Page 67: Devil Music!

All of the bands at this point in The Billionth Monkey are mentioned because their songs, album titles, or merch contain #DevilReferences.

I blogged here previously about the metal band Behemoth, but to recap they released their tenth album, The Satanist, in 2014, and the official video for the title track on September 15, 2015:

Behemoth’s official video for "The Satanist," released on September 15, 2015.

Avenged Sevenfold uses a lot of Biblical and Apocalyptic language in their songs, and one of their T-shirts features the number 666.  Also, singer, M. Shadows summarized the tracks on their sixth studio album, Hail to the King! (2013) as “there’s a silver-tongued Devil …luring you down and telling you he can make your life better” (“Shepherd of Fire”) and “the dark lord coming to save you and resurrecting Hell to do it” (“Requiem”).

Merch for the band Avenged Sevenfold (AX7) uses #DeviLReferences.
The Devil’s Blood are a Dutch occult rock band whose very name is a #DevilReference. Also, band member Selim “SL” Lemouchi reports that he is heavily influenced by his belief in Satansim.

Finally, Sabbath Assembly is an occult rock band from TX and NY whose discography includes songs like “I, Satan” (2014) and “Ave Satanas” (2015).

Kids these days, with their devil music...
