Next to the tragically under-performing Diamond Head, Angel Witch may just have been the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement's greatest disappointment. The natural talents of bandleader Kevin Heybourne were so abundantly obvious and his band's 1980 debut album so categorically spectacular that only Steve Harris and his Iron Maiden appeared more poised for certain stardom, thus making Angel Witch's stunningly sudden career collapse that much harder to swallow.

The song writing has progressed on " As Above, So Below " and tends to have more complex with longer songs than their previous albums. It is not a progressive album, but the songs sound like they had more thought put into them. And of course this makes sense because they had so much time to write the album, so anything less would have been disappointing . Lyrics - 9 Angel Witch lyrics have always fit their image quite nicely. The lyrics on this album follow a similar theme to their previous albums. Expect fantastical, often witch-related lyrics that you are not exactly sure what they are talking about. But its the music that really matters.
