SATAN

Bio: 

Satan are a heavy metal band originating from Newcastle, England in 1979, 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/speed metal that was fairly advanced by the standards of the early 1980s.

Their line-up has undergone a number of personnel changes and even changes in band name; for a time the band was called Blind Fury, putting out one album, 1985's Out of Reach, under that moniker before reverting back to Satan. In 1988 the group changed its name again to The Kindred and then yet again to Pariah, releasing two albums under that name before folding in the early 90's. In 1998 Pariah released another album. The band's shifting lineup has included members of many other heavy metal bands such as Blitzkrieg, Rough Edge, Pariah, Atomkraft, Avenger, Persian Risk, Cronos and Battleaxe. In 1990, Steve Ramsey (guitar) and Graeme English (bass) together with singer Martin Walkyier of UK thrash metal band Sabbat founded folk metal band Skyclad.

Satan performed a one-off gig at Germany’s Wacken Open Air in 2004 and finally reunited in their original Court In The Act line-up in 2011. The band performed at several european festivals in 2011 and 2012 and announced more festival shows and a new album for 2013. The new album, to be titled Life Sentence, is scheduled for release April 29 (Europe)/May 21 (U.S.) 2013 via Listenable Records.
