This page isn't about any of the Black Metal bands named Satan. Sorry.
No, this Satan is a member of the NWOBHM movement that started in the late 70s/early 80s with a sound leaning towards power/thrash metal, who managed to score themselves a cult following with their debut album Court in the Act.
Like the majority of their fellow New Wave bands, they didn't make it big, but have soldiered on through the years.
Band's name has gone through several changes, from Satan to Blind Fury in mid-eighties, then back to Satan, then to Pariah, and now back to Satan.
- Court in the Act (1983)
- Into the Future (1987, EP)
- Suspended Sentence (1987)
- Life Sentence (2013)
- Atom by Atom (2015)
As Blind Fury:
- Out of Reach (1985)
- The Kindred (1988)
- Blaze of Obscurity (1989)
- Unity (1997)
The court is now in session:
- Fun with Acronyms: "S.C.U.M." stands for Socially Condemned Undesirable Misfits.
- Horrible History Metal: "Trial by Fire" is about the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
- Last Note Hilarity: "S.C.U.M." and "Ice Man" both end with goofy stuff.
- Metal Band Mascot: The unnamed skeletal judge that appears on the covers.
- Name's the Same: One of their singers shared his name with Michael Jackson.
- Professional Killer: "Ice Man" is about a man of this profession.
- Rock Me, Amadeus!: Instrumental track "Fuck You" has a part of Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" in it.
- Theme Naming: Full-lenght albums under the name Satan are named after court terminology.
- This Is a Drill: "Calculated Execution" is about a driller killer who carries out unmotivated, calculated executions of "ultimate design".
