– Provided support for Budgie at the Dundee Festival in the summer of 1981
– Gained a kind of mythical status among NWOBHM aficionados as for many years the only known fact about them was the excellent track ‘Soldiers Of War’ on the compilation “Lead Weight” (CASSETTE, Neat Records, 1981). This compilation was later released on LP by Neat/Base Records (exact year unknown but in the mid 1980s) and on CD by Neat/Castle (2002) and by Krescendo Records (2013)
– Another rather interesting and well made compilation that featured this track was “Neat Records – The First Strike Of N.W.O.B.H.M.” (CD, Metal Hammer/Elap Music, 1996) which was released in Greece only and was given away with an issue of the Greek Metal Hammer magazine.
– Satan’s Empire did had some recordings of other material but it is yet unclear if these were one or more demos that were circulated to the public or just rehearsals for their own use. Known track titles: ‘Suicidal Man’, ‘On The Road To Hell’, ‘Slaves Of Satan’, ‘Come Back’ and ‘Strange World’
– Reformed after 30 years and as per their official facebook page some material (old and new) will be released in the near future.
