At War with Satan is the third album by the extreme metal band Venom, released in April 1984. It is a concept album that tells the story of a war between Heaven and Hell which the latter side wins. It was touted as Venom's crossover into mainstream music, but failed to do so. Shortly after it went on sale, the HMV record chain withdrew the album from its shelves because of its anti-Christian content.

At War With Satan (LP, Album, M/Print, Gat). Still, there's an evident lack of punch and dynamics in this reissue. Good point is that the gatefold looks pretty cool, and this 2xLP reissue includes a shitload of b-sides and alternate recordings, making it a good compilation.
So when it came time to record their third album, At War with Satan, the band took desperate measures to try and validate both their technical ability as musicians and their songwriting capabilities. Their folly gave birth to the album's bloated magnum opus of a title track - a twenty-minute concept piece/sonic ordeal taking up the album's entire first half and dedicated to the lord of darkness himself (no, not Ozzy, the Devil)
