Satan’s Host – “CELEBRATION: For The Love Of Satan – 25th anniversary album”

Satan’s Host – “CELEBRATION: For The Love Of Satan – 25th anniversary album” (Moribund Records)

Holy Fuck!! This must be one of the cult bands of all cult bands of all time LOL! Formed in 1977, Denver’s Satan’s Host featured none other than Jag Panzer’s Harry ‘Tyrant’ Conklin, although he was then known as “Leviathan Thisiren” – although that’s nothing compared to the rest of the band of Patrick Evil and “Evil Hobbit” Lopez LOL!! With equally cheesy song titles and OTT satan lyrics of ‘Metal From Hell’, ‘Satanic Grimoire’ and ‘Witches Return’ and a primitive diddly dee style of riffing not dissimilar to early Slayer, it might be easy to dismiss this. However, back then their debut “Metal From Hell” was a cult classic! And so it is in commemorating the 25th anniversary of this album that Conklin has once again rejoined his bandmates to produce 2 new songs as well as re-record songs from each and every album spanning the career of the band! With artwork from Joe Petagno (Motorhead), it’s a superb release not in the least because Conklin’s voice is still amazing after all these years, so with the modern technology available, it’s like the older material has truly been reborn as if Satan were indeed hosting it!
