It depends. If your talking about Ozzy's sabbath, i don't think so. Though some lyrics contain evil imagery, they are not promoting satanism. I am not a satanist and believe in god and love sabbath. The reason why their music contains some evilness in it is because it was their new expierment of creating a scarier rock. "Instead of people going to see scary movies, why not listen to scary music?" Ozzy said once. If your talking after Ozzy though, you'll find some albums are very satanic such as Born Again. Some Dio stuff is across the line, but some of it, if you are not a satanist, is good.
