Review by Tsarina Wilson
Well, this is just the thing to wake you on a Sunday morning, Satanica, from Japan, are brilliantly loud and full on from the start. These guys endorse everything you want and expect from a Heavy Metal band.
Satanica were founded in 2002, “Resurrection Of Devil’s Spirit” is their fourth album and it’s been 10 years since “We Are Satan’s Preacher” which was the third!! It has been a long time coming but we have been given a combination of songs and epic production which all make for a very strong album.
With main-man Ritti Danger, formerly of 80’s band Witch’s Kiss, being in charge of drums and vocals, you get the feeling of someone who puts everything into every track, there is passion and emotion from start to finish, this is a total romp of an album.
With a definite feeling of classic Heavy Metal/NWOBHM about Satanica, it’s like being transported back to the early days of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden or Saxon and definitely in a good way (especially for those of us who grew up back in those days)! Satanica take you on a Heavy Metal ride of pure nostalgia and talented showmanship. Instrumental track ‘Kamikaze’ shows this in abundance and it also gives us the proof, if ever it was needed, that Metal is not always about the vocals, Satanica certainly have a lot to give musically! However, the vocals are 100% headbanging fun and you seriously cannot help loving hem, especially on tracks like ‘Thunderstorm’. Add in thrilling guitar work and drumming and it all combines into one seriously crazy track.
Will “Resurrection Of Devil’s Spirit” appeal to everyone? No, probably not, but I would suggest listening to it a few times before giving it your verdict. it’s very much one of those releases that you will either take to or not, but with the intensity and passion Satanica provide, it grows on you and it’s very hard not to really get into!
One thing though guys, please don’t make us wait another 10 years for album number five!
