The Top Ten

I think this band of pure evil demons is the best of all times! I don't know who would say any thing bad about them like that
Number 1 and 2 were hard to decide but these guys did some bad stuff in krakow they had bloodbaths and fake crucifixion and the lead singer tortured someone and they burned a lot of churches
The krakow concert has to be the most disturbing concerts I've ever watched. The band was actually arrested on blasphemy charges for that concert by the polish government. Awesome stuff. Check it out on youtube.

2Antim Grahan

3Cradle of Filth
Cradle of filth isn't Satanic dani filth clearly states this in several interviews. Do your homework next time
Cradle of filth is not satanic! Its not even pure black metal! It just has some elements of symphonic black metal. Know the band before you post stuff. There lyrics ain't even satanic, its demons and ghost and gothic romanticism.
This is so satanic music and it was so scared face

If Mayhem is not the most satanic band, I don't know what is... COF have some satanic lyrics, but they are not real satanists! Only band comparable to Mayhem is Gorgoroth!
Euronymous will probably forever in history be the most satanic, evil figure in black metal history. Once stating that he favoured the totalitarian style of communism practiced by Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot, and was against individualism, compassion, peace, happiness and fun, Anyone who votes for nunslaughter or bands like that, should stop and listen to some of mayhem's lyrics, and even their riffs are more satanic than nunslaughters lyrics, and definitely more so than cradle of filth and Gorgoroth.

Hail satan m/
These guys are totally messed up obviously Norwegian they are totally psycho burned churches to
More comments about Mayhem

True Satanists to the core! Most black metal bands stray for the Satanic banner and became new age hippies. NOT MARDUK! HAIL MARY from Serpent Sermon is the most satanic song ever made!

Nunslaughter are the best band in the whole list.
And one of the few that play REAL metal. Some of the abominations listed are crap.
One of the best Old School Death Metal Bands ever! Really good, fast, brutal, alcoholocaustic and satanic band. What is Antim Grahan? If they think they're satanic, I think I'm Lucifer himself. Just listen to Satanic Slut, is an armageddon anthem! Support true satanic death metal!
This band is over the top and addictive. Collectors go nuts over them, and their catalog is worth it. The lyrics, imagery, artwork, and the music itself is totally satanic. Of all of the bands on the list, which name can you not drop in normal conversation? Nunslaughter.

7Suicide Silence
Suicide silence is not a satanic band... DARK FUNERAL would be a satanic band.
This is not satanic!
When the hell was suicide silence ever satanix?

8Dark Funeral
These guys are totally evil with a capital E all of their songs are about satan they swedish
The Logo is satanic and their songs.

American metal has a good name but then Deicide stepped in and made it sound like church burning was in USA they had some church burnings in Texas
I don't think there is a single song that doesn't bash on Christianity, their first single was lunatic of gods creation. And every album since then has just been just as anti god
Most demonic metal band
More comments about Deicide

Charged for murder of the guitarist of mayhem and burning 4 churches, the guy was a big member of the church of satan he was released from prison very recently he's norweigan
Not satanic at all.
Always stated that he never was satanist but he is the mind behind the Neo-Paganism Wave in the Metalscene. Ans he definitely Never was a Member of the Church of Satan.

The Contenders

Black/death metal from Austria. Every song is about satanic rituals, violence against Christians and loots of sexual perversion. (Sometimes with animals. All album art is evil, but specifically anti-christian or satanic? Check out the artwork for "the last supper" and "Lucifer incestus"
Blinding blasting, blaspheme lyrics, relentless, and satanic references, and art-work. Awesome and talented band
Belphegor is THE MOST satanic band ever

12Lamb of God
Their original name was burn the priest
Not Satanic, but very anti-religion.

13Dimmu Bogir
A lot of satanic lyrics but I am not sure if they burned a lot of churches
Dimmu borgir is a really awesome band
The best black metal band I've ever heard,
More comments about Dimmu Bogir

I don't know of this band, but you probably shouldn't read on. The suggested bands only get worse after this. Avenged Sevenfold, AC/DC, Black Veil Brides, Bullet For My Valentine, Judas Priest... how could you think these people are Satanists or even care for Satanism? Korn, Slipknot, Metallica. Even Nirvana is on here. Hopefully that's some sort of joke... Three Days Grace, Santana, and Tool are also on here laugh out loud. Just save yourself the agony and don't read on.

