5 stars I feel that this is a great compilation from a band that should have been bigge than they were. Black Widow was one of the greatest prog-metal bands of the early 1970's. It's a shame that they dropped the Satanic imagery that made them popular in the beginning. "Sacrifice" is one of my favorite albums of all time. The next two albums were great but I wish that they had not given to their label and management. I feel that they could have given a lot of bands like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath a run for the money had they had more support and weren't blacklisted from coming to America. It seems that a lot of "Satanic" bands did this schtick for one album, such as Coven and then dropped the imagery in favor of commercial success. Black Widow will always be just a footnote in rock history but will always be close to my heart.
Soulburn | 5/5 |
