Guest review by
Angel Witch is, to me, one of the biggest "what if" bands in heavy metal. The frequent changing of the lineup and delegation of vocal duties from Kevin Heybourne to others after their phenomenal debut resulted in two follow-ups that, while not altogether terrible, contained none of the energy, personality, or brilliance of the first landmark Angel Witch album. If only the trio had stayed intact, Angel Witch could very well be one of the most successful bands on the scene today. Who knows what other great works they were capable of back in their prime? Instead, we must remember them for this one-off masterpiece.

Are you serious?

100% positive. After listening to this album you will be Angry To Death. That's why it is a Death Metal Album.

Last week, I though Gamma Ray - Majestic was the worst album I have listened for the past 12 months, who know BoxCar Willy and Angel Witch immediately taken over the place this week. Finally there is another album having the same rate as BCW in my list.
(if I have a chance attending their concert, I will throw this CD I bought last week to stage. Fxxxxxx childish album, a piece of shit)

The genre itself isn't really new, but against such releases as Iron maiden's self titled album and Sabbath's 'Heaven and Hell' Angel Witch's debut stands very strong. The title track, 'Angel of Death' and 'Loser' are all brilliant examples of this band's unique sound.

Excellent debut album. 1980 was the golden year for N.W.O.B.H.M and this record is among Iron Maidens and Diamond Heads debut the best. I believe this is their best effort.

Bad English
Tage Westerlund
Only self titled song was good, basically boring and useless album whit bad sound and all bad, it needs kick out garaged teenage jeans demo era rebellion and re record it in proper studio whit proper work.
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Excellent album, I'm listening to it right now, after long long time, forgot how great it is.
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

I really love Free Man, but I can't consider this album a masterpiece.
We are just a moment in time
A blink of an eye
A dream for the blind
Visions from a dying brain
I hope you don't understand
