Satan Cruel Magic - tour flyer - October 2018 - #33MO737ILGMS -

NWOBHM legends SATAN will kick off a short run of US live dates this week. The trek – which rolls from October 5th through October 14th – includes an appearance at the Frost And Fire IV festival in Ventura, California. See all confirmed dates below.

SATAN:
10/05/2018 Brick By Brick – San Diego, CA
10/06/2018 Frost And Fire IV – Ventura, CA
10/07/2018 Whiskey – Los Angeles, CA
10/08/2018 Elbo Room – San Francisco, CA
10/09/2018 El Corazon – Seattle, WA

10/14/2018 Voltage Lounge – Philadelphia, PA

SATAN will be touring in support of their Cruel Magic full-length, recently issued via Metal Blade Records. Bearers of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, movement and responsible for 1983’s seminal Court In the Act and 1987’s Suspended Sentence, SATAN makes it abundantly clear with Cruel Magic that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of ten tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild, and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015’s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

SATAN, some forty years on from their inception, has made an album that contains all your favorite elements in the traditional heavy metal style and offers them up in a way that will feel completely familiar to you, and yet take you down paths within this framework that you have not yet tread. And that, my friends, is its own (un)cruel magic.” – Metal Injection

SATAN – Signs With Metal Blade Records

From Metal Blade Records:

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of long-time running NWOBHM legends Satan (Band) to its roster.

The heavy metal quintet has signed a multiple album deal with Metal Blade and has just finished recordings for their tentative new album to be released during the second half of 2018!

Comments Satan: “Metal Blade is part of Satan’s past and we are super excited for it to be part of our future. It seems so fitting, it’s hard to imagine another label that could give us a better platform for our music today.”

While standard bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83’s seminal Court In the Act and ’87’s Suspended Sentence, with their tentative new album Satan make it abundantly clear that in 2018 they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015’s mighty Atom By Atom, in the process displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Having reunited in 2012 and returned to touring duty, Satan – comprised of six-stringers Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey, bassist Graeme English, drummer Sean Taylor and vocalist Brian Ross – once more proved their collective mettle with 2013’s Life Sentence and follow-up Atom By Atom; both records critically acclaimed and maintaining the high standards of their earlier releases. With such a powerful collection in their hands the band were unsurprisingly eager to take it on the road, and they once again had successful tours and festival runs in Europe, North America and South America, culminating with a slot opening for Pentagram in Helsinki, which Tippins counts as a true honor.

Satan will unleash their latest batch of classical Heavy Metal songs in the second half of 2018. Be prepared for one of the best Metal albums of the year and stay tuned for more information about it!

Satan - Live Sentence Tour - 2014 - promo flyer - #10001

Legendary NWOBHM band SATAN will kick off its first U.S. tour tonight at Black Bear Bar in Brooklyn, New York. The influential Trad Metal pioneers will spend the next six days gracing North American stages in support of their 2013 comeback album, Life Sentence. Dates are as follows:

4/11 – Brooklyn, NY @ Black Bear Bar

4/12 – Montreal, QC @ Katacombes

4/13 – Worcester, MA @ Ralph’s Rock Diner

4/14 – Philadelphia, PA @ Kung Fu Necktie

4/15 – Richmond, VA @ Strange Matter

4/16 – Baltimore, MD @ The Metro Gallery

SATAN is a heavy metal band originating from Newcastle, England in 1980, known as part of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement. Though generally obscure throughout their career, the band is considered influential for playing a form of proto-thrash metal that was fairly advanced by the standards of the early 1980s.

Their 1983 debut album, Court In The Act, is now widely acclaimed and regarded by many as the pinnacle of their career, during which the band’s line-up underwent a number of personnel changes and even changes in band name, releasing albums under the name of BLIND FURY and PARIAH, before folding in 1990. Guitarist Steve Ramsey and bassist Graeme English went on to found folk metal band SKYCLAD, while vocalist Brian Ross reformed his original band BLITZKRIEG.

SATAN remained inactive until re-assembling for a one-off gig at Germany’s Wacken Open Air in 2004, and finally reunited in their original Court In The Act line-up for 2011’s Keep It True festival. The band performed at several european festivals in 2011 and 2012 and have announced more festival shows and even a new album for 2013, to mark the 30th anniversary of Court In The Act‘s release. Bow to your knees, SATAN was back with its new album Life Sentence, released in April 2013 on Listenable Records.

Life Sentence was featured on many a “Best Of 2013” lists, and has been heralded as one of the best comeback album of the decade.

SATAN “LIFE SENTENCE” – SATAN REIGNS ONCE AGAIN!

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

SATAN – On June 18th, 2013, NWOBHM legends, SATAN, returned with a new studio album: Life Sentence (Listenable Records). This sensational comeback album from SATAN is their first since 1987’s Suspended Sentence. SATAN has become one of the best comeback stories of 2013 and have solidly proved it to me with ALL ten songs on Life Sentence.

Each time I listen to this new SATAN album, I marvel at the quality of the musicianship, vocals and songs. Life Sentence is a complete SATAN package! Lyrically ominous and invitingly dark is this album; with haunting vibes that seems to cast a hypnotic Metal spell on my brain, which to me, makes SATAN so significant within this pioneering and sacred Metal genre that they helped bolster so many years ago.

SATAN delivers their retrospective Metal sound with authority; a sound that numerous newer bands are trying to recreate today. The NWOBHM was and forever will be an era of profound importance in Metal history; SATAN’s Life Sentence is a magnificent reminder of just that. With history aside, this new album from SATAN unleashes an enormous wave of relevancy; accentuating that their Metal sound is indeed timeless.

I can easily label Life Sentence as a guitar-driven album, with guitarists Steve Ramsey and Russ Tippins leaving me helpless in numerous momentary lapses of Metal awe. Vocalist Brian Ross sounds excellent, tapping into his melodic and falsetto strengths. Listening to Brian Ross take command of the song is unreal. Graeme English on bass and Sean Taylor on drums are a non-stop force of Metal thunder! Whoa.

Siege Mentality, CenotaphTestimony and the title track are just four out of ten kick-ass songs that I could carry on about for another five hundred or more words. My Metal brethren who’ve already gotten into Life Sentence should surely share in my Metal passion I’ve expressed here. For those others in my Metal family who’ve not yet picked up this new SATAN album… you absolutely must!! Life Sentence is without question, one of the finest Metal albums released in 2013. SATAN reigns once again!

Metal be thy name.
