It's rare that an album's songs are all excellent and all stand on their own - the Angel Witch S/T is one of those.

As for the original question: Given the fact that it is highly regarded by some although not considered "influential" as far as the bigger picture goes, I'd have to say extremely underrated.

Diamond Head - Urrgghhh. Now there is a band I cannot stand. Had the misfortune of seeing them live twice. Not good. Angel Witch are far superior in my eyes[/quote]

When did you see them live?I saw them live recently and you can't call that line-up Diamond Head

I don't want to sound like a pretentious asshole, but this thread shows pretty well the generational gap between some people here. Questioning Angel Witch is not something I'd ever expect to read.
I'm now waiting for a thread criticizing Ozzy's vocal performances on the early Sabbath albums.

hahaha !! I've heard PLENTY of criticism of Ozzy's Sabbath input.
I don't want to derail the thread, but my view is this : Ozzy is a shitty singer, but he FITS with Sabbath.

criminally underrated, doesn't get the same praise that a band like Iron Maiden (blame the hipsters) gets.

Saw them at the Bloodstock Festival back in 2002 or 2003 and at the NWOBHM 25th Anniversary in 2005. Not that there is anything specifically wrong about them I just don't like them. An hour of my life each time I can't get back
