Top 10 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 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).

One of the worst bands out there. They worship basically empty space because satan is not real and that "black mass" bullcrap was some of the stupidest stuff I've ever heard of. They think that putting sheep heads on stakes and "crucifying" nude models makes them metal. They're posers if they think that wearing spikes and worshiping an absent deity makes them metal. Being metal is about making metal music and not worshipping a so called "satan" and trying to look hardcore just to make profits. It's ridiculous. Also, they profess to opposing Christianity, yet they're doing exactly what Christians do except with satanism. They're trying to force satanism down people's throats, or through their ears rather, and are doing a horrible job at it.

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!

This band is insane. They literally performed Satanic rituals at a concert in Poland and one of their members tortured a guy who broke into his house. Forget Venom and Slayer, they only used Satanic imagery to scare people and grab attention. These guys are the real deal.

Very very satanic I saw the music video for about 3 seconds and all I could see was women on burning crosses... Can someone please tell me if this has anything to the with the illuminati going on with pop and metal music? I love metal music I also like clothing brands like "black craft cult" but this band has taken everything Way too far

2 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 corpse and used one of them as the front cover for one of their live albums) and the 1993 murder of Euronymous by former member Varg Vikernes, of Burzum.

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.

I'm seriously surprised to see how this band is still going on today. After all the screwed up crap they did back then (lead singer kills himself, guitarist takes a picture of lead singer's dead body and places it as the cover of one of their albums, guitarist openly admits that he's a satanist and wants to spread hatred, sorrow, and evil, bassist kills guitarist, the list goes on).

Except perhaps for Dissection, these guys were the most directly and honestly Satanic group of all time. Their songs glorified anti-Christian themes and promoted Satanism as a positive thing. The only thing that makes them second to Dissection on my list is that they were also influenced just as significantly by Pagan themes.

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.

3 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 being a theistic satanist, even going as far as to repeatedly branding an inverted cross into his forehead on at least 12 different occasions.

If a band or person chooses to be satanic, it's their choice, primitive right of any human being. They're not hurting you.
Funny how people can wage wars in the name of religion, kill others and still question harmless satanic guys who mind their business.

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.

I used to listen to this band not knowing it was one of the most satanic bands. This is one of the few bands too satanic to listen to. I'll listen to Slayer, Venom, and Mercyful Fate, but not Decide.

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

4 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.

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.

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.

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..

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!

5 Ghost Ghost is a Swedish rock/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 Emeritus. However, in 2018 the Emeritus lineage was replaced with Cardinal Copia. Ghost gained mainstream success in 2015 with the release of their 3rd album, Meliora, which won them a Grammy.

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.

I honestly don't even remember how I started listening to Ghost. I just know one day I was listening to some Christian Rock, and the next day I'm listening to Year Zero and Ritual. So far, they're my second favorite band, besides Tool. I'm just so excited I get to see them this October in L.A.! Let's just see how my religious dad reacts to the band when he goes with me! HAHAA!

6 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

Marduk is untouchable, matchless and legendary.

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

7 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.

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!

Dark Funeral is one of the best satanic bands.

The Logo is satanic and their songs.

These guys are totally evil with a capital E all of their songs are about satan they swedish

8 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?

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

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

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

9 Nunslaughter

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!

BEST BAND EVER! Their songs are pretty catchy. I could listen to them til the day I die :D They are by far the most Satanic band ever.. If you hate evil, love Christians, love "Jehovah", hate Demons or hate Satan, this band is not for you.

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.

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

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.

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

I don't like them because their songs don't appeal to me. I don't know why you've issues with their Satanism. They're not asking you to be a part of it. Lol. Mind your business.

The Contenders
11 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 satanic! Mitch may have been atheist when he was still alive (RIP Mitch Lucker) but they are not satanic at all

They're atheists. They're not satanists. Atheism and satanism are not the same thing.

Ugh this band sucks. Way too many anti-Christian/anti-religion lyrics.

