Hey is anyone here into the band Satan? I found them on youtube by complete accident and thought it was pretty damn awesome! Another one of those NWOBHM bands that might be considered obscure when you compare to bigger names. I'm pretty old school and well versed in metal and I never heard them, I was blown away! http://youtu.be/j6G3K84tRH8 I'm trying to find a copy of Court In The Act that wont break the bank. Not an easy task! Any other fans or maybe someone that can offer insight on the band?

Re: Satan I love Court in the Act, one of my favorite NWOBHM albums. If you dig the album, check out Blitzkrieg, the band the vocalist Brian Ross went back to after the album. Most of them also did an awesome album as Blind Fury before returning to the name Satan for their second album. I've heard good things about their Pariah project, but that shit is really hard to find, even more difficult than Satan's albums. A couple of them also started Skyclad, the first folk metal band, and I absolutely love their early albums. Good bunch of musicians, check out everything they've done.

Re: Satan

Nice to see some action in here. Blut do you own the album? Have you seen in pressed on cd recently by chance??
Yeah, I grabbed it on eBay years ago, it's a CD pressing. I remember that The End Records had it a few years ago, but they might not now. Just make sure you don't buy it from Greek sellers as it will almost assuredly be a bootleg. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

I saw these guys in Chicago a few weeks ago. Holy fuck what an amazing show. Court in the Act truly is amazing, but do so check out their other two full-lengths. Life Sentence, their 2013 release, actually might be even better. Even managed to snag a photo with Brian Ross after the concert.

Life Sentence was seriously refreshing. Like the new Angel Witch one' date=' as well - what's with all these awesome, overshadowed '80s bands pulling out fantastic new records thirty years later?[/quote'] It does seem to be happening a lot, with bands like Hell, Oz, Raven, and others releasing quality material so long after their heyday.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
