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.
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.
It’s been a year last week since SATAN MADE ME DO IT are, well… doing it.
How has it come to this? When we started this we thought having the motivation to do it for a year would be a bold enough goal. Week in, week out inflicting as much pain and pleasure as sonically possible by giving you the metal that deserves to be listened to. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. And we knew it was not going to be easy.
SATAN MADE ME DO IT is a challenge. To you first and foremost, dear minion. Not everyone can deal with it. Only some of you will come back. Just a few will “share” it and “like” it. We understand. Take this episode, for instance: it’s a collection of some of the most twisted, rawest, sickest, defying, ear splitting and mental health disregarding songs ever produced by some of the vilest human beings on earth.
So why? Why keep on doing it? Well, because we like it. Because Satan is down there listening, saying us to do it, judging us. So we will keep doing it. Some say our methods are unsound. We say we don’t have a method at all, sirs. So again we say: PLAY IT LOUD!
