History

The band was formed in 1977 as Lucifer and appeared on the Metal for Muthas sampler. While the band's debut is hailed by many as a NWOBHM classic, the constant break-ups and reformations must have taken their toll as the band never quite matched the charm of the debut. Angelwitch is clearly Black Sabbath-inspired and may well have been an inspiration for later doom metal bands. The band made rare live appearances on both sides of the Atlantic in 1989. Resurrection is a compilation of older recordings, yet the band's latest incarnation was supposed to stay put and record! Indeed the band played a live show at 2000's Wacken Festival. Instead, early 2002 brought the news that the band has again split up following Heybourne's decision to move to the USA. Higham was busied with Euphoria and Shadow Keep, while Wicks sang for a reformed Tygers Of Pan Tang! The band was heard from again the August of 2002 when the year 2000 line-up got back together supposedly inspired by the recent death of Samson front man Paul Samson. Former keyboardist/guitarist Myk Taylor died of cancer in 2003. Angel Witch would release a new album, called As Above, So Below, on March 20th, 2012 through Metal Blade Records. In addition to Heybourne, the band was Palmer and Prestridge.
