Satanic Threat
In to Hell EP (Reissue)

One might have thought to himself at least once in his life that it would be unbelievably bitchin’ if Minor Threat sang only about anti-Christian themes and the Devil instead of all that straight edge and political mumbo jumbo. Or, if that would never happen, it would still be cool if a band came along and fashioned their sound entirely around Minor Threat but instead of singing about any straight edge and political mumbo jumbo, they sang about anti-Christian themes and the Devil.

I mean, who doesn’t want that?

Thankfully all of our prayers were answered a few years ago because Satanic Threat unleashed In To Hell. The Ohio-based hardcore/quasi metal band, comprised largely of members of Nunslaughter and Midnight, has done what Minor Threat should have done 25 years ago. However, if you’ve never had the chance to jam to the 11 or so minutes that made up the original In To Hell EP, now’s your chance to scoop it up. Hell’s Headbangers, per the norm, has done a tremendous job in re-releasing an otherwise forgotten-about gem and packed it with plenty of bonuses.

Along with the original eight tracks from In To Hell, HH has tacked on eight live tracks comprising of the EP in its entirety (save for opener “Guilty of Hating Christ”) and a live cover version of “(I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone”, the old Paul Revere & The Raiders song that was made famous by The Monkees, Sex Pistols, Minor Threat, Six Feet Under, and about 97 others.

In To Hell will be over before you know it and it’s like a trip down Memory Lane, though you’ll likely be confused and wondering if Minor Threat was a Jesus-hating band back when you were a tike. It’s clearly a fun side quest to partake until the bigger, better releases hit the shelves, one to not take seriously. Enjoy it for what it is and get it because it’s entertaining as all hell, pun clearly intended.

    Minor Threat didn’t really sing any political songs at all, bro. did you ever listen to them?

    that said, this band is hysterical. Guilty of Hating Christ is amazing.
