Thank God for that. I thought it was just my eyes.
I've just had an eye test and am getting new glasses fitted tomorrow Wink

I think those are all from various Rockin'f magazines, I want to collect some of those magazines in one piece at some point. Tongue

Anywway, the resolution makes it impossible to read it.

I kept putting off buying the 2009 CD re-issue of the first album just to realize today that all of a sudden it is fully sold out and used copies went premium. Darn.

Good thing I bought it two years ago. I mainly did it because the original vinyl remains stupidly expensive. Definitely not selling my copy anytime soon (I enjoy this band).

There is a new interview in Burrn Japan with Kiichi.To sum it up:
Kiichi was always a bassist, they just couldn't find a singer for Sabbrabells. In other words, he becoming the bassist of GISM was nothing earth-shatteringly radical.
He pretty much hates Sabbrabells and does not even have their albums anymore. He finds the music, the lyrics, production way too weak.
The debut album only had 1000 copies because they told the label not to do anymore pressings, cause they disliked it and or wanted to focus on touring.
The reason why the band did not last long is that they never had a producer, so they never had anyone to guide them to the next level. Well, they themselves refused to have one, so it was totally their fault.
They never ever said that they are a satanic band, that was a label that came from outside.
The sole reason why the band started was them hearing Heaven and Hell.
There are no plans for the future as of now, but who knows?

Interesting info.

I would say though, bands kinda get the occult label thrown at them naturally when they place a flipped crucifix in their logo, I'm a little surprised he was surprised by it. Tongue

I'm also impressed they managed to go major with King Records despite never actively trying to do so, nor ever having a designated producer for their works.

That explains why they'd re-recorded a few old songs on the second album, which does have improved production values. People are fixated on the illustration of the smirking demon, because of its iconic status. The next two albums don't have illustrations as impressive as the first, but I do notice less of an "evil" image this time around. The inverted cross on the Dog Fight EP is probably the only strain of "evil" since then.

Crowley and Seikima II definitely have more in common when it comes to the occult, although they both laughed about it while playing along to the gimmick.

Sabbrabells are not any more satanic or evil than what Dio was when he recorded Holy Diver.

Anyway, Sabbrabells rehearsing.
