Most Satanic BandsFor everyone that wants to know some really evil bands if you like them or want to stay away from them.
The Top Ten
I couldn't understand the lyrics when I listened to one of the songs. I'll take that as a good thing. - CharismaticKat
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 allV 42 Comments
Come on it’s mayhem, they used a real dead body as an album cover
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 toV 36 Comments
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
They are poseurs. There lead singer doesent know a thing about Satanism. he's one of the biggest poseurs in metal
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.V 21 Comments
Most misunderstood band ever. - Userguy44
I love these guys there songs are the best
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.V 36 Comments
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.
They scare the crap out of me. First off, sac-religious names and symbols like the upside down cross, star and the goat head are bad enough. they literally have an album called "the satanist" number 1 EVIL band stay away from them!
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.
These guys aren't satanic. they may sing about the devil and demons sometimes but I believe non of them are Satanists. and I think nergal changes his religion from time to time. I'm not sure.V 27 Comments
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!V 1 Comment
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?
All lyrics are Satan glorifying
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.V 4 Comments
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!V 2 Comments
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 most evil band in the world
Isn't Satan the bassist for this band?
They truly are one the most satanic bands I have ever heard of
I myself a pretty big fan of black and death metal is too scared to see them live
YES! Put it at number 1 NOW!V 11 Comments
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.
Satanic in all ways
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 - ryanrimmelV 24 Comments
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
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. - BlackMetalHoundoom
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
No way are they satanic, Just hated. These guys were in fact One of my Favorite bands in 8 grade - vidkid13
THEY ARE REALLY SATANIC! MORE SATANIC THAN GORGOROTH OR MAYHEM OR EVEN BLACK METAL! (sarcasm)
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?
Being a deathcore is not being satanic
In flames is not satanic
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? - GREYBOYYV 15 Comments
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...
These guys are awesome...
Pure symphonic black metal band.
Their songs is awesome starting with flute,growling, keyboard..
Thumbs up for Antim Grahan.
Best Track list
3-ruin of immortals
4-angel eternally burn
5-in love with suicide
8-Encrypting the darkness
9-Hallowed be thy name
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
Burzum isn't satanic, well isn't SO satanic like mayhem, the only satanic of Varg Vikernes is than he burns churchesV 10 Comments
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. - GREYBOYY
There not satanic there music is just violent and gruesome
Not satanic, just gore obcessed like all death metal - Morbid_DethV 2 Comments
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 evilV 2 Comments
Was also a member of The Temple Of Set
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
Zeena Schreck, Daughter of Anton LaVey. Once church of Satan and member of The Temple of Set
I love this band, this band is my life I really wanna go to one of their concerts :(
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,V 4 Comments
Atheist is way different.. Idiots...
Hey! They have awesome lyrics!
You're so stupid, BMTH's lead singer, Oliver Sykes, believes in neither God nor Lucifer...
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.V 3 Comments
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
These guys are genuine as opposed to some of the wannabe satanists on this list, they should be #1V 3 Comments
Who needs satan when you got god
Who needs a ride to church on sunday? We will pick you up in our sunday school van. We can discuss which church we will be leaving you behind on our way to the services. Feel free to bring your wife and kids.
Oh I love their all songs - Ananya
"Who needs a god, when you've got Satan? " - ryanrimmelV 3 Comments
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.
Love them! They are one of my favorite bands
What idiot ass hole put this band this high on the list, or on the list at all!
Not at all a "satanic band".
Don't lie they are so not satanicV 2 Comments
"God of terror, very low dost thou bring us, very low hast thou brought us..."
The most intellectual Satanic band on this list!
Chris Mccarter, LaVeyan Satanist
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
Of course! Why, how the hell could look any thrash metal song with christian lyrics? Enough stupid...
Slayer back in the day was very much considered a Satanic band. But compared to what else that has come out they are not so dangerous. Deicide and Morbid Angel is two of the evilest bands out there. Now on to the subject of Tom Araya being a Catholic. (I am a Christian) Christianity and Catholicism is not the same at all. (Christians follow and worship and pray to JESUS CHRIST who is GOD). (Catholics pray to and worship Mother Mary who was just a human being, therefore that is Idol worship) and that in itself is Satanic. - LifeWithDanieL
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.
