Witchfinder General are a doom metal band from
Stourbridge, England. They were part of the New Wave of British Heavy
Metal scene and have been cited as a major influence on the doom metal
genre. Death Penalty is the debut album by NWOBHM band Witchfinder
General. It was released in 1982 on Heavy Metal Records. The album
received some criticism for the cover photograph, which featured topless
model Joanne Latham. The photograph had been taken in the yard of St
Mary the Blessed Virgin Church in Enville, Staffordshire, without the
permission of the local Reverend. The album was originally released on
LP and picture disc and was later reissued on CD. Pictured on the cover
is Phil Cope, Zeeb Parkes, Graham Ditchfield and a member of the then
Road Crew. While Peter Hinton is credited with producing this recording
the writers Phil Cope and Zeeb Parkes always felt the credit should have
gone to the engineer Robin George.
