English NWOBHM legends Satan release 2nd single, “Into the Mouth of Eternity”

– August 8th, 2018 –

Artwork by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth, Sodom)

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Cruel Magic, the new album by English NWOBHM legends Satan! For a preview of Cruel Magic, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=3YVFKzSgT4I to stream the 2nd single, “Into The Mouth Of Eternity”!

Satan comments about the new single: “Playing this song in rehearsals is such a rollercoaster, and it’s obvious already that it’s going to be part of the Satan live show for some time to come. This song has been in the making since 2014 and we are so excited to finally unleash it on the new record. It’s our album opener, so turn up the volume and hold on!”

Afterwards, head over to metalblade.com/satan, where you can watch the video for the first single, “The Doomsday Clock”, as well as pre-order Cruel Magic 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)
–180g black vinyl
–clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–red/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–water blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–steel grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – US 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
7. Death Knell For A King
8. Who Among Us
9. Ghosts Of Monongah
10. Mortality