If anyone asks me to list my favourite Satanic bands, the first one to be called out will always be Behemoth. Their music alone is enough to kill Christianity. The song "Lucifer" is a must listen.
Behemoth gotta be number 1 4sure they are satanic as hell and evil as satan just write in this wepsite(top 10 satanic songs) and number 1 is (behemoth-lucifer)
Behemoth are not a satanic band...they are just anti-christian...they have some satanic lyrics but weren't written by nergal...also nergal believes in thelema...and other members are atheists as I think...but behemoth are one of the best bands ever to exist!


More comments about Behemoth


No band portrays the true cause of theistic Satanism in the candid manner that Ghost does. Without these artists, we would not have songs like "Ritual", "Year Zero", and "Monstrance Clock." Through their Satanic efforts, the dark lord Lucifer is honored and exalted by those who adore and vilify his grace alike. Papa Emeritus II of Ghost has foreseen the future of man, and it is grim for those who have not accepted Lucifer and the 5 Kings of Hell into their broken souls.

Ghost is a band of true embodiments of the Lord Lucifer's unholy labour, and with their help, his work is achieved. Lyrics such as "Come together as one, for Lucifer's son." and "Hail Satan, Archangelo! " shape the way into the mind of the sheep of the earth, through their catchy, laid back metal and charmingly evil lyrics. As well as the technicality of the musicians themselves. A satanic clergy, and enigma, which is meditated upon by the masses. Every listen and thought towards them is a testament of good-will to Lucifer and the 5 kings.

The simple fact of the matter is that Ghost remains the pinnacle of Luciferian Satanism or "Goat Worship" music available. Pick up Infesstessimam today.
It is really funny that iron maiden, Lamb Of God, Korn, BMTH, Slipknot, Cradle Of Filth, Avenged sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Children Of Bodom, Marliyn Manson, Cannibal Corpse, Judas Priest in this list.. This list is ruined... Ok slayer is maybe full of satanic lyrics but we can, t forget that Tom araya is christian and what leads to their satanic lyrics is the writing of Kerry King, Jeff Hanneman... And Cradle Of Filth make a satanic look, a contervesty to just get fame but they never meant it... And also the death metal band "death" if you checked their unreleased demos you may find satanic lyrics due to chuck wasn, t the frontman of the band and the band was orignally named "Mantas"... And at last I want to say... Ghost looks satanic.. Makes satanic lyrics with high experince... But what you must know that the band ghost ain, t satanic at real their main vocalist is a POPE of chruch of England...


"Hear our Satan prayer Our anti Nicene creed
Hear our Satan prayer For the coming of seed"
We Are Here
For Your Praise
Evil One"
"Come together, together as a one
Come together for LuciferÔÇÖs son"

Satanic lyrics, pure and simple. This band should be number one... Both in this list and in the world!
More comments about Ghost

The lead singer is a catholic and the other members are atheist, they don't worship satan but most of their songs are about him
I love how bullet for my Valentine is ahead of slayer and if you don't think slayer is satanic look up Christ illusions it is awful and suicide silence is not a bad bands at all
Tom Araya (Vocalist) made it clear that they do not worship satan, he's catholic and he does not let the songs lyrics interfere with his religion. Check Wiki.

20Children of Bodom
Wow C.O. B is not that satanic but they are evil and mean but the only song is satanic for them is (banned from heaven) and where is (behemoth)

One of my most liked bands
They are absolutely disgusting. I wanted to puke upon reading their lyrics.
They're ok, but I love some of their music :)they're awesome
More comments about Slipknot

22Avenged Sevenfold
They have made a song titled "Dear God" Sorry, but hat isn't Satanic! One of my favorite bands.
They had one song called "God Hates Us" ITS NOT EVEN A DIRECT THING TOWARDS GOD, its about our Total Nightmare, that's what the name of the song should be called
Well the Christian logic to god hates us was not simply what I had done sir or mam but of what a catholic would possibly do I like A7X as much as the next guy. Therefore they are not satanic though what kind of idiot would actually think that they would be satanic.

23Justin Beiber
HA! Maybe satan put him here to torture our ear drums!
There is no way this boy is not from the depths of hell
This is true he is here as a demon in disguise forced to walk the earth forever to torture both him and us, for neither God nor satan wanted him.

