SATAN’s Life Sentence Out Now in North America
SATAN has returned to North America! The NWOBHM legends are back in action with the stateside release of the highly-anticipated Life Sentence.
Out now on Listenable Records and available wherever quality metal is sold, Life Sentence is also streaming in full, courtesy of the folks at Terrorizer Magazine, at this location.
Life Sentence, SATAN’s first full-length since 1987’s Suspended Sentence, will mark the 30th anniversary of the band’s highly-acclaimed 1983 debut Court In The Act. The album feature the same line-up that appeared on that now-classic piece of metal history.
The cover art for the album was drawn by famed artist Eliran Kantor (SODOM, TESTAMENT, HATEBREED – www.elirankantor.com) and depicts a similar graphic concept as Court In The Act. Mixed by Dario Mollo at Damage Inc. Studio in Italy and tracked late last year at First Avenue in Newcastle, Life Sentence is a very strong uptempo heavy metal album that will undoubtedly become a metal classic.
SATAN are a heavy metal band originating from Newcastle, England in 1980, known as part of the NWOBHM 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. 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 new album for 2013, to mark the 30th anniversary of their debut release.
