“Black To Gold,” a track off of traditional heavy metal band Christian Mistress‘s upcoming album Possession, has made its premiere on National Public Radio! Not exactly the first place one would expect to hear heaviness, but nevertheless, a stream of “Black To Gold” as well as a brief interview with lead singer Christine Davis are available on NPR’s official website.
Influenced primarily by NWOBHM artists like Witchfinder General and Iron Maiden, Christian Mistress manage to put a modern spin on an old favorite sound. Possession, the band’s second album, will hit stores on February 28. In the meantime, if you’re lucky enough to be on the West Coast, check out the band during their mini-tour on the following dates:
2/22/2012 Seattle, WA @ The Black Lodge (with Black Breath, Green and Wood)
2/24/2012 Portland, OR @ Danava (with Plan B)
3/2/2012 Olympia, WA @ The Art Supply Gallery (Possession CD Release Show)
