On the 9th February 2013, four years ago last Thursday, we (Angel Witch) were in Bochum, Germany, on tour with Grand Magus.
In the dressing room Joseph and Tobias from the opening band Enforcer, played me the demo they had recorded with their other band CC Company and asked me if I’d be interested in putting it out for them.
And that was that! Bad Omen Records was formed….
Since then we have gone on to release records from Satan’s Satyrs, Wretch, Wytch Hazel, Spell and more… We even did a vinyl pressing of Witchfynde’s 1970’s demos – plus that CC Company demo came out as a 7” in the end.
The other day, reflecting on how four years can go past in the blink of an eye, I put together a few of my favourite tracks from the Bad Omen catalogue into a playlist.
Then I thought that I may as well give them away to anyone who wants to hear them.
I added a couple of unreleased smashers (Wretch pummelling their way through Motorhead’s “Sweet Revenge” and Wytch Hazel’s re-recorded version of their old favourite “Surrender”) and there you have it: DOWNLOAD HERE
I hope you like it,
