SATARIEL (SWEDEN)


SATARIEL was a 1993 union of erstwhile members of defunct outfits BEHEADED and DAWN OF DARKNESS namely vocalist Pär Johansson on vocals, guitarist Magnus Alakangas and bassist Mikael Degerman. The band's name is taken from an ancient work called The Book of Enoch, where Satariel was the 17th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels mentioned in the book. A later recruit was guitarist Mikael Grankvist for the debut demo 'This Heavens Fall'. SATARIEL added Matsmalm after this recording but his exit followed swiftly after. 1995 also saw the departure of Grankvist. Further changes apparent on the second session 'Hellfuck' included the addition of guitarist Fredrik Andersson and drummer Andreas Nilzon. By 1996 Nilzon was out of the picture and Robert Sundelin of NECROMICON took the drum stool position. However, SATARIEL was put on ice for a lengthy period when both Sundelin and Degerman undertook their military service. When SATARIEL reformed Grankvist too was back in the fold for the debut album 'Lady Lust Lilith' on Pulverized Records. That same year found Sundelin taking on extracurricular drum duties with DEATHBOUND. SATARIEL guitarist Mikael Grankvist also operates in THE MOANING. Between 1993 and 1995 Johansson also put time into his side project BELSEMAR releasing the demos 'De Svarta Gudarnas Sömn' and 'Epistles Of Pain'. Pär Johansson and Mikael Degerman were to be found as a participant in the Death / Thrash formation TORCHBEARER that same year, a collaboration between SOLAR DAWN, UNMOORED and SATARIEL personnel.