Slayer is not satanic. They do have Satan imagery and satanic lyrics but their lead singer, Tom Araya, is a devout catholic. Yeah, he sings about stuff that other Catholics will shun him for. People need to be more open minded these days. - SirSkeletorThe3rdV 11 Comments
Slipknot isn't satanic - DarkBoi-X
Because they wear masks doesn't mean that they are satanic. - Userguy44
One of my most liked bands
Okay, they're a great metal band, but they are in no way, satanic ever. No matter how hard they try, they still won't be satanic. - SirSkeletorThe3rdV 17 Comments
Not Satanic, They only sing Hatred and Violence similar to Nu Metal - vidkid13
Not satanic at all
What? LOB satanic? Some lyrics about fake messiah (Antichrist) but that doest make Lamb Of God satanic. - GREYBOYY
Atheist, but not satanic. I know their former name was burn the priest, but whatever. Part of the reason why they changed it was because they didn't want to be viewed as a satanic band. - AngryByrdV 3 Comments
They write use perspective from a sick Christian priest to write lyrics
Great band but I don't think they're satanic. They just have disgusting lyrics.
They have sick lyrics about killing and torturing Christ's children and babies but I don't think they ever wrote about worshipping satan. - Metalmaniakkk
Great band! Better lyrics!V 4 Comments
They have made a song titled "Dear God" Sorry, but hat isn't Satanic! One of my favorite bands.
*sees song titled God Hates Us*
"Oh my goodness the power of Christ compels you Jesus protect me from those demons I do not want to be sacrificed to the devil by that demonic death metal band called Avenged Sevenfold"
Jeez. It's just one song. It's not even about hating god, it's more about when you're in a situation where a lot happens to you and you think "God must hate me" like Kerry King said about slayer's album God Hates Ud All. Labeling Avenged Sevenfold as satanic is highly inaccurate.
The song God Hates Us is not about hating God, it's meant to symbolize hopelessness. This coming from a huge fan
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 calledV 13 Comments
King diamond is the steven king of music, very talented band two thumbs up!
I have all. Albums as well as the ones when he was in mercyful fate
He used to be a satanist but he claims it was mainly for shock value. He gave up all the satanic stuff
King diamond truly worships the devil luciferV 10 Comments
It took me really long to find this
Awesome Music, great voice and
impressive literary lyrics. Rest in Chaos Jon.
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 edgyV 7 Comments
Most of the lyrics are about satanism. - GREYBOYY
Now this should be number one, compared to black metal now it may not be as satanic as the others but Venom stared the black metal genre.
Their not satanic their just a bunch of homo's who thing they started black metal, but it's nothing more than hard rock at best.
How is A7x satanist? They're nowhere near satanistV 2 Comments
Lol, "Satanic? " Just because they did a song called "Highway To Hell" or "Hells Bells" doesn't mean they're satanic! - galaxyfox
Haha.. the only thing "satanic" about the band, is how Axel ruined it by joining
Only a idiot thinks acdc is satanic. Whoever put this list together needs there head examined
Because of the way they have songs like Highway To Hell and Hells BellsV 3 Comments
The name sucks man!
Their name is "Rotting Christ." -. - How are they not satanic? I don't even need to listen to their music to know this is pure Satanism.
Wow... you think that just because of their name that they're satanic? And they call metalheads close minded. It's like someone saying that Sodom is satanic, or that Slayer is satanic. It just doesn't make sense. If it's not you're thing, that's fine, but do some research. That's it.
PATHETIC ( I GUESS THEY GOT THE KEY TO HELLS DOOR, I WILL TAKE IT AND LOCK THE DOOR BEHIND THEM AND ALL THE SATANIC BANDS)!V 2 Comments
Lol how - PumpkinKing109
LOL...Manson was obsessed with Helter Skelter which came out before him. John comparing them to Jesus not how he meant it. They were always high and he used a poor analogy and did what he could to explain it. THEY WERE AND ARE NOT SATANIC! Satanism teaches hate for all so how would a satanist make a song like Imagine? Get your fact before posting here people, but then again that's the problem today. Everyone gets a voice with social media even those who are uninformed and don't take the time to research before posting. ONE LOVE!
The beatles were not satanic, a lot of their satanic criticism comes from older people who criticized their abstract musical style!
Just consider the song helter skelter, being linked to those Manson murders.V 5 Comments
They suck butts, but they're surprisingly not satanic.
This website is so wrong. There is nothing to do with satan in there songs. Its only just sex :D
Yes this band may send you to hell jk jk
There Guitarist is Satanist Satan is Bad - vidkid13
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's Altars Of Madness, Blessed Are The Sick and Covenant (most about occult) but the final albums are not satanic. - GREYBOYY
Should be in top three. one direction is higher? since when did one direction be more satanic than piles of little arms, which is a song about chopping off little childrens arms because they prayed to god - Morbid_DethV 3 Comments
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.
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.
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?
Brutal band! Love them awesome album covers, pretty dark lyrics in this band and that is how like it!
Actually they are very Satanic in their concerts - I've seen them live!V 4 Comments
Vortuga takes you to hell. - Morbid_Deth
They have some dark stuff but no one knows if they're satanic or not - Metalmaniakkk
They aren't satanic just because their music is the most terrifying thing ever/
