Band: Satanic Rites
Release: Live to Ride/Hit and Run (Single)
Country: United Kingdom
Year: 1981
Label: Heavy Metal Records

The very first single by UK legends Satanic Rites, recorded and released before they acquired Deborah Webster as lead vocalist. ┬áThe b-side “Hit and Run” is the sure winner here, as it features one hell of a tasty riff and a chorus that absolutely compels you to chant along, making it one of the most memorable anthems of the NWOBHM era.
