Many say that music is a young man’s game, but there’s evidence to the contrary such as last year’s Triptykon record, Melana Chasmata, and this year’s Paradise Lost record, The Plague Within.

Add Atom by Atom, the fourth album by NWOBHM underdogs Satan to that list. The band still plays the not-quite-thrash style that they always did, but this new material doesn’t feel like it’s couched in nostalgia. The members of Satan have heard what’s been done with velocity and note choices since. The modern informs their more classic approach, and the result is probably their most satisfying album since the original Court in the Act.