Suicide isn't says not satanic at all. Whoever put this here is a moron.

12 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.

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 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.

Yeah, Cradle of Filth is so evil and satanic and stuff.
In fact, some of the band members told me last night that they had always wanted to run into a Sunday school and pee on the children, and then cut themselves in front of them! You'd HAVE to be filled with demons to do that!
Vote this higher, and keep the kids away from this crap-HORRIBLE music!

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 group along with Slayer and Pantera and a couple others activates my adrenelin rush... Slayer is Satanic and I love them... their songs helped me through a lot of heartache... ROCK ON!

13 Antim Grahan

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...

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

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

14 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.

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.

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

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!

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

15 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 arson. In prison, Burzum released 2 dark ambient albums recorded entirely on synthesizers. Burzum is still active to this day, but has never performed live.

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.

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.

His name is Varg Vikernes. One of the most well known figures in black metal.

Not satanic at all.

16 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

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

This band is pure evil

17 Radio Werewolf

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

18 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".

This man killed a guy in order to become a member of satanic order. He then went to jail to serve his sentence, and after that he recorded album called "Reinkaos" (which was completely satanic) with the members who were full on satanists, and then he killed himself in a satanic ritual. You want more SATANIC than this?

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

Jon killed a gay man, went to prison, wrote the album "Reinkaos" with new satanic band members, then killed himself. The previous band members didn't seem to have any particular satanic beliefs. I like the albums preceding Reinkaos more. Storm of the Light's Bane is my favorite album.

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.

19 Goatwhore Goatwhore is an American extreme metal band formed in 1997 in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States formed by former Acid Bath guitarist Sammy Duet. Goatwhore is known for their fast-paced fusion of black, death, and thrash metal.

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.

"Who needs a god, when you've got Satan? "

Gotta love that name and logo.

20 Dimmu Bogir

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

First time I heard these guys I was blown away they are amazing.

Pure historical Satanic imageryand real content in lyrics. I am a Satanic witch. I know culture and history..

A lot of satanic lyrics but I am not sure if they burned a lot of churches

21 Nattefrost

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.

Nothing out there more blatantly Satanic!

22 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. The name of the band comes from famous sex symbol Marilyn Monroe and famous criminal Charles Manson. Manson joined these two names together because he wanted a name combined with good (Monroe) and evil (Manson). The other members of the band have their stage names combined with the first names of famous sex symbols and the last names of famous serial killers.

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.

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.

First of all I love death metal and metalcore but 100% satanic. News flash not only his music is what predicts if he is a Satanist he is a leader of a anti Christ committee there is a bunch of videos of him on YouTube talking about it and burning bibles and what not. Just cause he is nice doesn't mean he ain't a Satanist. Murders and criminals can be very nice people as well

He's not in anyway satanic. The reason he does this kind of stuff is because he thinks that religion hurts people. He'll respect your beliefs as long as you respect his.

23 Deathspell Omega

The most intellectual Satanic band on this list!

24 King Diamond Kim Bendix Petersen, better known by his stage name King Diamond, is a Danish heavy metal musician. He is known for his extensive vocal range, usually sung in falsetto. King Diamond was originally known as the vocalist for Mercyful Fate, but has become notorious for his horror themed Concept albums that he has released as a solo artist. He is also known for his Satanism which he does not see as a religion, but a philosophy by which he lived even before reading Anton LaVey's The Satanic Bible.

King diamond is the steven king of music, very talented band two thumbs up!

He used to be a satanist but he claims it was mainly for shock value. He gave up all the satanic stuff

He's a LaVeyan Satanist, which is really different from Theistic Satanism.

King Diamond is satanic. He is a member of the Churcg of Satan, look it up.

25 Venom Venom are an English extreme metal band formed in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne. Coming to prominence towards the end of the new wave of British heavy metal, Venom's first two albums—Welcome to Hell and Black Metal—are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general.

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 satanist

Most of the lyrics are about satanism.
