4 / 5
➤ "The right combination between Ministry and Combichrist … gives you the thrill from the first to the last beat … give 'Human Sacrifice' a try f.e. and you won't be disappointed."
(The Bible Of Metal)
4 / 5
➤ "… the magnificent 'The Faces Of The Devil', which is danceable through and through, with a surprising bridge where the synthesizers go completely out of control … gives back its full meaning to the genre that has sometimes been called 'Dance Metal', mostly found in NDH … I am excited ... it's varied, it's rhythmic, and it doesn't get too edgy or whiny … a pure vitamin bar distilled over forty minutes of cracking … so don't let the name stop you …"
85 / 100
➤ "… piercing Heavy influences … incredibly effective! … melts Industrial roots with hooking but dark sonorities to develop its unhealthy universe, which will for sure seduce its audience …"
8,5 / 10
➤ "… the album takes on a life and development of its own … senses a musical gradation, the melodies become richer and more haunting … the whole atmosphere thickens, begins to captivate and takes the listener on an interesting journey through a mystical world of occult rebellion …"
(Metal Hangar 18)

➤ "… great … you should check out this album …"
(A Different Shade Of Black Metal)
7,5 / 10
➤ "Guter Industrial Metal mit viel okkulten Bezügen und schwarzhumorigem Satanismus, das sind KING SATAN auch auf ihrem dritten Album 'Occult Spiritual Anarchy'. Und launiges Ohrenfutter für Fans harter, aber zugänglicher Melodien."
7 / 10
➤ "… viel Keyboards, viele Beats, erstaunlich guter Gesang aus der Kehle des Herren King Aleister Satan …"
6,8 / 10
➤ "… ein recht harter Sound, viel mit Keyboards unterlegt und in vielen Fällen Beats, Beats, Beats … ein einfaches Konzept, was natürlich bei Industrial Metal-begeisterten Fans bestimmt funktionieren wird …"
(Time For Metal)
3,5 / 5
➤ "Domestic KING SATAN is a completely different country, as the band is not content with superficial tinkering with the subject. The band squeezes the aesthetics of the devil into its music, its black core. 'Occult Spiritual Anarchy' is like a satanic manifesto full of anarchy, chaos and Metal rattling."
➤ "… those who (like yours truly) really enjoyed 'King Fucking Satan' but were a bit nonplussed by 'I Want You to Worship Satan' should find themselves quite pleased by 'Occult Spiritual Anarchy', which takes everything that made the former album work so well and amplifies it, both musically and lyrically …"
(Third Eye Cinema)
➤ "… I fucking love the song … it has electronic elements … it has drums… bass … guitars … it’s heavy … you can hear the other instruments outside of the electronic stuff … that’s it I really like about bands like this one … "
➤ "… punkten die Finnen vor allem mit zwei markanten Merkmalen: Nonkonformität und Qualität … griffig-eingängiges Industrial Metal-Material … hitverdächtige Ohrwürmer … international vollauf konkurrenzfähig … "
➤ "… knocked it out of the park … each time they release a new album they manage to surpass their previous release – and considering what high regard I hold their debut in, this is no mean feat. 'Occult Spiritual Anarchy' is a unique bit of work, and once again showcases KING SATAN at the top of their game."
➤ "… a dark industrial offering combines extreme Metal and danceable industrial, with themes of philosophy, occultism, blasphemy, and black humour … the style is a bit evasive to pin down, but that just means it will appeal to a wide variety of folks …"
➤ "… a real tight combination of ‘Black Metal/Symphonic Metal’ that makes 50 parts brutal and other 50 elegant and mesmerizing like your listening to some demented form of musical or orchestral performance … a fantastic effort by the band and I’m very happy this was my first listen to them … if you’re a metalhead then this should be an album you can’t afford to miss!"
➤ "What would it be like to mix Behemoth with Industrial Electro? ... this work, apart from its peculiar sound and its incredible vocal registers, stands out for its incredible production … an album without a doubt that we had marked on our calendar and that will surely not disappoint you …"
➤ "… sticks to its own theme from start to finish … intertwined with occultism, anarchy and absurdism … there is a good dose of humour in the band's music … contains an overdose of anarchy … a carnivalesque deep cut into a world where everything is a little off-kilter … heavy mongering, chilling synths and a bunch of brilliant guitar riffs … it will be interesting to see where the band goes next …"
➤ "… a linear album from head to toe … KING SATAN’s secret is to balance both elements of electronica keyboarding and Metal guitars … a flaming combination … be careful not to get addicted …"
➤ "… wonderfully blends an impatient aggressiveness with impressively streamlined pop-hooks and the combination really works … in terms of aesthetic and energy level, we’re on par, and they’re blistering through this … dramatic listening experience … for an industrial-tinged sub-genre of Metal this has no right being this catchy … straight-up, hard hitting … well worth checking out … Occult Spiritual Anarchy? It’s the kind of fun you’d risk getting burnt at the stake for …"
(Gav The Gothic Chav)
➤ "Keine Gnade! … satte Synth-Sounds, hämmernde Drums und kraftstrotzender Gesang … wird das Ganze zwischendurch durch epische Parts ergänzt … Dampfhammer 'The Faces Of The Devil' der in musikalischer Hinsicht genau die Bösartigkeit ausstrahlt, die man erwartet … einiges an Abwechslung … wenn man den Begriff 'Industrial' liest, weiß man vorher selten ganz genau, was einen erwartet. Im Fall von KING SATAN ist es der Weg der eher gnadenlosen, fast brutalen Töne und Vocals …"
➤ "... boundless aural alchemy ... maintains an industrial focus while highlighting other symphonic and metallic qualities, and that reaches a higher level by incorporating newer percussive and soloing elements ... haunting … effects make for dynamic and multi-layered anthems that explore unique levels to engage the consciousness … encourage deeper contemplation … energetic and diverse vocals ... all of KING SATAN's works, and now especially the achievement of this impressive grimoire, should easily captivate those open to Metal's more eccentric possibilities ..."
➤ "… one of those bands destined to split the audience in two: either you love them or you hate them … more fierce than ever … I personally find them hilarious, both musically and visually, with their mix of occultism and humour, and I think they have what it takes to be known and appreciated by a wider audience …"
(The Murder Inn)
➤ "You can't help but like KING SATAN's style, it's one of those either/or bands … whatever you think of the band, the quality of the music keeps getting better."
