Though Satan is regarded as one of the better metal bands to emerge from England after the peak of the NWOBHM, theirs is really a case of "deserved better". Their style of technical power metal was not in vogue in their country at the time, and their very name was misrepresentative of their style and image, so much so that three times they felt the need to change, in a constant struggle to define themselves. Rising up through the British local scene in the early 80's, they acquired standout vocalist Brian Ross from Blitzkrieg in time for their excellent debut, Court In The Act. But this formation did not last long, as two years later the band changed to Blind Fury with a new vocalist, releasing one album under that name that is noticeably different in style from anything else they'd done before or since. Back to Satan two years later, another vocalist change, and in 1987 the fine Suspended Sentence album was released. Finally, they put the Satan name to rest for good, keeping the same lineup but changing to Pariah, where they survived for a few more years before giving it up. Ross still is active in his old band Blitzkrieg, while the guitarists and bassist have been in Skyclad for the past several years.
