Live To Ride
Satanic Rites are another band to categorise as "N.W.O.B.H.M. hidden gems" with this, their debut single. While, unlike some of their peers, they managed to release an album in the same decade (two, in fact), this single is their best known work. Live To Ride may not be played at 1000mph, but it has a swagger and swerve that many N.W.O.B.H.M. bands lacked until much later in the genre's gestation. A rare slice of N.W.OB.H.M. but one that showed what the genre could do with a slight tweak.
