Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered reissue of this British hard rock band's self-titled sophomore album from 1971, now featuring two bonus tracks. Often compared to their contemporaries Black Sabbath and early Jethro Tull, Black Widow's cult following continues to grow 30 years after they disbanded.

Awesome album by the originators of Black/Doom Metal. I own the 1989 Repertoire label release but all the songs remain the same. Not as dark as Sacrifice but equally as good. This came out around 1971 and I would compare it to Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, Yes, and Jethro Tull. I highly reccomend this disc to anyone who loves early 70's Heavy/Progressive Rock.

What's really cool about Black Widow's second album is that it actually doesn't sound like EITHER Black Sabbath or Jethro Tull, and furthermore, this band has actually developed their own style. Sacrifice and this album sound like nothing else out there.

Oh sure, some of the flute solos might remind you of Jethro Tull, and *maybe* some of the guitar playing will remind you of Black Sabbath from either their debut or Volume 4 album, but truthfully, Black Widow stands apart from the rest with their interesting blend of folk, hard rock, and just a touch of evil lyrics to give them a distinct sound.

"Tears and Wine" might recall "In Ancient Days" from their Sacrifice album, but only slightly (and for just a few moments in the beginning of the song). After that, you're treated to a very melodic, eerily quiet, and tastefully played keyboard jam, before the song breaks out into a *scorching hot* guitar jam. Imagine the guitar playing from Led Zeppelin's "How Many More Times" extended for twice as long and TWICE as heavy, and that might give you an idea what this particular guitar solo is like. I love it.

"Poser" has a funky rhythm that reminds me of a certain Allman Brothers song, however, the difference is that the Black Widow song has a really melodic flute jam that eventually breaks out into some tastefully played keyboard and guitar playing. A magnificent song, and because of how often I admire jams, this just might be my favorite song here.

It should be noted that what Black Widow was doing for this album is somewhat abandon their evil gimmick in favor of doing what they do best- write memorable half folk/half blues rock jams.
