Here is the best old school heavy metal album released in a very long time. The band plays a very fast nwobhm style, with just a hint of punk influence. They started in the early 80s and they're definitely stuck in the past in the best way possible. If you love old school heavy metal this album will have you pumping your fist, singing along and going and getting your denim jacket out of storage. I cannot recommend this album enough and it's going to be a classic. It's a bit early, but its a safe bet this is one of the best metal albums of 2013, if not the best.

When I saw there was a reunion CD from the NWOBHM Satan, that got great reviews, I figured it would be worth picking up. I had what I believe are both of their prior CD's from decades ago, as well as releases from the portion of the band that morphed into Pariah, and of course the members that went on to create Skyclad had a very special place in my heart. But none of that prepared me for how magnificent this album was and how it blew me away. It had the strong melodies of NWOBHM, absolutely incredible song writing in both the vocal melodies and the incredible guitar runs, and yet it had more intensity. Every tune had both guitar leads that wouldn't let you go, and a passionate, powerful vocal chorus that became instantly memorable. For those who love classic and melodic metal of any form, this one is a must buy!!!

We've seen a lot of action from the old New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) bands lately. Angel Witch returned with a killer album last year, Diamond Head is touring regularly, Steve Grimmett is back in Grim Reaper (or a Grim Reaper at least), and now the classic lineup of Satan has returned with a new album, titled Life Sentence. It's only their third album overall, and their first in more than 25 years!

When some of these older bands put out new material, it either sounds tired or completely removed from the sound that made fans take notice of them in the first place. Not so with Satan. Life Sentence has all the energy of the classic Court In The Act album, is instantly recognizable as a NWOBHM offering, and is metal as, well, hell. The only noticeable difference is that the musicianship is tighter and the production is better. The album has fantastic riffing, great melodies and is heavy in all the right places. "Time To Die," "Tears of Blood" and the title track are standouts, but the whole album is killer (and at just 44 minutes, filler-free).

Life Sentence is a must-have for NWOBHM fans, especially fans of those early Satan albums. With this album, Satan also shows the new generation of traditional metal bands how it's done, rivaling even the youngest of the pack in terms of sheer energy. Long live the NWOBHM and hail Satan!

Note: If you order this disc directly from Amazon, be aware that they are sending you a CD-R and not the "real" CD release.

As a lifelong Metal fan I pride myself on knowing the odd bit of music trivia and many little known bands from the past, but I had never heard of Satan.

Satan was apparently part of the NWOBHM, released an album in 1983 then faded into obscurity... That is until 2013! I saw their reunion album on Terrorizer Magazine's top 50 releases of last year and decided to pick it up. I was blown away.

Terrorizer said Life Sentence was "a contender for best reformation album ever" and they weren't joking. The band sounds like they were cryogenicly frozen during the early 1980s and thawed out of hibernation to record this album some three decades later.

Satan boasts all of its original members who play and sound like they're in their 20s when logic dictates they are 30+ years past that! The twin guitar leads are fast, precise, nuanced and while drawing favorable comparisons to Iron Maiden, are uniquely Satan. The drumming and bass-work is superb and I swear the singer could have gone down as one of Metal's best had the band not vanished for thirty years!

A remarkable story and an amazing album.

Hail Satan!

One of the most pleasant surprises of this year, never mind my heavy metal loving life!

Satan's glorious comeback album "Life Sentence" not only exceeds expectations, it sets the bar stupidly high for all old-school metal bands attempting their own comebacks!

From start to finish, "Life Sentence" is old school heavy metal benefiting from a fresh modern production. Every song bleeds immediacy and commands your attention. It's the kind of music that makes you want to get up and move!

Fun frenetic guitar solos, clean, refreshingly well-sung vocals that never attempt absurd octaves (except on a few welcome occasions), great lyrics and hook after hook after hook makes this release a must-own for fans of any form of heavy metal.

It's a shame it wasn't on more year-end "best of" lists, because in my opinion, it deserves to top all of them.

I liked this album the first time I heard it, but after multiple listenings I absolutely love it. At first I compared it to early Mercyful Fate, which is not inappropriate, but with the resurgence of thrash and speed metal I find myself comparing it more to the likes of Hirax and other contenders in that arena.

I'm not going to wax contemplative on this, other than to say that if you love early MF but want something a bit faster, and are tired of bands that don't know that good music is all about the songwriting, then check this out. These guys have made the best speed/thrash metal album of the '10s.

Let me just throw out as a closer, if you love early MF as I do, the absolutely most bitchin' album of the new millennium is 'Final Sacrifice' by Noctum. More of an occult atmospheric aspect to the metal than what Satan offers, much like the original masters.
