Dutch band ZOON, led by guitarist and mastermind Ron Van Herpen (also a member of ŠKAN, and former live guitarist of THE DEVIL’S BLOOD and ASTROSONIQ) picked Argentinean webzine MetalEyeWitness.com to offer the exclusive world premiere of the track “Strike”, which will be part (and close) their debut album “Deep”. The album will be released by independent label Lighttown Fidelity, based in Eindhoven.
“Strike” is not only special for its deep melodic substance (a promising advance of the album that will be released on December 19th), but because it features the first collaboration as lead singer of Farida Lemouchi, the former vocalist of THE DEVIL’S BLOOD. Farida already accomplished several collaborations since THE DEVIL’S BLOOD split (she recorded with HERETIC, DEATH ALLEY, GRIFTEGARD and some more), but this is the first song completely sung by her as a guest.
The great Farida “The Mouth of Satan” Lemouchi, will be featured in an extended interview contucted by MetalEyeWitness.com a few months ago. It was one of the very few that she has done talking about her brother Selim and the end of THE DEVIL’S BLOOD, plus her vocal duties with THE WHITE FACES (a special cover band of Roky Erickson’s music). In the meantime, check out the conversation MetalEyeWitness.com conducted with mastermind Selim Lemouchi before his saddened depature with the purpose of discussing the split of THE DEVIL’S BLOOD and the release of SELIM LEMOUCHI & HIS ENEMIES “Earth Air Spirit Water Fire”.
