01. Jonathan Davis – What It Is
02. Crosses – Bitches Brew
03. The Pretty Reckless – Heaven Knows
04. Prep School – Freak On A Leash (Korn cover)
05. Deftones – Sextape
06. Circa Survive – Schema
07. Dorothy – Raise Hell
08. Skid Row – 18 And Life

13. Slaughter – Up All Night
14. Palaye Royale – Mr. Doctor Man
15. Asking Alexandria – Into The Fire
16. The Dillinger Escape Plan – One Of Us Is The Killer
17. Nightwish – Alpenglow
18. Parkway Drive – Devil’s Calling
19. Sleeping With Sirens – Trouble
20. Bad Omens – Glass Houses

Not to be confused with the other American Satan soundtrack, performed by the imaginary band from the film, The Relentless (see my review here), this album is a compilation of other tracks used in the movie.

Sumerian Records, who were also behind the film (read my review here), have really pulled out all the stops with this soundtrack. They clearly had a lot riding on the success of American Satan, so they've put together an amazing collection of songs from a stunning array of artists.

This soundtrack has it all, from contemporary bands like Bad Omens and Asking Alexandria, to old school Hard Rock classics from Skid Row and Slaughter, not to mention bangers from international giants like Deftones, Parkway Drive and Nightwish.

For me the most essential tracks on here are the haunting covers of Danzig's Mother and Korn's Freak On A Leash by Prep School. Captivating stuff!

If you like all eras of Metal, and want to discover some killer tracks, this soundtrack is definitely worth some attention.
