Today, HELLS HEADBANGERS announces the release date for two new vinyl releases: BESTIAL WARLUST’s Satan’s Fist – Demo ’96 (also to be released on limited-edition CD) will see release on October 31st, while a split 7″ between SPAWN OF SATAN and SATHANAS will see release on October 10th. Both these vinyl-exclusive releases further cement HELLS HEADBANGERS’ reputation as both the premiere metal-vinyl authority and also tastemakers of metal’s darkest, dirtiest underground. Covers, tracklistings, and exclusive streaming previews below – prepare for total desaster!
BESTIAL WARLUST – Satan’s Fist – Demo ’96 12″ MLP / limited-edition CD
Unearthed from the vault, one of the rarest entries in the BESTIAL WARLUST canon: Satan’s Fist – Demo ’96, the legendary band’s final longer-form recording. With K.K. Warslut having gone on to DESTROYER666 and Damon Bloodstorm to ABOMINATOR, the pared-down BESTIAL WARLUST were at a crucial juncture in 1996, with Skullfucker on vocals/guitars and Hellcunt on drums. Between the two of them, however, the three songs they’d record for Satan’s Fist – essentially, their 1996 demo – sound just as potent as anything on their two classic, influential full-lengths. Here, the bestial black metal they helped pioneer is tempered with a sort of gritty epicness, displaying both where BESTIAL WARLUST were coming from and, more so, where they could have gone. But with a track on a four-way split to follow a year later, the lid would then be sealed on BESTIAL WARLUST’s coffin…until now! To be released on a limited-edition CD and 12″ vinyl mastered at 45 RPM and with laser-etched B-side: feel Satan’s Fist!
1) “Left for Vultures”
2) “Hell’s Militia”
3) “Satan’s Fist”

SPAWN OF SATAN/SATHANAS – Split 7″ EP
This split 7″ celebrates ancient Evil Death Metal from America, from two of its most unsung hordes. Spawned into evil in 1988, SATHANAS are one of the oldest American blackened death cults, and their track here – “Unholy Eternal” – proves that this power-trio will never waver from their “no compromises” approach. Equally uncompromising, Jim Sadist’s pet monster SPAWN OF SATAN return after a four-year hiatus with “Ritual Murder,” a track written in 1988 yet showcasing what’s to come from these minions. America the ugly…America the EVIL!
1) SPAWN OF SATAN – “Ritual Murder”
2) SATHANAS – “Unholy Eternal”
