2020 - Power (early)/Black/Death (later) from United States
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! After the departure of original vocalist Harry "Leviathan Thirisen" Conklin, SATAN'S HOST recruited new vocalist Eli L.C.F. Elixir and embarked on the bands second era. Exemplified by a revamped and modernized sound, SATAN'S HOST reached beyond the realm of basic Heavy and Power Metal. Incorporating modern Death Metal and Black Metal, they formulated a new style which suited new vocalist L.C.F. perfectly and heralded them to the top of the 2000's burgeoning Black Death Metal scene. This second era of SATAN'S HOST recorded 5 legendary albums - 2000's "Archidoxes of Evil", 2004's "Burning the Born Again...", 2006's "Satanic Grimoire: A Greater Black Magick", 2008's "Great American Scapegoat 666" (still considered by many to be their best album) and finally 2009's "Power ~ Purity ~ Perfection...999". Each album an epic mix of Death, Black, Thrash and classic Heavy Metal anthems filled with catchy sing-along choruses, shredding lead guitars, catchy rhythms and over-the-top blasting drums. While "Archidoxes of Evil" was recorded in 2000, it was never officially released except for CDr's sold by the band themselves at shows and online. Moribund Records is proud to finally make this cult classic album officially available, completely remastered from the original source tapes and with brand new cover art! As an added bonus, we have included a newly re-recorded version of the fan favorite, "Nightside of Eden"! The foundation of the classic "2nd" era of American Heavy Metal Royalty SATAN'S HOST - One of the MOST IMPORTANT bands in Heavy Metal History!
