New Wave of British Heavy Metal Legends SATAN have recently inked a deal with France's Listenable Records.
The band is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to an album entirely of new material written over the last 18 months. This is the culmination of a process that began when the original Court In The Act album line-up got together for an exclusive 'one-off' reunion show at Germany's 'KEEP IT TRUE' Festival last year.
This line-up had not performed together in 28 years. The band was somewhat overwhelmed with the response - ten minutes into headliners' CRIMSON GLORY's set the crowd could still be heard chanting for SATAN!
SATAN immediately booked more shows in Germany, Holland, Belgium, & London, and have since kept in close contact with each other, writing songs and making demos.
The new album, to be titled Life Sentence is scheduled for release in the spring of 2013. The full track listing is as follows:
Time to Die
Twenty Twenty Five
Tears of Blood
Fittingly, this will mark the 30th anniversary of their greatly acclaimed debut Court In The Act. The new album will also feature the same line-up that appeared on that now-classic piece of metal history.
