On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Cruel Magic, the new studio album by English NWOBHM legends Satan! For a preview of Cruel Magic, head over to: youtube.com/watch?v=2CcdlxBPyYk to stream the third single, “Death Knell For A King”!

For another preview of Cruel Magic, please visit: metalblade.com/satan – where you can watch the videos for the first two singles, “The Doomsday Clock” and “Into The Mouth Of Eternity”, plus pre-order the album in the following formats:


–ltd. Boxset (incl. Digipak-CD, excl. bonus-CD, excl. dead gold-marbled vinyl w/excl. bonus-LP, 75×75 cm flag, circular 12″ back patch, five A4 art prints, A4 photo card, numbered certificate)
–Digipak-CD (EU exclusive)
–CD
–180g black vinyl
–clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–red/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)

–yellow/ochre-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)

Bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83′s seminal Court In the Act and ’87′s Suspended Sentence, Satan make it abundantly clear with their upcoming new album that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015′s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Tracking the album at First Avenue Studio, they further demonstrated their trust and rapport with past collaborators, recruiting engineer Dave Curle and Dario Mollo to handle the mix, letting them handle the technical side of things so the quintet could focus all of their energies on giving the best performances. Confident in the songs they had written and how they wanted them to sound made the process a very easy one, walking out of the studio with a record of which they are understandably proud, and will reign supreme in the speakers and headphones of metalheads the world over when it drops in September. “We truly feel we’ve got it 100% right this time, the balance between considered content and reckless performance. We always break loose on stage so why not on record?”

Cruel Magic track-listing:
1. Into The Mouth Of Eternity
2. Cruel Magic
3. The Doomsday Clock
4. Legions Hellbound
5. Ophidian
6. My Prophetic Soul

Bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83′s seminal Court In the Act and ’87′s Suspended Sentence, Satan make it abundantly clear with their upcoming new album that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015′s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Having reunited in 2012 and returned to touring duty, Satan – comprised of six-stringers Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey, bassist Graeme English, drummer Sean Taylor and vocalist Brian Ross – once more proved their collective mettle with 2013′s Life Sentence and follow-up Atom By Atom, both records critically acclaimed and maintaining the high standards of their earlier releases. With such a powerful collection in their hands, the band was unsurprisingly eager to take it on the road, and they once again had successful tours and festival runs in Europe, North America and South America, culminating with a slot opening for Pentagram in Helsinki, which Tippins counts as a true honor.

Satan will unleash their latest batch of classic heavy metal songs in the second half of 2018. Be prepared for one of the best metal albums of the year and stay tuned for more information about it!

Infernal Tenebra Releases “The Seventh Seal” Video

The Croatian melodic death metallers from Infernal Tenebra have released a new music video for the song “The Seventh Seal.”

This is the first track off the album “As Nations Fall,” out now via Massacre Records. Directed and brought to life by Meisterwerk Productions and inspired by the album’s Gustavo Sazes-created artwork, the song features a ferocious sound crafted by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.

Director Igor Malecic comments: “After shooting at ten locations, five months of post-production and countless sleepless hours editing and rendering, the new video for the Croatian metal titans Infernal Tenebra, is here! The idea for the video was inspired by the cover artwork of the album, Plato’s cave and Orwell, with addition of the Cold War Doomsday Clock underlined by the biblical story of the opening of the seventh seal.”
