AllMusic Review by Eduardo Rivadavia
Between the raw Black Sabbath influences and its silly cover featuring another bunch of scantily clad models in medieval garb, Witchfinder General's second album, Friends of Hell, is very similar to its predecessor. Most of the songs navigate familiar Sabbath territory with special kudos going to the extended outro jam of "Quietus Reprise," and the memorable alternating riffs of "Love on Smack" and the title track. The intro drum beat of "Last Chance" is lifted straight out of "Iron Man," but the band's two hit single attempts, "Music" and "I Lost You," fall absolutely flat.