24King Diamond
King diamond is the steven king of music, very talented band two thumbs up!
King diamond is a real satanic musician, but the most important hi signs like a woman
I have all. Albums as well as the ones when he was in mercyful fate
More comments about King Diamond

A very successful black metal band from norway, burned a few churches their music is really distorted

26Morbid Angel
Marylyn mansion? Iron maiden? Slipknot? Who made this lists? Morbid Angel is Not the most satanic band around... But they know FACTS about rituals, rites ancient prophets etc. (not condoning Satanism nor Satanists) but Most bands mentioned on here are ALL Hollywood! And church Burnings? How's that cool? Early vital remains & earlier deicide are good too
Morbid Angel are fake satanists. Deicide is black metal.

27Bullet for My Valentine
Love them! They are one of my favorite bands

The word means satan in syriac a finnish black metal band that are just plain evil that's all I have to say
100Percentreal Listen One Song And Compare Them To Morbidangel. PLus There Are Albums Are Limitedtiny Label. They Still Around? Posers Stay Away. Bathory Are Fake.

They started the whole black betal thing

True their songs do mention hell a lot but that doesn't mean anything their music is awesome. I honestly am not a religious person just because I do not believe in god doesn't mean that I am devil worshiper because I do t believe in the devil either. ­čśő let them be and follow their religion. Just saying you know
Because of the way they have songs like Highway To Hell and Hells Bells
Just about all their songs talk about hell

31Lost Oblivion

32Rotting Christ
They should get more credits for their perfect songs!

33Mercyful Fate
Jesus Chrsit they should be no. 1! Most of their songs have Satanic themes, and the lead singer King Diamond actually was a Satanist!
All lyrics are Satan glorifying
Why are thease not at number one or at least in the top ten
More comments about Mercyful Fate

34The Beatles
What! Gorgoroth at number 1?! The Beatles is the greatest Satanic band of all times!
This satanist named Aliester Crowley was on one of their albums and John Lennon was probably posessed.
Believe it or not, they are satanic

You stupid dumbass Metallica is not satanic -__-
Metallica is not satanic
I'm confuse... all of their songs, there's no word satan, but in their song called enter sandman, there's a snake symbol, that snake symbol mean triple 6... but, I'm still disagree with you, cause I love their songs...
More comments about Metallica

36Cannibal Corpse
I read some Cannibal Corpse lyrics, and they're not satanic, they're just sickening and gory.
Their album artwork is absolutely disgusting, how can they not at least be in the top twenty?! The lyrics of their songs of filth! There's no way they can be this low on the list!

Nice and... Religious... >:]

Quorthon is totally a god. Almost all black metal bands were made because of him. The band he made wasn't really famous, it was just an underground band. But, they had the best songs about Viking and that... Lyrics were always the best thing in the band. I am listening to them, and I say "HAIL QUORTHON-BATHORY"
Very anti-Christian, and even has Satanic songs like "Satan is My Master." They sure proved to make a lasting impression on other Satan praising bands.

39Thy Art Is Murder
These guys have some pretty sick lyrics, and they're pretty heavy; they do have some dark themes, but they're not gruesome in their content. I only have their new album titled 'Hate' and I love it. Look up Gates of Misery by these guys, in epic song.
I have seen Thy Art is Murder live they are amazing, but one question... why isn't this band at least within number one through 20?
Actually they are very Satanic in their concerts - I've seen them live!

40Iron Maiden
Iron maiden is not satanic you dumbass
Number of the beast - 666?! Not satanic right
Iron maiden never made any evil songs they may of put zombies on there album covers but none of there songs have anythibg to do with hateing God or worshiping the devil
More comments about Iron Maiden

This should be number one, behexen is a true satanic band

42Arch Enemy
So far the best...The growl is awesome...and the lyrics are all twisted...
Best band since the Beatles


Yeah, should be on top with Rotting Christ, Dark Funeral and Mayhem.
How on earth is Dissection not higher. For shame...
Awesome band! Not sure if they're satanic though

45Motionless In White
Wow this is stupid. They r not satanic.

46Bring Me the Horizon
Listen to crooked young! & the stuff in their merch! The band has a really good sound & Oliver has a good voice but the lyrics are not okay.
You're so stupid, BMTH's lead singer, Oliver Sykes, believes in neither God nor Lucifer...
Have you not seen their merch?

