The Black/Death Thrashterpiece of 2008! SATAN'S HOST's latest Great American Scapegoat 666 establishes these American occultists among the thrash/black/death metal elite! With a sweltering, swarming production courtesy of Flatline Audio (Summon, Cephalic Carnage, Cobalt) and gatefold cover-art by Joe "motoerhead" Petagno, Great American Scapegoat 666 contains the HOST's most ripping and epic hymns to date. Detonate and desecrate!
SATAN'S HOST strike with deadlier violence and fierier force with "The Great American Scapegoat 666", their first album of all-new material for MORIBUND. Recorded with razor-sharp clarity and full-bodied frenzy by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cobalt) at Flatline Audio, "The Great American Scapegoat 666" is both summation and intensification of the band's occult powers: epic song constructions, made even more epic and bewitching; incendiary aggression, pulsing into overdrive; and classic/thrash metal leads providing tone color, making the result that much more memorable. In other words, a ritualistic black/death metal record that only SATAN'S HOST can produce.
2007 was a monumental year for Satanic metallers SATAN'S HOST. As a sign of Satanic solidarity, THE MORIBUND CULT released bolstered, remastered versions of 2004's "Burning the Born Again...(A New Philosophy)" and 2006's "Satanic Grimoire: A Greater Black Magick". As a result, the world at large witnessed the high-profile resurrection of one of underground metal's most mythos-cloaked entities, one which saw SATAN'S HOST going from strength to strength, and salacious attention from fans and press alike followed. SATAN'S HOST were definitely back, and definitely better.
"The Great American Scapegoat 666" is proof that SATAN'S HOST anno 2008 will herald the coming Satanic age with the sounds of real EVIL metal! The Black/Death Thrashterpiece of 2008!
