Now this should be interesting, it appears as though the legendary underground Metal band Satan will be embarking on their first-ever North American Tour thanks to the folks at BBQ Booking. The press release follows the super dramatic poster.
“BBQ Booking presents NWOBHM legends Satan and their first-ever tour of North America! Starts on April 11th at Black Bear Bar (formerly Public Assembly, 70 North 6th Street) in Brooklyn NY and wraps up at The Metro Gallery in Baltimore MD. Dates marked with * will feature BAT, the new band featuring Ryan Waste of Municipal Waste, Nick Poulos of Parasytic and Felix Griffin, formerly of crossover legends D.R.I. These shows will also be the very first for the band! Links to each show will be posted in the coming days so stay tuned”. Tickets can be purchased via Brown Paper Tickets and I suggest you act fast.

Satan is one of those bands that escaped my attention during their original heyday and with so many lineup and name changes going back and forth from either Blind Fury or Pariah and putting out albums under those monikers its easy to see how this could happen. Despite this musical faux pas, I have been enjoying the Hell (sorry I had to) out of their “Life Sentence” album on Listenable Records and am going to try my damnedest (man this is easy) to be a part of the show that will be taking place in Brooklyn. This is the same night as Carcass for the NYC Metal Scene but I think I can work out both events and bring you kind readers the full story and photographs if at all possible. You can learn more about the band via their official Wikipedia entry which is linked below.

Historically speaking there are only three albums out by the band under the name Satan and the original first album is VERY hard to find for a reasonable price and this seems true of the second release. Perhaps someone will be wise enough to remaster and re-issue these if we demand that it be the case enough.
