Rating:
7.5
Satan's Host began as a respectable blasphemous heavy metal outfit. Then they broke up. Then they reformed, blasted the world away with their Satanic-themed blackened death metal onslaught, then set out to release By The Hands Of The Devil.

Harry Conklin of Jag Panzer fame is back manning the mic, and his piercing clean vocals dominate the album. The instrumentation is typical of a heavy metal album, but Patrick Evil apparently forgot his pick at home and had to use one of Abbath's, and the Evil Hobbit was dreaming of Inferno before the recording process, making for a blatantly black metal influenced heavy metal opus.

Rating: 10 This album is tremendous, absolutely awesome, nice mix of black and heavy metal , I don't have favorites (ummm maybe Fallen Angel?) all the songs stand out, well! with Bleeding Hearts Of The Damned resting a bit the disc =). Without doubt one of the albums of the year.

Rating: 8 Really cool power metal (not the flowery kind, the USPM kind). Though the lyrics are a bit campy... But that doesn't detract from anything. Far better that anything Jag Panzer has put out recently.

BTW, they also have a new album out as well, consisting of stuff from their previous albums rerecorded (also vocal lines have been rewritten for The Tyrant).

Yeah, that one. My only gripe about that one is that there aren't more songs from "Metal From Hell".

The first album, "Metal From Hell", is great. A small warning though: it has pretty bad production.

Yeah, that The Beatles cover song is awesome. Which is kinda surprising, because usually The Beatles covers suck.

Yeah, i can't wait either hehe =) but try with the last after this in 2011: CELEBRATION For The Love Of Satan also highly recommended, very good, also with Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin on the vocals.
