Download- Angel Witch (1981)

Metal is heavy, heavy is metal
These british blokes should need no further introduction, if you’re into this type of music you’ve heard it before. If you have not… then thats your bad!

Nobody else can see you the same way as myself
Fly high and touch the sky, you’re the angel I adore
If only you could feel for me that I feel for you
Why do you ignore me, angel, why can’t I go with you

You’re an angel witch, you’re an angel witch
You’re an angel witch, you’re an angel witch

The more love I feel for you, the more you fade away
Why can’t you come and love me, do I have to stay this way
I’m going to go insane if nothing happens soon
I look out at the night to see your shadow by the moon

You’re an angel witch, you’re angel witch
You’re an angel witch, you’re angel witch

Walk through the forest I can feel that you’re there
Why do you run away?
I’d never hurt you, I’d never hurt you
That’d be the last thing that I’d do

You’re an angel witch, you’re an angel witch
You’re an angel witch, you’re an angel witch

Track of the day: Guns and LSD by Megaton Leviathan

The Witchfinder has no limits when it comes to ugly album covers.
”Tits, swords, witches” seems to be the theme here… I mean what more could a 15 year old ask for? Adolescent violence, drug abuse, love on smack, seems resonable. It’s the NWOBHM!
Well anyway, the Witchfinder General is yet another unsung legend thats managed to reach cult status within it’s own genre, that is to say doom metal. This is their second album, it’s not as great as their first, but still I’m imposing it on you dear reader because I think that it deserves some attention non the less!


They started out in the late 70’s and are held up as one of the biggest influences on doom metal, sure not as big as Black Sabbath.. but still. They got their name from the movie Witchfinder General wich I have yet to see.

I get there and I find you under our favorite tree
I can smell the blossom, and hear the buzzing bee

I sit down right beside you and I look into your eyes
Feel a deep emotion as you look onto the skies

hehehe…

Track of the day: Reynardine by The Fairport Convention
