Satan's Host Details Two New LPs "Pre-Dating God"

At long last, the wait is over: Colorado's Satan's Host, featuring ex-Jag Panzer vocalist Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin, deliver the masterwork with "Pre-Dating God, Parts I & II"! Both albums will be released simultaneously by Moribund Records on January 19th, 2015 in Europe/UK and January 20th, 2015 in North America.

Recorded between July and September this year at Flatline Audio and produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Dave Otero, both parts of Satan's Host's Pre-dating god feature artwork by the legendary Joe Petagno. A video teaser for the albums can be found at this location.

Striking while the iron's hot after 2013's critically acclaimed "Virgin Sails," the two-disc "Pre-Dating God" sees Satan's Host going from strength to strength, creating epic 'n' dynamic heavy metal anthems that immediately stick in the brain. With a storied history that spans five decades, Patrick Evil's devilish warriors here bring together their two distinct periods - the traditional/true metal of their early work, and the blasting black metal of their middle period - and tastefully modernize it into a sound that is totally all their own. With Conklin delivering his best vocal performance ever, right now, no one's able to touch Satan's Host for sheer mastery and uniqueness: "Pre-Dating God, Parts I & II" will soon be a metal classic for time eternal!
