Satan’s Host: Archidoxes Of Evil-2000.

Metal from Hell since 1986! Denver, Colorado “Satan’s Host”, the brain child of Guitar Virtuoso Patrick Evil in league with vocalist Leviathan Thisiren (Harry Conklin, Jag Panzer-Titan Force) released their first album “Metal From Hell” in 1986 with huge underground acclaim and Cult following. After the release of this monumental album Satan’s Host recorded the famous Bootleg “Midnight Wind” which never got official release, but has been bootlegged along with “Metal from Hell” after it went out of print all over the world for years to come.

Then Satan’s Host went into hiatus and then reappeared in 1999 with L.C.F. Eli Elixir on vocals along with Patrick Evil on Guitars. The band went on to release “In Articulo Mortis” in 1999 with “Archidoxes of Evil” in 2000. The band took on a new sound going deeper into the darker side of Metal from the Traditional side.

In 2004 Eli ElixirPatrick Evil and new drummer Pete 3 Wicked started the process with Producer/Audio Engineer Dave Otero of Flatline Studios to record “Burning the Born Again… (A New Philosophy)“, following in 2005 with the release of “Satanic Grimoire: A Greater Black Magick“. With the newly formed structure of band and producer working team, Satan’s Host was able to land a deal with Moribund Cult Records and begun production for 2008 release “Great American Scapegoat…666” which landed the band on a US tour which was a major success. Moribund also re-released “Burning the Born Again… (A New Philosophy)” and “Satanic Grimoire: A Greater Black Magick“.

In the summer of 2008 Pete 3 Wicked left Satan’s Host and in came current drummer Anthony “Evil Hobbit” Lopez and along with Patrick Evil and Eli Elixir they went back into Flatline Audio and produced the critically acclaimed “Power~Purity~Perfection…999” which gained rave reviews globally. At this time, current bass player Margar entered the ranks of the band.

Eli Elixir departed Satan’s Host during the 2009 holiday season and in stepped back into the vocalist spot was Leviathan Thisiren. Immediately promoter Oliver Weinsheimer of the Keep It True Festival booked Satan’s Host for the German festival where die-hard cult fans have had a demand for Satan’s Host for over quarter of a century. Satan’s Host performed April 24 in Germany for a packed house of crazed fanatic Metal fans that poured in from all corners of Europe to see the true one and only originators of Metal from Hell for the first time ever.

Once back in the states the band begun production for the upcoming Moribund Cult Records release “By the Hands of the Devil” with longtime producer Dave Otero at Flatline Audio. “I felt that Harry and I had some unfinished business from before, and how things have progressed lately I felt now was the best time to go ahead and take this to a whole new level,” states Patrick Evil. The album was a hit in the global Metal market and has received critical acclaim and rave reviews globally.

Satan’s Host then put out a second 2011 release “CELEBRATION For the Love of Satan” on Nov. 22 which commemorates the 25th anniversary release of the cult classic “Metal from Hell” via Moribund Cult, the album contained 12 tracks, 2 new and 10 tracks spanning off all the bands catalog, also acquiring critical acclaim and rave reviews globally.

On November 19, 2013 “Virgin Sails” was released via Moribund Cult Records. The follow up to “By the Hands of the Devil” was also recorded at Flatline Studios with Dave Otero producing. “Virgin Sails” has 8 complete full tracks with two guitar interludes. As always the album gained great reviews globally and stated a solidification with Harry Conklin back in the band. During this cycle the band went to perform highlight performances in San Juan, Puerto Rico; the Northwestern Black Circle Festival in Portland, Oregon; and the Doom in June festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.

2014 also saw the “Metal from Hell” Reissue via Skol Records with a new and updated layout, a fresh re-master by Producer-Skol Records head Bart Gabriel, and the accompaniment of the famous bootleg of “Midnight Wind” material. The band also begun production on the “Pre-dating god” saga, a projected 2 single albums due on Jan. 20, 2015 via Moribund Records. “Pre-dating god Part 1” and “Pre-dating god Part 2” were recorded once again with Dave Otero at Flatline Studios with artwork from longtime collaborator Joe Petagno (Motorhead, Marduk). The 80+ minute opus spans 11 new tracks, “See you in Hell” Grim Reaper cover, and a special “Classic Metal Re-Mix” on the title track.

Satan’s Host is currently working on the follow up to “Pre-dating god”. Derek “Arkhon” Bowen is back in the band on bass and the band have also added “We Are Armageddon” management with Tatyana Lopez at the helm.

    The more I listen to this album, the more it interests me. It’s a very peculiar album; unlike everything else that they’ve done. Before this, they had made heavy metal with power, black, and thrash influences. After this, they made a more blackened version of this. But this is interesting, because it is in a category of its own. It stands out, or at least to the few people who own this, for it was released in a very underground fashion. But don’t think any of this is bad, because if your lucky enough to find this somewhere, you will definitely enjoy it.

    The album starts off with acoustic guitars and evil singing of Satan and Lucifer. The song ends and immediately blasts into the next song, “Devils Orison”. It is a very heavy piece; its almost impossible to not to headbang to this. Most of the album is like this: very heavy, low guitar chugs. But, somehow, Patrick Evil finds some way to add some memorable riffs in between the heavy mosh of sound. The vocals are very strange; its quite unlike the usual Satan’s Host screaming. When he does his lows, its very loud and angry. His highs, however, are almost not even screams. It’s more like L.C.F. Elixir is speaking loudly. Now, this sounds kind of bad, but the way he does it just makes it a crucial part to this album. The drums are also very different; more work was put into these drum parts then in the later Satan’s Host works. All in all, this jumble of intricate instruments make a very good combination that just grab you and won’t let you go.

    There is also an instrumental track placed in the middle of the album. Now, normally, I skip over the instrumentals, but, like the rest of the album, I couldn’t pull myself away. “Melektaus” is a nice piece played only on acoustic guitar. It is a very nice track, and blends very well into the rest of the album. It’s sort of like a break from the heavy pounding of the tracks before it. The entire track is played by 2 (or more, I can’t tell) guitars. The track is beautiful; there is really no other way of putting it. Patrick Evil really outdid himself on this album. But, like the intro, it ends and immediately brings you back to the carnage which is the rest of the album.

    The entire album is great, but 2 songs stick out to me the most: “Nightside of Eden” and “Melektaus”. “Nightside of Eden”, unlike the other tracks, starts off with a lighter guitar intro. When the intro ends, the headbanging begins. A couple nice leads and solos are present, adding to the song’s mass of greatness. Eli’s chanting and screaming fit like a puzzle piece in the song. The only problem that I have with the song is that it ends, leaving you wanting more. But, have no fear, the rest of the album will bring you right back to your feet.

    All in all, this album is most enjoyable. The only thing keeping me from giving this a 100 was the quality of the album. It is very obviously an underground work, and this album just begs to be cleaned off. But, quality aside, this is a masterful work. I’ve listened to it countless times, and I’m still hooked by it. I will definitely cherish this forever. It is a great album, and it is a great beginning to a great band’s rebirth.
