SATAN’S HOST – Pre-dating God part 1 & 2
Satan´s Host started out way back in 1977 but did not debut with "Metal from Hell" in 1986. Their progression from pure heavy metal to death to power metal have taken them thru eight albums and now they reach the 10 album mark with two consecutive releases "Pre-dating God part 1 & 2". Both albums are very good and it´s nice to hear that Satan´s Host are back on their heavy metal (with an ounce of black/death/thrash) vibe. Espescially on the drums you can hear the harder influences.
The trio fires on all canons on both Part 1 & 2 and this text covers both releases since their quite familiar both in musical direction and production.
Personally I´ve never been that big of a Satans´s Host fan but I´ve given them some playing time now and then up upon the years and I must say that when they give it all in the heavy department with some formidable lyrics on top the shiver is not far away.
Both albums have as mentioned very many similarities so why they are not combined as one double album is strange. Anyway, this is good heavy metal that spans on many genre´s and after giving both albums a couple of spins I must say that they are not just good, but very good. Never heard of Satan´s Host, now is your double chance.
