One of the best NWOBHM debuts, IMO. Satan is one of those bands that I think didn’t get their just due. I believe it had to due with the name of the band and the album artwork because this band isn’t about “Satan”. Vocalist Brian Ross left the band to form Blitzkrieg and the rest of the guys changed the name to Blind Fury with new singer Lou Taylor. The Satan moniker came back and was changed again after 1 album to Pariah.
Did you get all that? Confused?
I’ve been after this CD for quite some time. Saw it in the local shop for $15 back around the album’s CD release but I passed. Never saw another copy. The prices on Ebay vary: $75+ for the Japanese issue – $30+ for this issue. If you like Traditional Metal from the early 80s/NWOBHM, pick this up.
