Angel Witch was formed in 1977, originally under the name Lucifer, and was initially composed of guitarist and vocalist Kevin Heybourne, guitarist Rob Downing, drummer Steve Jones, and bassist Barry Clements. Lucifer split and Steve Jones joined up with Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) to form Speed. The remnants of Lucifer became Angel Witch. Their first song to achieve mainstream popularity was Baphomet, which was included on an infamous compilation Metal for Muthas. This song drew a fair amount of attention to the band. In 1980, Bronze Records picked up the band and they soon proceeded to record and release their debut album, self-titled Angel Witch. In 2011, Angel Witch's line included founding member, vocalist/guitarist Kevin Heybourne, former Carcass axe-man Bill Steer, along with bassist Will Palmer and drummer Andrew Prestidge . Angel Witch is very active again on the touring/recording front and are enjoying renewed interest from a new younger audience eager to embrace one of the true innovators of pure Heavy Metal!
