On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Cruel Magic, the new album by English NWOBHM legends Satan! The band have dropped the second single,“Into The Mouth Of Eternity.”[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YVFKzSgT4I?autoplay=1]
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!”
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. 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?”
