Warlock could be considered the first satanic / occult hard-rock band from Spain.

 

With roots in proto-doom band Necrophagus, formed in Madrid by singer / guitar player Victor Ramos in 1974, Warlock were heavily influenced by Black Sabbath, Lucifer’s Friend and Hawkwind but they were too dark and wild-looking for the record companies of the time.
During their brief existence, 1977-79, they supported the Ian Gillan Band at the Teatro Monumental, Madrid, 1979. They also shared stage with bands like Burning, Cai, Teddy Bautista & Canarios, Azahar, John Martyn, Eduardo Bort, etc.
In 1978, they recorded a bunch of demos, collected here for the first time.

 

Raw & wild lo-fi psychedelic hard-rock / proto-doom with space-rock touches!

 

Eight self-penned songs with titles like “Archives Of The Universe”, “Cortocircuito”, “Earth”, “Control Perdido”, “Space Ritual” (which is not a Hawkwind cover but a tribute to Dave Brock’s band, whom Victor once met in France), etc, plus a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid”.

 

*Includes colour insert with photos / memorabilia and liner notes.
