About “Satan, My Master”
“Satan, My Master” is a hidden song by Dimmu Borgir from their album Death Cult Armageddon.
This is a cover of “Satan My Master,” originally recorded by Swedish black metal band Bathory, who released it as a single in 1984 and later included it on their 1998 compilation album, Jubileum Volume III. The song features fast-paced, aggressive guitar riffs, pounding drums, and harsh vocals, typical of Bathory’s early black metal sound.
Lyrically, “Satan My Master” is a tribute to Satan, and its lyrics are full of references to Satanic rituals and worship. The song’s opening lines, “In the name of Satan, I conjure the darkness / Evil, gather ’round for tonight we summon / The unholy, the dwelling-place of demons / Take now thy shape in the pentagram”, set the tone for the rest of the song.
Despite its controversial subject matter, “Satan My Master” is considered a classic of the black metal genre and has been covered by several other bands over the years.
