By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
If anyone went to the Hard Rock cafe in Edinburgh in the early 80s they would have witnessed a strange sight. Midway through the night the dance floor would empty of air guitar fiends, as a solo flute piped through the speakers. A man would then cavort inappropriately round the venue as "Come To The Sabbat" by Black WIdow played. I was that man, and that track opens this double CD.
Now this could have been a very interesting project. However, a history should be just that. And any CD which jumps from the bleak, dysfunctional, majesterial, but in no way occult, "Death Walks Behind You" by Atomic Rooster, Black Sabath and the aforementioned Black Widow, all from 1970, straight to the NWOBHM of 1980 fails in its mission. Missing a year is careless, but a whole decade?
So, in order to review this, it becomes necessary to ignore the reason for its existence. From the eighties we get the usual suspects - Venom (but not "Black Metal"), Angel Witch, Witchfynde etc. To be fair there's a fair number of pleasant surprises. Pagan Altar are a doom fuelled delight and worthy of rediscovering. I'd manage to blank Cloven Hoof from my consciousness after seeing them at their peak. But the full horror of Air, Fire, Water, Milk or whatever they claimed to be returns here in finest Spinal Tap fashion. Delightful! The rest of the eighties peter out, but then comes CD2 - the nineties!
Yup, corpse paint arrives, and with it, adolescent boys. Confused? I was never confused. Disc 2 actually works very well as a compilation, and skipping over the horror that is Cradle of Filth, does highlight some of the better genre acts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come to the Sabbat 10 May 2005
By The Beastmaster General - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Incredible collection of British satanic and occult music. The first disc covers '70-'89 and the second disc covers '90-'01. Highlights on the first disc include Angel Witch, Widow (super rare track), Witchfynde, Hell (another rarity), and Cloven Hoof. There are also some classics, like Sabbath, Black Widow, and Venom as well as some Thrash gems, like Onslaught and Warhammer (pre-Extreme Noise Terror and Napalm Death). Pagan Altar's song is a great Doom Metal track. There are no weak tracks here. From track 3 on it is pure HEAVY METAL (track 1 & 2 are not metal but still great songs). The only thing missing is a Witchfinder General track.

Disc 2 is pretty much all British black metal. Not really my cup of tea but a good overview of the British scene through the 90's.

This compilation is definitely worth picking up, even if, like me, you aren't interested in anything on the second disc. I ended up seeking out albums by almost every band on the first disc.
