Satan – Court In The Act

leave a comment »

I’m not quite sure how I ended up hearing this album.  It was either through Kelz or Daniel.  It doesn’t matter, I owe one of them a great debt of gratitude for this one.  Satan were a NWOBHM outfit featuring Brian Ross on vocals (for this LP) who also spent time with Blitzkrieg.  Steve Ramsey ended up in Blind Fury, Pariah (UK) and Skyclad.

I don’t know what more to say about this album other than it absolutely rules and is definitely one of the best albums from that genre.  It’s one that I have been listening to since about 1986 and still can never grow tired of it.  Ross’ smooth vocal delivery and all of the backing music work perfectly together.  I’ve recommended this album to many people and those who have heard it always seem to fall in love with it.  If you’re into the the NWOBHM sound and like stuff like Blitzkrieg, Persian Risk and Tokyo Blade, you need to hear this album.  You shall not be disappointed, trust me.  Would I ever steer you wrong?  No.  Never.

It was a huge disappointment when I bought their follow-up albums Suspended Sentence and Into the Future.  The replacement singer was just awful and the music took a turn for the worse as well.

Enjoy!
