CD Reviews

A compilation from the first 3 albums ...

"When I first heard Witchfynde I immediately associated them with Black Sabbath. Guitarist Montalo obviously listened a lot to what Mr Metal Riff had been doing since the early seventies ( just listen his guitar sound !). However, they're not just a copy. They 've always sounded a bit more 'commercial' than the Sabs. On this CD you find some songs from their first 3 albums (Give 'em hell - Stagefright - Cloak and dagger ) and in my opinion they could have done better than that. Songs like 'Am I doing the right thing', 'Big deal' and the beautiful slow 'Madeleine' are indispensable and do not feature on it. Then there's also the fourth album (Lords of sin), which I rate second best after 'Stagefright', and not a single track from it can be found on this CD. 'Lords of sin' also contained interesting live material from the first 3 albums, so ...?? Anyway, Witchfynde is a band for all Sabbath-sound lovers and if this were the only Witchfynde CD available, you still should buy it!"
Witchfynde - 'The Best Of Witchfynde' (British Steel)

"An affordable way for those who might be curious about this New Wave Of British Heavy Metal lesser-known band to listen to a good amount of their repertoire without having to purchase several discs. I (like you) realize imports are usually pricey. Total of sixteen tracks, lifted off their first three albums - 'Give 'Em Hell' ('80), the under-rated 'Stagefright' ('80) and 'Cloak And Dagger' ('83). In all honestly, Witchfynde is one of those metal bands that you might have to seriously give their music a chance to sink in. I mean, if you're a loyal fan of - say early Black Sabbath, Venom, Iron Maiden or maybe Budgie, I believe you should get as much out of this CD as I did."
