5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive NWOBHM, 26 July 2005
This review is from: Angel Witch (Audio CD)
Possibly the best album to emerge from the NWOBHM scene. Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Kevin Heybourne was hugely underrated - in his composition and playing you can hear the technical thrash that Metallica & Megadeth were to have great success with. Versatile too - the restrained bluesy solo on 'Freeman' is stunning. This reissue is remastered and contains 10 bonus tracks. You get the 'Loser' single + the 'B' sides, the 'B' sides of the 'Sweet Danger' single and 'Baphomet', which was originally on the 'Metal For Muthas' compilation. The real jewel though is having the 4 track session from 'The Friday Rock Show' included - the versions of 'Sweet Danger', 'Angel Of Death' and 'Angelwitch' are far superior to the album versions, particularly the bass-heavy 'Sweet Danger'. The BBC managed to do justice to many of the NWOBHM bands in their sessions that the bands albums couldn't match; Witchfynde did a stunning session and I have yet to hear a better version of 'Transylvania' than the one Iron Maiden recorded for 'The Friday Rock Show'. Overall the remaster gives the album a bit of a kick and improves the 'pots & pans' drum sound that the original suffered with.
