Most Satanic Bands

For everyone that wants to know some really evil bands if you like them or want to stay away from them.

The Top Ten

Gorgoroth Gorgoroth is a Norwegian black metal band based in Bergen. Formed in 1992 by Infernus, the band is named after the dead plateau of evil and darkness in the land of Mordor (a fictional location in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings).

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

First off, If Gorgoroth was really satanic. They wouldn't be putting fake crucifixions up on stage... Satan doesn't like the crucifixion because when Jesus died for our sins, it was a defeat for him. Therefore, they are not satanic. They are a bunch of idiots trying to be satanic and know nothing of Satan because if they did they wouldn't put up half the stuff that's on their stage!

Jesus Christ our messiah is coming and all nonbelievers will perish!

And if you knew anything about satanism you would learn that the majority of satanists are atheists and the ones that aren't don't believe jesus existed at all

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

These guys are truely terrifying. Their lead singer tortured some guy for several days and threatened to drink his blood. I'm not kidding, they are actual Satanists. They make horrible music too. Someone please arrest them before they burn down another church.

Mayhem Mayhem is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1984 in Oslo, regarded as one of the pioneers of the Norwegian black metal scene. The band is also known for the infamous events surrounding them including the 1991 suicide of vocalist Dead (in which former guitarist Euronymous took pictures of Dead's ...read more.

All their members have some kind of mental issues; Dead was a psychopath who was obsessed with dead stuff, Euronymous loved Communism and wanted to spread hate, Hellhammer is evil and praised the drummer of another band for killing a homosexual man, and Varg is a racist murderer.

Now, I've listen to some of the bands on here that are deemed Satanic, I've never really listened to any of these bands in the top ten more than once except for Ghost. Now, black metal isn't my cup of tea, but I'll listen to it. And Mayhem is the only one I probably won't listen to again. Mayhem is just to horrible for me. One of their lead singers used to dress like a corpse starting the "corpse paint" trend in black metal. He also cut himself on stage with glass and buried his clothes to get the "stench of death" on it. He would also throw pig heads at the crowd to weed out the posers. This guy is messed up.

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

Deicide Deicide is an American death metal band formed in 1987 by bassist and vocalist Glen Benton and drummer Steve Asheim. They are known for their blasphemous and satanic lyrics which have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticisms from religious groups and the public. Frontman Glen Benton is also known for ...read more.

This band is a steaming pile of Satanic trash. They're so bad, they make Gorgoroth's songs look like Bohemian Rhapsody.

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

Their lyrics are completely against Christianity, the singer has even said he was Satanist and has repeatedly branded an inverted cross into his head. These guys are the most satanic band ever.

Behemoth Behemoth is a Polish blackened death metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground.

Funny thing Behemoth members are actually born catholic & the band name was actually inspired by the Bible. It’s yin and yang, they just are extremely dark

Anyone who is a Satanist and worships the devil is a criminally insane psychopath that needs to be locked up in a mental asylum

They're not Satanic. It's all a stage gimmick. Nergal doesn't like religion but he's not a Satanist, he is Athiest.

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.

Ghost Ghost is a Swedish heavy metal band that was formed in Linköping in 2008. Ghost consists of 5 masked instrumentalists, known as The Nameless Ghouls, and a demonic anti-pope known as Papa Emeritus. They have released 4 studio albums, 1 live album and 2 EPs. Each album brings in a new version of Papa ...read more.

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 ...more

Got to see them in concert this week and they are utterly AMAZING live! The atmosphere created is something you just have to experience. It really feels like an amazing religious experience. Ghost has managed to make theistic satanism appealing, and I love that the vocals are clear and nuanced. As a side note, the fans at the show we went to were wonderful. I'm disabled and the crowd was so helpful it was amazing. Helping me up and down stairs and helping me move through the crowd, it makes me proud to be a part of the assembly.

Ghost are absolutely amazing. They do dedicate songs and parts of songs to Satan, they make people think again. I feel great when I listen to their music, I can't quite explain how it feels, but what they are wanting to achieve, they are going about it the right way 100%. I only discovered them 2 weeks ago, and now listen to them multiple times a day, every day. I can't get enough of them. They are very satanic, and I'm glad they've put themselves out there. I hope the world takes note and listens.

