    Info: Here is the legendary Witchfinder General's 1983 release. It still stands as a powerful doom metal statement released within the confines of the equally legendary NWOBHM movement. There weren't too many bands in the scene attempting to emulate the sonic soundscapes of old Sabbath. The mighty Pagan Altar were the only other band that I can think of. Even the sound of Pagan Altar was a little more influenced by other 70s traditions than anything strictly Sabbath. Witchfinder General are as close to Sabbath as the NWOBHM gets, while still retaining the do-it-yourself ethic that made the NWOBHM so memorable. The arcane vocals of Zeeb Parkes really made this band stand out. My vinyl scans and the lyric sheet scans are included.

    I just went through this, listened to it, and removed all pops from it manually. I created a new link.

    This rip came from the original Heavy Metal Records vinyl issue. I have the Back On Black 180 gram reissue version of "Death Penalty." I would record it, but lost my ability to record vinyl. I still have all the equipment including my turntable, but I no longer have my CD-recorder. Most of my vinyl was recorded using a Sony direct-drive turntable into a CD-recorder. I recorded all of my cassettes directly into the input jack on an older Macbook. The newer Macbook that I have took away the input jack. I could still get a sound card for recording purposes, but most of my vinyl and cassettes I recorded back when I had the ability to do so. I may get a sound card in the future, especially if I get enough new vinyl that I want to record.
