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

1 Gorgoroth 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.

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

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! - Kirk899

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

Infernus remains one of very few dedicated satanist's in the genre. While Gaahl and King's "satanism" was more a publicity stunt, I have no doubt in my mind that Infernus in 100% serious in his beliefs.

2 Mayhem 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.

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. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

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

Not Satanic at all. Just listen to Varg tell the story. Euronymous was a big fat poser.

3 Deicide 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.

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.

Why? Well lets see... the frontman has had the inverted cross burnt into his forehead a dozen times and has written nothing but ant-christian material for over 2 decades.

4 Ghost 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 3 studio albums and 2 EPs . Each album brings in a new version of Papa Emeritus. Ghost ...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 are awesome

5 Behemoth 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.

These and a lot of other bands need a lot of prayer...may the lord Jesus Christ shine upon you and be gracious to you, the lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace, amen..

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.

The very few songs I listened to were so scary that I had to turn them off even though I'm a Satanist who actually believes that the devil and god exist. But I might try listening to them again. I will just have to make sure that I don't get to scared.

Should be in a higher place!

7 Marduk 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 - jakkkob

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

True kick ass satanic black metal!

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

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!

All lyrics are Satan glorifying

Why is the only actual satanic band on this list at number 8?

9 Nunslaughter 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!

Such an addictive band and their music - with true brutal sense...their amazing artwork
Enough said, listen to them! - Ananya

10 Acheron 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.

The black metal band I don't like - Ananya

The Newcomers

? Eyehategod Eyehategod Eyehategod is an American sludge metal band from New Orleans that formed in 1988. They have become one of the most well known bands to emerge from the NOLA metal scene.

The Contenders

11 Cradle of Filth 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.

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

They're not Satanic, they're just gay - SirSkeletorThe3rd

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..

13 Suicide Silence 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?

They are not satanic! I don't like them but I would never call them satanists! how rude whoever wrote this

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 - SirSkeletorThe3rd

DUDE... VARG IS NOT SATANIC

15 Belphegor 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"

Belphegor is THE MOST satanic band ever

Blinding blasting, blaspheme lyrics, relentless, and satanic references, and art-work. Awesome and talented band

Um... plot twist, they're not satanists, just l;Ike venom there atheists but use that sort of imagery

16 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

I love him very much. He is my idol.

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.

Marilyn Manson is NO LONGER a Satanist. He joined the church of Satan when he was a teen as an act of rebellion against the church, and his parents. He is no longer a ember, and DOES NOT promote the occult. He has stated that even though he's not a Christian, he would share most of his ideals with those of JESUS, rather than Satan. - elves23

Satanic or not satanic he influences people to act that way even if he's not trying to.

19 Nattefrost

Underrated...one of the most important satanic bands - Ananya

Nothing out there more blatantly Satanic!

Nattefrost would be the most outwardly satanic bands I've ever seen, next to Gorgoroth. The thing that makes Nattefrost stand out for me is the comprehensible vulgarity and satanic words in their lyrics. It's honestly everything the opposite of gospel music!

Nattefrost also pioneered the band Carpathian Forest, and they are just as Satanic.

20 Watain 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 - maverick88

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

If you focus on the lyrics and ideology of the bandmembers Watain is without a doubt one of the most satanic bands ever. Going to their concerts is like going to a black mass. Hail satan!
