5.0 out of 5 stars life sentence, satans return 12 Jun 2013
By kevin
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
life sentence is a must for any rock /metal fan from the opener ,time to die through to another universe there is no weakness, no fillers it is classic ,my favourite tracks are incantations,seige mentality, tears of blood and time to die lyrics are well written and the twin guitar attack is as better than most of their peers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 12 July 2013

A long awaited new release from Satan, it has been 30 years but well worth the wait with the original band members recreating the feel of their first Album. **************

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Court in the Act 8 Oct 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Of all the NWOBHM revamps of recent years, this is one of the best. Exactly the same lineup as their 1983 masterpiece that is always very hard to get hold of. The band is tight and powerful, the songwriting is excellent, sounding both contemporary and authentic.

The highlight for me is 'Tears of Blood', such angry but mournfully direct twin guitar from Steve Ramsey and Russ Tippins, it gets me every time. Every old school metal fan needs to hear this, as well as any other morbidly curious metal heads.

This is an un-criticisable classic, a thrashing experience that no one will forget in a hurry.

2.0 out of 5 stars heard it all before 24 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
Okay they hare good musicians - but it's predictable, lacking any real quality. The vocals are poor. It's all samey...
I had a listen to this on the back of the book no Sleep Till Saltburn... But and I don't want to be cruel but if this is it after 30 years - then they shouldn't have bothered... It's bad enough the stones, purple et al not knowing when to give it. To quote their own song - this left me standing at the Cenotaph wall. two for musical ability.

5.0 out of 5 stars A soon to be classic 4 Sep 2013
By Krow - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best metal albums of 2013. 16 Sep 2013
By Craig Wisnom - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars 2013 Album of the Year! 1 Jan 2014
By Night Ape - Published on
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satan's triumphant return is pure NWOBHM energy 19 July 2013
By Justin G. - Published on
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal 7 April 2014
By Lute F. Potter - Published on
Format:Audio CD
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.
