Retro-Review: ‘Friends of Hell’ by Witchfinder Genral

Witchfinder General’s 1983 album Friends of Hell is for those who just couldn’t get enough of Black Sabbath’s sound from the early to mid 1970s.

Their flavor of doom metal, which really wasn’t thought of as a genre then, would satisfy the fans of the dark sounds that Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward churned out from Master of Reality in 1971 to Sabotage in 1975.

The dark guitar tones, crushing slow riffs and Ozzy-esque wailing vocals are all there.
