|WITCHFYNDE THE LOST TAPES Limited Coloured Vinyl LP
• After lying forgotten for 40 years WITCHFYNDE's demo recording from 1975 finally see release on deluxe
• The discovery of WITCHFYNDE's Lost Tapes illuminates a fascinating missing link in the history of British
heavy metal. In the lull between the Purple/Zeppelin/Sabbath revolution and the angry charge of punk rock
and NWOBHM, in the East Midlands county town of Derby, four lads came together to create a tentatively
progressive and intriguing new sound, and get heads banging in boozers all over the Peak District.
• Recording a 40-minute demo of original material in 1975, WITCHFYNDE were the unwitting spearhead of
the movement that was still a long way off being dubbed the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, and from the
plaintive, spacey opening of Grimoire, this earliest of artefacts is rather more nuanced and versatile than the
hallowed acronym NWOBHM traditionally suggests.
• Available on coloured vinyl!
