Band of the Week: Angel Witch

This time's band of the week is Angel Witch, an underrated metal band from London, the metal nation that was the father of two other extremely awesome bands, Motorhead and Iron Maiden. They were also New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Their smooth. straightforward, and simple songs are one of the keys to their greatness, making it easy to know what the song is about. and if it's good. which it mostly is. Their songs are pointed toward mythical beings and places, and even if you aren't fond of their lyrics you'll get caught on with the many catchy riffs and solos. This cool band started in 1978, their first record though was in 1980, the same year Reagan ruined the united states and his footprint has stayed ever since. Anyway overall, "You're an Angel Witch, You're an Angel Witch."

  3. All is well with the world. I'm a new arrival to your blog...and it's so cool, I'm pinching myself to make sure it's real. As a special bonus, the German metal band Accept is playing in the background as I write this.

    GREAT WORK.

  6. I hate to say it, but the boobs on the cover of the self titled record drew me in. I was 12, so boobs were cooler than a lot of things then. Once I heard the songs, though... I was hooked. Helloween Keeper of the Seven Keys Part Two might be something you'd like... It's a pretty intense record.
