Helloween should be realy wicked >:D

  5. Thanks Valti! Your comments are always valued and your praise is directed at Zischkale as he did the leg work in finding the tracks, otherwise this latest volume wouldn't have happened, I hope you enjoy it! Rich

  6. Great work you're doing for all of us Sabb heads (though the Candlemass medley always struck me as sacrilege.)I plan to download all of you comps. Keep the heavy rollin', brother!
