SATAN MADE ME DO IT is a monthly metal show on Rádio Quântica (www.radioquantica.com) conjured in the fiery chasms of hell for a single purpose: to inflict as much pain and pleasure as sonically possible.
You might as well go straight to the second hour. What our guest for this show accomplishes is nothing short of amazing: a black/death metal DJ set. An actual live extreme metal DJ set fresh and invigorating in a way we haven’t listened before.
This is what SATAN MADE ME DO IT is all about. We invited this confrontational visual artist from the Azores, MÁRCIO MATOS, mostly known in the Portuguese underground clubbing for being a founder and visual image creator for Príncipe Discos, hands down the most vital and refreshing dance music label in the country; and the guy behind the counter at Flur, this influential record shop in Lisbon. He’s also heading his own experimental music label, Noisendo (for which he keeps trying to hire black metal acts) and is a revered DJ playing at the clubs that matter.
What people don’t know is that, while coming from electronics and dance music, Márcio Matos is a profound adept of all things black and death metal. The rawest and most aggressive the better. That fucking shows, because he brings his taste and DJ skills and create this mind-blowing hour of screwed up music.
This all makes it even more sorrowful and frankly pitiful that the vast majority of metalheads can’t appreciate listening to metal outside of concerts (we’ll give you that, nothing beats a metal live show) or radio and dj playlists. They can’t get around their heads that maybe listening to a DJ playing metal just to find out about new stuff or listening to the same stuff in a different way is actually a good thing. Well, mates, we can’t help you except by keep doing this.
Stress just doesn’t get to us. This show happened mere days before our dj set at Santa Maria Summer Fest, in Beja, but we came prepared to deliver to goods on both fronts. On this episode, hour UNO kicked so much ass that it interfered with the very cables on the studio in Radio Quântica. Great new Mefisto track, Power Trip, Arkona, Cruel Force, just *UGH!*
It got so maddening there for a second that the damn equipment started frying our selection by the end of hour two… Sorry about that!
Metal will be the end of us and till the end we’ll proclaim: ‘tis but a scratch!
Well, this was one hell of a show. For starters, we come back with another special guest. RUI VIEIRA, that’s right: he’s big game on the Portuguese underground scene thanks to a bunch of projects like Machinergy, Baktheria and Miss Cadaver. So he came. And he talked. About that new fresh album from Miss Cadaver, about his horror short movie inspired on his hometown’s folklore, while sharing with you some of the tunes that shaped his taste and career. Our chat with Rui (hour TWO of the show) is in Portuguese, but there’s enough classic songs in there to keep you going if you’re not from these shores.
Metal and Hardcore are two faces of the same coin for Rui, so on hour ONE of the show it just made sense for SATAN MADE ME DO IT to pave the way with mainly good metal-punk stuff. You’ll like it and that’s a promise.
This one we did with our guns showing and our sleeves pushed-up. All business and all pleasure. Like a couple of worn-out sheriffs looking to start something. After a very important message to our fans we riot with outlaw country, proto affairs, metal-punk, a whole death metal chapter and who knows what else. Almost as if we went on a circle laying waste, door to door, track to track. To hell and back again: a tale of song by SATAN MADE ME DO IT.
On this show, life just takes over. One of us just got through a terrible month’s work. The other had barely survived an ungodly afternoon at the IRS. Both of us had been listening to a lot of death metal. It is therefore not surprising that this was bound to be one hell of a cutthroat attitude show. No moody intros, it’s full throttle from the start. Lots of cult stuff, lots of fresh goodies already from 2017.
We did this show 100% live on studio. We spilled our guts out as we took our whisky in.
Kinda at a loss for words here. Not that we don’t have anything to say; we’d just rather use our fists. That pretty much sums up this here spectacle of fast pedaling and hard hitting music – one of our all-time favorites, mind you.
Probably the most freestyle slash of satanic audio we ever put together. And you know what? If that’s wrong, we sure as hell don’t want to be right.
HERE IT IS. It finally happened. This one took some time to get uploaded. Sorry for that.
First show of 2017, recorded at the Rádio Quântica studios in Lisbon. No guests, just us doing and talking shit. Pretty much very freestyle this one. We looked back not in anger, but in love and awe with some of the tracks we played and prized the most in 2016 and played them AGAIN. But there’s also a bunch of new fresh stuff you’ll be mad not to listen to.
We start the show in a shadowy, menacing but overall enjoyable tone, go full party mode right after, and somewhere along the way end up in a really dark, slow, depressing place only to get back again on our feet and just run free. Tears of sadness, tears of anger, tears of joy. Wild mood swings. Pretty epic stuff. Enjoy!
