DN: 32 Years Today: BITCH – Damnation Alley (Don’t walk alone through the valley!)

Great EP of early US heavy metal (strong NWOBHM and Punk influence!!). Fronted by Betsy, BITCH contributed the second track on the original ’82 Metal Massacre compilation, and this EP was released later the same year by Metal Blade.

It was David Carruth in particular who was the NWOBHM spearhead of BITCH.  David would seek out whatever obscure import groups he could find and get the rest of the band excited about them.  Betsy remembers David getting the other members of the group into IRON MAIDEN, SAXON, and ANGEL WITCH early on.
