Following the successs of their recent South American tour, British heavy metal band SATAN are set to release their new studio album ‘Atom By Atom’ this October on Listenable Records. The LP features ten songs written by the band (including a collaboration with Angel Witch’s Kevin Heybourne). The tracklist runs as follows:
1. Farewell Evolution
2. Fallen Saviour
4. The Devil’s Infantry
5. Atom By Atom
6. In Contempt
7. My Own God
9. Bound In Enmity
10. The Fall Of Persephone
Recorded at Newcastle’s First Avenue Studios, the band finished the recording prior to flying out to Brazil and the mix & mastering were completed once again by Dario Mollo in Italy. Dario was at the helm for 2013’s highly acclaimed comeback album ‘Life Sentence’.
In fact the band have also recruited the same artist Eliran Kantor for the new LP cover. Guitarist Steve Ramsey said ‘We wanted to keep some continuity going with both the look and sound of this album. We’ve been working on the music for nearly two years now and I think people will definitely hear a progression from Life Sentence. I can’t really describe it but I promise you, these songs will speak for themselves.’
Release date is scheduled for early October. SATAN’s previous LP ‘Life Sentence’ took the metal world by surprise two years ago, and subsequent sales led to touring on an unprecedented level for this Newcastle based outfit.
Countries visited include Canada, USA, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, France, Spain, Italy. Belgium, Holland, & Austria, including opening spots for Iron Maiden and Rush. Another extensive tour is being lined up for late Autumn. Meanwhile SATAN will co-headline Headbangers Open Air fest in Germany next month.

The band begin rehearsals this week, having only just completed the recording of their new studio album, which is currently being mixed by producer Dario Mollo. After the commercial and critical success of 2013’s ‘Life Sentence’ expectations will be high for the new LP. Guitarist Steve Ramsey said “We were well aware that Life Sentence wasn’t going to be easy to top but I’m confident we’ve done it. We started writing almost two years ago and I believe this is our best material yet.”
Release is scheduled for Autumn 2015 on Listenable Records. As soon as production is complete the band will announce a release date, title, and track list.
Satan has been confirmed for For Fall Of Summer Festival, set to take place September 4-5, 2015 in Torcy (near Paris), France.
Just a quick spring news update: we’re currently busy recording the new album! Release is planned for September on Listenable Records. Like ‘Life Sentence’, the recording is done at the fine First Avenue Studios.
Mix and artwork will be done by the same great people as last time as well – Dario Mollo and Eliran Kantor! We’re going to record 10-11 songs out of the 15 we’ve written; as of today, 2 songs are finished and another 6 half done.
Work on the new LP doesn’t keep us from gigging though. On Saturday we played in Italy, in April it’s Belgium and Holland and in May we’ll return to South America for 5 shows! There are festivals confirmed in Germany and Finland over the summer, and we’re booking gigs for a European tour in October. See you on the road!
Satan has been confirmed for Open The Road Festival III, set to take place May 24, 2015 in São Paulo, Brazil.
