Satan are a classic NWOBHM band from England. Born in 1979, they’ve operated under the names Pariah (after religious protestors burned Satan tour t-shirts in front of venues) and Blind Fury, and with multiple line ups but are best known as Satan, steered by Steve Ramsey and Russ Tippins. On their debut album, Court in the Act, Satan broke the mold of NWOBHM by mixing in elements of nascent speed/thrash metal genres, making them groundbreaking in the 1980s. Satan influenced bands in the Bay Area thrash scene, including Metallica.  Relive the early days of metal at Satan’s first MDF appearance!