Ghost sell themselves as a satanic band. However, they've said that all of the satanic imagery and lyrics is meant to be taken as tongue-in-cheek. They just do it for shock value.

Marduk Marduk is a black metal band from Norrköping, Sweden. The band formed in 1990 and released their first album in 1992. Their name is derived from the Babylonian god Marduk, patron deity of Babylon.

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!

These guys are very satanic. just listen to their lyrics. I don't think antim grahan is satanic though

One of my most favorite bands...why? Listen to them and you'll know

Whoa, they even have an upside down cross in their logo

Dark Funeral Dark Funeral is a Swedish black metal band from Stockholm Sweden, founded by guitarists Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman in 1993. They emerged during the second wave of black metal.

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.

Dark Funeral is one of the best satanic bands.

Holy hell this band is awesome! Very first true Satan worship metal band I've ever listened to and the first album caught my heart! Hail Satan!

Mercyful Fate Mercyful Fate was a Danish heavy metal band from Copenhagen, formed in 1981 by vocalist King Diamond and guitarist Hank Shermann.

They are not satanic but king diamond is the rest of the band is not

This is the only band that should be in the top spot. The rest that came after (all of the so called "black metal" bands wearing corpse paint that are pretty much a parody) copied their style. Yeah, Alice Cooper, Kiss and Arthur Brown may have worn the paint first, but Mercyful Fate took it to the next level, as well as the Satanic lyricism, forming a new package. Why on earth is Ghost above Mercyful Fate, when everyone knows they are a mix of Mercyful Fate and Blue Oyster Cult?

Jesus Chrsit they should be no. 1! Most of their songs have Satanic themes, and the lead singer King Diamond actually was a Satanist!

This is one of the only actual satanic bands on this list. All the others are only contributing to the stereotype.

One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

Oh come on, why aren't they in first place? Their music makes Satan himself quiver in his boots. Mayhem and Gorgoroth are a bunch of kids compared to them. I'm genuinely surprised that they haven't burned down any churches yet.

Snuff, vermillion are satanic songs really? even their heaviest song iowa isn't satanic

These guys are crazy. They put all other black metal bands to shame, the mosh pits are the biggest and most dangerous. Approximately 50% of all people who attend one direction concerts get injured or killed.

Makes hell look like a ball pit, Gorgoroth sound like Carrie Underwood, and even satan himself look like a fluffy tamed kitty, because that's how hardcore satanic they are.

Nunslaughter

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.

I saw this band in a house, and they kicked ass. Later that month I held a black mass in my back yard. I think they are pretty satanic, like the guy held his drum sticks up like an inverted cross and everything!

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.

The Contenders

Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz, the group was originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s. ...read more.

Marilyn Manson is not a Satanist. He may dislike religion but I know for a fact that he's Atheist.

He is in no way satanic or evil. The only reason one of his albums is called 'Antichrist Superstar' is because he thought religion was a negative influence on society. How religion has led to many wars and extremist groups like the KKK and Westboro Baptist Church.

He also stated that he doesn't promote bad behavior in his fans.

I love him very much. He is my idol.

True, he was given the title of an administer in the church of Satan, but that is laveyan satanism. If you don't know, laveyan satanism doesn't believe in a god or Satan, it is actually just a philosophy. And since Manson doesn't have any satanic lyrics, he shouldn't be on this list

Satan

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

Satan is a British metal band who has lyrics about society, history and politics. Nothing Satanic about them.

Well they are called satan

Satan will always be Ani-Christ lol

Acheron Acheron is an American death/black metal band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that was formed by Vincent Crowley in 1988.

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

I'm honestly surprised these guys are only number 10. Their vocalist used to be a a reverend of the Church of Satan, or so I heard.

The black metal band I don't like

Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

No way are they satanic, Just hated. These guys were in fact One of my Favorite bands in 8 grade

They are not satanic I think they are actually Christian don’t believe me check out their intro to their three dollar bill$ yall$ album

THEY ARE REALLY SATANIC! MORE SATANIC THAN GORGOROTH OR MAYHEM OR EVEN BLACK METAL! (sarcasm)

Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

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?

