Greek Satanic blackened thrash outfit SATAN'S WRATH has inked a deal with Metal Blade Records. The band's debut album, "Galloping Blasphemy", will be released on September 25 in North America (one day earlier in Europe). According to a press release, the CD contains "nine tracks of unholy terror."

Formed in 2011 by multi-instrumentalist Tas Danazoglou (vocals, drums and bass) and Stamos K (guitar), SATAN'S WRATH deal in a style of heavy metal music which harks back to the times when the death, black and thrash genres were all considered one in the same, and only leather, spikes and bullets were real!

Tas Danazoglou comments on the deal with Metal Blade: "I bought 'Show No Mercy' by SLAYER when it was first released and have dreamt of the day when my own unholy necro-noise would be unleashed upon the earth via the same channels. Literally, this is my nightmare come true."

Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records, which celebrates its 30-year anniversary this year, states: "When I first heard SATAN'S WRATH, it transported me back three decades to the early days of the label when I loved bands like SLAYER (who released their first three titles, between 1983 and 1985, on Metal Blade) and POSSESSED (whose first commercial release was the track 'Swing Of The Axe', which opened the Metal Blade compilation 'Metal Massacre XI' in 1985). What will always impress me about the heavy metal genre is its ability to borrow from the past and boldly wear its influences on its sleeve, while still sounding fresh and relevant to the time it was created. SATAN'S WRATH are one of those bands, and will be right at home alongside the other acts on the Metal Blade roster — past, present and future."
