Retribution Alive: 5 Year Anniversary headlined by Satan on Saturday 24th November 2018
Saturday 24th November marks a special day for Retribution Alive and we have SATAN along for the party, fresh from releasing new album 'Cruel Magic'!
Five years ago we started as a DJ night upstairs at our legendary, original home, the Intrepid Fox near Tottenham Court road near the West End. Since then we have traveled to various venues across London including The Lounge (Archway), Purple Turtle, Black Heart, The Dev, Electrowerktz, Unicorn, Nambucca, Underdog Gallery, Big Red, Scala, 12 Bar, New Cross Inn, Fiddlers Elbow, Amersham Arms, Wig & Gown, Amwell Arms, Upstairs @ The Garage, Kings Arms (Bexleyheath) and the Plough & Harrow (Leytonstone), bringing you a mix of bands and DJs every month.
BUT... there could be only one place we hold such a commemoration and that is The Lounge in Camden, run by Arno, one of the notorious crew who manned the Fox right back at our wretched, stinking birth.
To mark the occasion we take over the WHOLE venue with SATAN, 3 support acts (TBC) and a 2 floor after show / club night running until 3am.
When people ask what you did THIS weekend the answer is simple. You partied with SATAN...

While standard bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for '83's seminal 'Court In the Act' and '87's 'Suspended Sentence', with 'Cruel Magic' Satan make it abundantly clear that in 2018 they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015's mighty 'Atom By Atom', in the process displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.
Having reunited in 2012 and returned to touring duty, Satan - comprised of six-stringers Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey, bassist Graeme English, drummer Sean Taylor and vocalist Brian Ross - once more proved their collective mettle with 2013's 'Life Sentence' and follow-up 'Atom By Atom', both records critically acclaimed and maintaining the high standards of their earlier releases.
Soon enough, the itch to be making new music prickled at the members, workaholic Tippins in fact recommencing writing almost as soon as they completed 'Atom By Atom', and they began to work on the material that would ultimately comprise 'Cruel Magic'.
Represented both lyrically and in the record's artwork, Cruel Magic stands as 'a personification of injustice in our world. Anyone who knows us knows we never sing about the Devil except in the most abstract terms. That said, we have no interest in light-hearted subject matter either. You will never hear the words 'rock and roll' in a Satan song, nor any references to s##, drugs, fast cars or motorcycles. But, generally bad things that happen in the world, real or imagined, and injustice in particular, has always been a big part of what drives us to write lyrics.'
