9 PRODUCTIONS announces the re-release of Denizens of Hell’s “Witching Hour”.

Black Pharaoh added, ‘This was the band that Chaoitus and I started and then left before I formed Providence, and the rest – as they say – is history. Denizens of Hell had one release, the sigle “Witching Hour” that was released in 1988.

We basically played a low-fi, simplistic style of Venom-worship, with simple but catchy riffs. This sounds pretty much like Hellhammer’s “Apocalyptic Raids” but with even rawer production and more inept playing.

Denizens of Hell, like Venom in the early days, were characterized by their inability to actually play their instruments, and I have to agree that this sort of simplicity and directness cannot be faked. Only a band of kids who are still learning to play could or would produce anything this raw and stripped-down. Artlessness, as the Japanese say, is the most difficult art.’.
