Satanic Rites

This UK band released a 7" single on the Heavy Metal label in 1981 before releasing two self-financed albums in 1985 and 1987. Not nearly as sinister or as dark as their name might imply, Satanic Rites opted for a more melodic take on the NWOBHM style, and was one of the few bands at the time employing a female vocalist. Not a bad band by any stretch, but they were a little late to the NWOBHM game and without a label to back them, they were destined for minor success at best.