47Black Sabbath

48Black Veil Brides
Umm NOPE try again listen to the lyrics... They talk about how the devil is BAD laugh out loud most of the songs talk about God
Hey gd evening, I've allways wanted to ask this question to a satanist. Why are you a satanist if its going to take you to hell (lake of fire) with satan himself? Sure he gives you powers (black magic etc) but they are just for as long as you are alive and then you wont inherit the kingdom of God. I don't understand... why go down that road? God is love and Satan isn't. Hell was for satan not for people. Satan wants you to die for him, even he will die... it is written
Black Veil Brides is NOT a satanic band.

Guys I've been researching and this is not satanic, their lyrics are not satanic, my favorite band

51Judas Priest
They are just like monsters
All lyrics glorify Satan

Disturbed is not satanic you ignorant close minded idiot. They talk about hell but never condone sinfulness or listening to satan. I hope you realize how stupid you are putting this here. No, they are not.
. , I can't believe this band belongs to satans army of metal bands, . But I really love them and there songs us well (but not all). ,
Disturbed can't be satanic at all! Just look: David Draiman is Jew!
More comments about Disturbed

Nirvana is not satanic ;-;
Nirvana isn't satanic, kurt is god
Kurt was my favorite singer

Yes there is a band called satan and they have all their songs dedicated to satan.
Well they are called satan

1349 was the year of the black plague. They should be up their with the other Black Metal bands. Way beyond what the church goer considers satanic or evil like the Nu-metal or the hard rock bands.
All of these are idiots, abnormal... God made us... Not

56Escape the Fate
Escape the fate is NOT satanic there are 2 members from Escape the fate that are satanic (Max Green & Tj bell) but Escape the fate is NOTsatanic there's no satanic songs from them.
Love the band, but not sure if satanic


Not to put ACHERON as number 1 here is a travesty. They are about the only ones who sing only about Satan.

All lyrics are Satan glorifying

Abruptum is pure evil
So far ahead in the essence of evil that no-one has caught up yet

60Infant Annihilator
Great band! Better lyrics!
Most disturbing lyrics I've ever herd in my life! About raping and sodomizing children and women! What is wrong w people! Literally made me sick...



Hotel California is the only song that has references to suicide and satan. Inside the album cover is anton lavee on the balcony.

64Led Zeppelin
Satanic band of the 70's
The band was satanic and the singer is really satanic and the lyrics too very good band

65Stalaggh & Gulaggh
No one knows about them, or else this band would top the list
By far, the most extreme band of them all.
Screams from mental asylum and that of deaf people who never heared their own voice. Sounds evil already. Its not your fault because you guys probably havnt heared of them yet. Just check out 'projekt misanthropia' by Stalaggh and then decide where this band stands compared to these 102 bands above when it comes to being evil.

66Vital Remains
Icons of evil cover is the king


Tool is best of all satanic band...
New age occultism abound in lateralus and ├Žnema, anti Christian messages in other albums.

Great band from Poland. Lead singer is the most famous polish satanist. Lyrics is about Satan as well, but its not like "Satan, Satan! " its very mystic and dark. And music is beautiful.

Check these guys out they are really satanic.

71Rob Zombie
This guy is really satanic! He's should be up there with manson!


So I guess the most harmless and least visible is the most satanic... Because it is the most deceptive.
All rockstars are satanic! For satan himself is a god of music...

74Nox Arcana



77Blood Feast

78The Tragically Hip

79Rose Funeral

80Lost Life

81Yesterday I Had Roadkill

I don't know why the death metal fans don't pay attention to this monster of death metal sub genre this band absoloutly must be at least top 20 of this list
Got to be in the top ten for sure. One of their song names is God is dead helleyuah. That tells you something.
One song is called "God is dead(helleyuah)

These guys I have met and they are openly satanic, none of the bands listed are satanic. Like korn? Seriously? Judas priest?
The best blackened band

84Uriah Heep

85War Against Christ

86White Zombie

100% disagree with these guys being on the list. All time favorite. I know the lyrics to all their songs and none of them are close to having Satanic subliminal messaging

88Dawn of Ashes
This band is awesome and really really really good I give it 300%
Just check out "poisoning the steps of babel"


90Falling In Reverse

91Nocturnal Depression
Nocturnal Depression isn't a Satanic band, yes some of the members are in the religion of satanism but they've stated that they do not put any satanical themes in their lyrics or songs, maybe just image. Get your facts right.

92Five Finger Death Punch


What?! Nobody ever heard about Sarc├│fago! Check their first album and their first ep rotting and dare to say that they are not satanic/evil band they should be the #1


95Pungent Stench

96Kult ov Azazel

I'm not sure if satanic, but very very hardcore lyrics.
