With a lineage dating back to 1977, South London's Angel Witch were leading lights of a now legendary movement known as the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal that saw their path interwoven with the likes of Iron Maiden, Saxon, Samson, Praying Mantis, the Tygers Of Pan Tang and countless more.

Unlike a great many of the groups with whom they shared stages their style was dark, uncompromising and heavy; a perfect complement for the sword & sorcery-themed lyrics of songs such as White Witch, Gorgon and Angel Of Death no wonder Geoff Barton of Sounds magazine once memorably described their bludgeoning sound as: "the first Black Sabbath album played through a cement mixer".

A brand new ANGEL WITCH studio album!! Produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost/The Gates Of Slumber).

A triumphant return to the classic NWOBHM style of heavy metal that Angel Witch are most respected and acknowledged for.

"As Above, So Below" is unquestionably the finest thing to bear the band's name since the first, iconic release.

Its contents unite newly-penned yet timeless-sounding material such as "Geburah", "The Horla", "Brainwashed" and "Upon This Cord" with four long-lost tracks from the classic-era.

"Dead Sea Scrolls" and "Witching Hour" both date back to 1983/84, whilst "Into The Dark" and "Guillotine" are older still.

Both were live favourites during Angel Witchs late-1970s heyday, indeed "Guillotine" was actually intended to have appeared on the Angel Witch album.

Limited deluxe vinyl. Guaranteed major rock press features, reviews and advertising globally.

The live line-up of Angel Witch now also features legendary British metal guitarist Bill Steer of CARCASS fame
