Satan are a band from England that was part of the NWOBHM movement with a musical style on this recording being power/speed metal with some thrash elements and this is a review of t heir 2013 comeback album "Life Sentence".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that are in the mid 70's early 80's speed/power/heavy metal vein with some proto thrash elements being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very old school and melodic sounding classic metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used on the last song to bring a power ballad feeling to the album.
Vocals are mostly clean singing heavy/power metal vocals with a brief spoken word part being utilized on one song, while the lyrics cover dark, occult and sci fi themes, as for t he production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and old school sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding comeback album from Saran and if you are a fan of NWOBHM, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Twenty Five Twenty Five" "Incantations" "Tears Of Blood" and "Personal Demons". RECOMMENDED BUY.
