Satan is a British Heavy Metal band that was formed in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, in 1979. The band is known for its aggressive and fast-paced music, which has made them one of the most influential bands in the Heavy Metal genre.
The band was formed by guitarists Steve Ramsey and Russ Tippins, who were joined by drummer Sean Taylor, bassist Graeme English, and vocalist Brian Ross. The band's name was inspired by the controversy surrounding the Heavy Metal genre at the time, with many people accusing the music of being Satanic.
Satan released their first album, "Court in the Act," in 1983. The album was a critical and commercial success, and it established the band as one of the leading acts in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) movement. The album features some of the band's most well-known songs, such as "Trial By Fire," "Blades of Steel," and "Break Free."
The band's second album, "Suspended Sentence," was released in 1987. The album was a departure from the band's previous sound, featuring a more melodic and progressive style. The album was well-received by critics, but it did not achieve the same commercial success as the band's first album.
Satan disbanded in 1988, but the members continued to play music in other projects. In 2011, the band reformed and released a new album, "Life Sentence," in 2013. The album was well-received by both fans and critics, and it marked a return to the band's classic sound.
Satan's music is characterized by its fast and aggressive guitar riffs, powerful vocals, and intricate song structures. The band's lyrics often deal with themes of rebellion, anti-authoritarianism, and the occult. The band's music has been cited as an influence by many Heavy Metal bands, including Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth.
Satan's influence on Heavy Metal is evident in the fact that the band's music has been covered by many other artists, and the band's logo has become iconic within the genre. The band's influence can also be seen in the popularity of the NWOBHM movement, which helped to revitalize the Heavy Metal genre in the 1980s.
