I really don't know what to do with this band. The music on their debut is great in my opinion, but these vocals are so terrible. Songs like "Sweet Danger" or "Confused" are just pure crap. I don't know about the later releases, but I heard nothing good about them.

Besides this, I don't know anybody who actually really likes them, but still it is common sense that they were an important band of the NWOBHM.

Extermination Day is their best song and you can hear cleary the influence they had on Celtic Frost (riffing). It's featured on this collection of early material, which beats the debut easily:

Awesome band! As far as over or underrated, it's hard to tell. Most people I know have never heard of them.

Angel Witch is one of the best bands of all time. I wouldn't be surprised if many people here disagreed with that, however, given the general musical focus on extreme metal.

You really should. Most of the songs later appeared on the debut, but the old versions are much heavier/rawer and with less annoying vocals. The influence of Black Sabbath is much more obvious.

I agree about the terrible vocals on 'sweet danger' and 'confused'... but I think those vocals are the only miss-steps on the entire album. The vox are pretty well done on all the other songs.

"Atlantis" is one fucking killer track....proto thrash at its finest,as well as "Angel of Death".

I have this live-album from 1990 too, a later line-up but only old songs. No offense to UK, but the accent on the speeches between the songs is just hilarious.

Highly overrated just because of their occult image. They can┤t play. The singer is fucking awful.

I think the album is ok. Nothing more, nothing less.
I mean, it's good, but falls through compared to Cloven Hoof, Court in The Act, Power Games, Lightning to The Nations and other NWOBHM-albums.

Love the S/T! Tried listening to Screamin' And Bleedin', but it wasn't nearly as great as the S/T. If the material after SAB is just as bad, I'll just keep sticking with the S/T.
