He only needed that one record to set a fire that influenced and inspired countless bands through thirty years of killer metal!!! A legend in our underground, he brought the punk to metal and changed it forever.
Running from shadows
Blinded by fear
The horror of nightfall
Is ever so near
I slowly surround you
As terror sets in
Are you afraid of the night

The demo you’ve been waiting for from the true masters of mayhem, featuring their new vocalist, Maniac: DEATHCRUSH. This is what you can expect to hear on the demo of the year: «Witching Hour», «Pure Fucking Armageddon», and a special intro by the master of mysticism, Conrad Schnitzler. This is THE demo of 1987 – death crushing heaviness churned into the frenzy of chainsaw velocity!

The increasingly popular (from 10 special releases in 2008 to over 400 last year) Record Store Day marks it’s sixth year this Saturday. Usually not much of interest relating to underground metal, and in general this year is no different, however some classic metal recordings are getting a limited edition vinyl release, so we have attempted to stock a few Record Store Day releases, all listed below.
Each of these are limited to 1000 worldwide, with only 250 made available to the UK.
Important to say, these are all legitimate copies, not from participating shops and resold (which happens a lot). We made sure these copies were ordered in only after physical shops took their stock.

Burzum – Burzum / Aske (White/Black/Grey splatter vinyl)
Burzum – Det Som Engang Var (50/50 White/Grey colour)
Burzum – Filosofem (Clear/White/Grey/Brown splatter vinyl)
Burzum – Hvis Lyset Tar Oss (White/Black/Grey splatter vinyl)

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.
Just down the road, and 31 years ago, the second East Anglia Rock and Blues Festival took place in Mildenhall, Suffolk.
Held in the Mildenhall Speedway grounds on Saturday July 24th, the festival featured: Saxon, Magnum, Samson, Angel Witch, S.O.S.-Berni Marsden, and Stampede. It was attended by locals and a big group from the US Air Force stationed in RAF Mildenhall (still there and active) — the influence of these bands would be felt again back in the US the next year with the thrash explosion!
The Angel Witch set has been officially released by Mausoleum as “Angel of Death: Live at East Anglia Rock Festival”, and is available from us now. These recordings were previously released as “’82 Revisited” in 97.
Excellent sound quality!! The Witch rip through their set and the crowd are into it throughout!
Songs by Angel Witch: Gorgon, Nowhere to Run, They Wouldn’t Dare, The Sorceress, Evil Games, White Witch, Angel of Death, Angel Witch (the encore).
