Rádio Quântica – Satan Made Me Do It #18 [+tracklist]

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.

Episode 33 – Great Demon God

Episode 33 – Great Demon God (right click to download)

There are a lot of special things about vinyl (and cassettes!). One of the most exceptional ones was (is?) the fact that it very usually influenced how the albums were actually put together. Burzum is one of the metal bands that, to our knowledge, put the format to better use in the early 90s, resorting frequently to electronic pieces inspired by Klaus Schulze and the like to play around with the listener’s expectations. How the first side ended and the second began was actually a factor carefully considered by many acts. That effect is, of course, lost with CDs and digital music.

This episode too feels like it has two sides. The first half of the episode is fundamentally different from the second one and yet there are many similarities that can be established. The most prevalent one is that every track chosen was written and performed by bands from Japan.

The title “Great Demon God” and episode picture both reference the Japanese kaijū Daimajin.
