This will sound like nothing you have ever listened to on a SATAN MADE ME DO IT episode. Basically at some point, after starting to develop an interest in country music, we noticed that country and metal approaches shared some similarities. After we came to listen to some of the stuff Hank Williams 3 was doing, crossing over country with metal and hardcore punk (he’s the self crowned “King of Hellbilly”), we felt curious and decided to find out if more interesting stuff was being done on this field. Well, to make a long story short, there is not a lot of stuff being done. Mainly, there is not a lot of GOOD stuff being done. Either because they’re gimmicky, not very talented or just because, beyond the Southern Rock that’s already been there for decades, the Christian fundamentalism of America’s Bible Belt could never really get in bed with the soundtrack to Hell, but that’s the truth.

We decided to go through with this anyway, and actually we like the result. This is not strictly “country”. Expect to find anything that sounds a bit western, a bit outlaw, a bit redneck and very… white. Expect also to find a lot of stand-alone side-projects and a lot of references to Hank Williams 3 (son of country legends Hank Williams Sr. and Hank Williams Jr. and a country star himself, albeit an unconventional one). As for SATAN MADE ME DO IT, we will consider this episode as some sort of a side-project too. So don’t worry: on October 3rd we’ll be back with more GRUESOME METAL!

Anyway…

Episode 14 – Eternal Summer

Episode 14 – Eternal Summer (right click to download)

Do you like it hot and steamy? Nonsense, of course you do! The songs we went with for this new SATAN MADE ME DO IT episode have one thing in common: warmness. So instead of reverb heavy thin guitar sounds and overall chilly Nordic black metal tracks expect songs so hot they’ll make you sweat like a hairy man in a sauna. That means this is generally a very freestyle episode. There’s thrash as you might have expected, but there’s also proto-metal, heavy metal, power metal and some blackened tunes.

Anything goes! Take you shirt off. Your pants too if you so wish. With SATAN MADE ME DO IT hell will never freeze over.

PLAY IT LOUD, beachgoers and party throwers! Another metalström is scheduled for September 19th.
