No other genre can claim a connection to evil like heavy metal. Whether it's a brutal Satanic death metal band from Florida, a church-burning Norwegian black metal band, or a Mexican gang of Devil-worshiping drug lords, we decided to dig deep into the fiery underground pits of Hell for our selection of the Top 10 Most Satanic Metal Bands. This is a list that would make Lucifer himself proud.

10. Nattefrost
As lead singer for Scandinavian black metal miscreants Carpathian Forrest, Nattefrost is the solo band by the singer of the same name, which is even more Satanic than Carpathian Forrest, who are pretty damn evil to begin with. With a very caustic chainsaw, speed metal punk fury, this band revives the eerie old school sound of bands like Hellhammer, Darkthrone, and Mayhem, with a necro-obsessed theme, and calling for evil entities and dark forces. With songs like "Satanic Victory," "Sluts of Hell," and "Mass Destruction" all from the 2004 album Blood and Vomit, the band is uncompromising in lyrics and raw power. Terrorist, an album from 2006, features more misanthropic torture, with songs like "Primitive Death," "Goat Worship," and "Satan is Endless Satan is Timeless." Basically, it's the type of scary music that you would hear in a Born Again Christian's nightmares.


9. Morbid Angel
Since the debut of an extreme metal classic in 1989, Altars of Madness Morbid Angel have mastered the art form of extreme metal, producing some of the most evil-sounding heavy metal music in existence. With a foundation of musical technicality that is nothing short of sorcery, the roots of the Florida-bred band are steeped in the occult and worship of the beast, but have moved towards more dark, spiritual and esoteric themes, such Sumerian deities, mythology and even ancient incantations and witchcraft.

Morbid Angel are included with their peers in Deicide and Cannibal Corpse as being the most successful first wave of American death metal bands. Ironically, what is considered to be the band's most Satanic album, 1993's Covenant was the first album released by a death metal band, on a major record label (a subsidiary of Warner Bros) and is still ranked among the some of the best selling death metal albums of all time. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Covenant, the band will perform the album in its entirety on tour beginning in November.

most of you are wrong in general anyway...most of these bands do not "worship' satan,that would require an acknowledgement of his existence and all of these dudes are  way too smart to do that..,,i mean if all of you are going to split hairs and mention all these bands that you deem as 'satanic' then NONE of these bands fit that category and they will be the first to tell you that

Stop whining, there is dozens of satanic bands out there, and you have to choose 10, not every band can be mentioned on such short terms...

Sweet Mercyful satan this list is idiotic.

First off:

Gorgoroth, Watain, Dissection, Insision, and Akercocke not listed, you know, bands who actually celebrate their devil worship, Also no King Diamond or Mercyful fate? You know King Diamond? The guy who uses the sign for Anton Lavey's Church of Satan in his logo?

Instead it reads like:

9 metal bands my mom is scared of and Behemoth, who are kinda mom friendly

How is Watain not on here?  http://www.templeofwatain.com/  I'm a music photojournalist and have seen them worship the devil ON STAGE. they literally carry a bag of dead crows they have sacrificed before each tour. Have an altar and bathe in the stench of carcasses as well.  Music is pretty intense as well. I've never had to walk out of a photopit to vomit and run back in to make sure I got all the shots I needed.  http://shutter16.com/the-decibel-magazine-tour-behemoththe-devils-blood-and-watain-amos-southend/

Is this a fucking joke? The author of this article is obviously CLUELESS on this subject. This list is a stupid thing to begin with, like it's some kind of "competition" to be the most satanic metal-band in the world. But since the list have been made, at list have some REAL satanic metal-bands on there, but the author obviously just googled "extreme metal-band" and used the first ten hits for this list and added their biographies. Ever heard of Watain, Deathspell Omega, Ofermod, Funeral Mist, Chaos Invocation, Ascension, Malign, Katharsis, Dissection, Mortuus, Behexen etc. Do your fucking homework.

@Numenius I agree with you for the most part, However, some of the bands on here are truly satanic. They failed to mention Watain I agree, also Mercyful Fate, and many others. Mercyful Fate is the reason most of these bands exist frankly.

@Dagoth @Numenius Sense of humour? What does a list of the "10 most satanic metal bands" have to do with humour? I have a great sense of humour thank you very much, but satanic metal, and satanic black metal in particular, is not some kind of joke or laughing matter. Hence I give the author some real bands for this list, if he wants to make a real one.

@Dagoth @Numenius Well, it better be some kind of joke, since it's an absurd list, if you were to truly name the "10 most satanic metal bands". As I said in my first comment, it's a stupid thing to begin with, it has MTV written all over it, but since it's written, it should be done properly. In the end this list means nothing, of course, it's just so wrong that I had to say something.
