After two excellent albums, one revelatory EP, and a handful of singles, Dutch occult rockers The Devil's Blood posted a typically terse statement on Facebook this morning, announcing the band is no more:
As of the 22nd of January 2013 The Devil´s Blood has returned into nothingness.All planned Rituals will be cancelled.No interviews will be done.Consummatum est.
Not very long ago the band had been confirmed for two special performances at Roadburn 2013 in Tilburg, Netherlands in April, but the festival has confirmed that those sets have indeed been cancelled.
It was a short but impressive run by the band led by guitarist Selim Lemouchi and his sister, singer Farida. Come, Reap, The Time of No Time Evermore, and The Thousandfold Epicentre left striking impressions on those who heard them, and at least we have that. Here's a clip of the band performing "Christ or Cocaine", one of their best songs:

The excellence and overall amazing songwriting will be sorely missed. This band had and still remains a big influence to me. Sad to see them go, we had one hell of a run though. With any hope they will work it out and get back at it. Praise and all hail The Devils Blood!!
