SATAN'S HOST require no introduction; an American Metal Institution and one of the original Pioneers of both Thrash and Power Metal. Through the decades SATAN'S HOST have continually re-invented themselves, always remaining fresh, leading the pack of True US Heavy Metal!
Formed in 1985, throughout the course of their 33+ year career (of evil!) SATAN'S HOST have recorded and released 13 studio albums, several video’s and live albums, have extensively toured the world, headlined every major metal festival on earth, permanently etching their pentagram-sealed mark at the very top of the Heavy Metal echelon! US Heavy Metal Titans and Power Metal legends SATAN’S HOST have unquestionably earned their deserved place in Heavy Metal History!
SATAN'S HOST’s debut album, “Metal from Hell”, originally released in 1986 is a definitive and MANDATORY piece of classic Metal history alongside Slayer’s “Show no Mercy”, Mercyful Fate’s “Melissa” and Venom’s “Black Metal”! Combining Traditional Heavy Metal, Power Metal, the high-energy of 1st wave Thrash Metal and all the evil of hell, SATAN'S HOST set a standard that is rarely surpassed to this day! The album also created the original template for Power Metal, later capitalized on by now legendary bands like Trouble, Fates Warning and Halloween. An interesting piece of Metal and SATAN'S HOST trivia is the fact that “Metal from Hell” has been the most bootlegged album in Metal history!
The band recorded their second album “Midnight Wind” in 1987, but the album was never released due to label issues, and was lost in the annals of history – Until Now! Officially released for the first time ever, SATAN'S HOST deliver their magical second album “Midnight Wind” as it was originally intended to be. Completely remastered from the original source tapes, ensuring the best sound possible for this mandatory piece of Heavy Metal History! A Hellish opus filled with epic 'n' dynamic HEAVY METAL anthems, including a riveting cover of the American folk song “House of the Rising Sun” made popular by The Animals - No one is able to touch the sheer mastery and uniqueness of SATAN'S HOST!