Not satanic. More Atheistic

Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

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.

I'm not into this sort of stuff, I just got curious really after making friends with someone who is. I have listened to one or two Cradle of filth songs and so far the best one is Nymphetamine fix...love the song don't know why. I thought Cradle of filth would be quite depraved but don't seem as bad as some of the others I've just read about.

Their early work was satanic but they left it, why these guys are at the top of this list?

Antim Grahan

Thumbs up for Antim Graham
Drummer, basist,lead guitarist, piano & vocals power rang is everything is perfect... Multi talents... Showing up Asian Giants

In love with Suicide.
This song specially related to Convince,
SuddEnly Falling in love with witch.

I love this song, It has a great riff and a deep atmospheric vibe. It projects the realist side of black metal rather than satanic cliches and myth. I usually like melodic metal and it has some melody to it, I usually prefer un-blackened metal.. But this is true art!
Hands up...for Antim Grahan...
Most talented band I have ever seen. forever winter...
Drummer, guitarist, octopad,vocalist..awesome... Pure symphonic black metal band..
We can compare with Dark Funeral,
Gorgoroth, Dimmu Borgir...

Its debut album, Scream Bloody Gore, has been widely regarded as the first death metal record, while the band's ...read more.

They weren't Satanic.

They were not satanic at all

why are they on this list

Not satanic.

Watain Watain are a Swedish black metal band from Uppsala, formed in 1998. The band's name is taken from a recording by the American black metal group Von.

The members of this band are all actual theistic satanists. They are affiliated with the Temple of Black Light which is probably the most satanic group ever

Have seen Watain and listened to them talk about their philosophy, they are in my opinion genuine and deserving of #1. The only other on this list that comes close is Mercyful Fate.

Watain is the most satanic band worldwide

These guys are genuine as opposed to some of the wannabe satanists on this list, they should be #1

Burzum Burzum is an influential black metal solo project of Norwegian musician and writer Varg Vikernes. Burzum came to prominence at the beginning of the Norwegian Black Metal scene in the early 1990s. Vikernes was imprisoned for 21 years for the murder of Mayhem guitarist Euronymous, and charges of church ...read more.

Not satanic at all.

Varg isn't satanic. Even though he's killed a person, burned down churches, and incited racial hatred against Jews and Muslims, he's not a satanist.

Varg himself stated that he wasn't a Satanist

Burzum isn't satanic, well isn't SO satanic like mayhem, the only satanic of Varg Vikernes is than he burns churches

Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988. The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: ...read more.

I read some Cannibal Corpse lyrics, and they're not satanic, they're just sickening and gory.

I love this band more than Metallica, they're not satanic, just violent.

There not satanic there music is just violent and gruesome

Not satanic, Just brutal

Belphegor Belphegor is a blackened death metal band from Salzburg, Austria. They originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. They are named after the demon Belphegor.

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

This band is pure evil

Radio Werewolf

Was also a member of The Temple Of Set

I didn't know Taylor Swift was a Satanist.

Yes!, Since when does Heavy Metal have to be the only satanic music. Why not dark organ Gothic/Deathrock

Zeena Schreck, once member of the church of satan and daughter of Anton LaVey

Dimmu 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,

Shagrath has stated that he is satanist but he is not a usual satanist!

Dissection Dissection was a Swedish extreme metal band. They formed in 1989 by Jon Nödtveidt and later disbanded in 2006, followed by Nödtveidt's suicide. Their sound is usually described as "melodic blackened death metal".

Their music is actually good but the lead singer was seriously messed up and killed someone because he wanted to impress Satan or something like that.

This band is totally legit. Everyone on this site should read the history of the band. Real Deal big time.

Dissection is awesome but I still love Jesus Christ the lord and savior

Dissection needs to be number one and two on this list Jon would have killed the members of ghost and eaten them. Jon killed in the name of Satan twice first someone else them himself. His suicide note read "I'm going away, I'm going to Transylvania" What did ghost every do put on some masks oh so edgy
