Episode 41 – Family Happiness

For quite some time now we haven’t released a really mean episode through and through. Maybe it has to do with the summer. The increasing daylight hours made us weak, perhaps. We’re ending it NOW. This episode will make afraid of your own shadow from start to finish. It’s so thick that Leatherface’s chainsaw wouldn’t be able to cut it through. It’s so loud you’ll want to listen to Delibes afterwards. This is where we separate the men from the boys and send away all the poseurs who THINK they like SATAN MADE ME DO IT. No more happy thoughts, no more warmth inside, no more singing along or wandering about. This one comes from our cold, dead hands.

Episode 38 – Strength Is Nothing

We know we’ve just done it recently (see Episode 34 – Cross My Heart and Hope to Die), but we’re going for a slower tempo on this one. We just felt the need to, especially after three crazy days spinning records at VAGOS OPEN AIR festival. Hard as nails, those guys. They didn’t care at all for slower tracks or even faster NWOBHM songs. Those critters wanted to be fed on a strictly brutal diet consisting of thrash, death, black metal with just a dash of hardcore on top. Ahah, it was great fun and definitely we want to go back.

But hey, some people mistake speed for aggression and noise for violence. Not true. Music can be pretty vile and grim and dark and heavy when it’s cold, slow or distant too. It’s almost like the old argument: what are scarier, slow zombies, or fast zombies? Meh…

So press play and PLAY IT LOUD. And beware; it can get pretty emotional.

Episode 35 – Kingdom of Darkness

If Sauron had won this would be his go-to soundtrack. We can already picture the orcs dancing and subsequently bashing each other in the head to the sound of this fine selection of tunes. See, we don’t believe Middle Earth would be much into folk if the armies of Mordor won the war. We think a careful mixture of thrash, death and black would be much more successful.

Of course, if Sauron did win we would all be dead, or worse. But that’s another story.

We’re dedicating this one to the memory of Christopher Lee.

The world is divided between those who swallow their chocolate and those who let it melt in their mouth, slowly exploring with their tongues, the French-kiss way, all the flavors – and the pleasure-inducing and stimulating chemical compounds – contained within it. If you’re gonna enjoy this episode, you better be one the latter. Because this is the slower and darker episode we have ever released. It’s not milk chocolate, by the way. It’s 90% cocoa dark chocolate, with exotic spices on top, the kind of chocolate that throw your dopamine levels into orbit. Except this one is kind of gloomy.

It’s our shortest episode so far, while it has the longest tracks. It’s vile and it’s heart-in-your-hands sad. Lot of complex emotions going on here. So find your little private space, earplugs in, and taste it. Slowly, slowly.

Episode 28 – Eyes Without A Face

“Beauty, like supreme dominion Is but supported by opinion”.

Ben Franklin was right. Take SATAN MADE ME DO IT: a celebration of the beauty of ugliness. Most people look away in disgust. They sure as hell cover their ears in pain. Not us. “Ugliness is the measure of imperfection”, said HG Wells. Well, we embrace it. We love it. Most of all, we cherish the imperfections. So, is SATAN MADE ME DO IT so far apart from, say, Christianity? The Cross is surely not “beautiful” and Christ was surely not “perfect”.

We said it before: SATAN MADE ME DO IT is a lot like life. Sometimes you have your way, other times you get kicked in the genitals with the strength of a thousand hooves before you can even say “UGH!”. Life is not perfect, life is not conventional and life is ugly. So if you’re into life there’s something right here for you. LIVE IT LOUD! Click for show notes and a complete tracklist.

Episode 26 – Carnivorous Flowers

Our ears are still buzzing from two weeks ago. That’s noise for you. But we decided NOT to take the feet off the pedal. We just basically changed the guitar tone to something a little extra… fuzzy. There are actually a lot of things at play here, more prominently doom stuff, so you’ll find plenty to like if you been going to just some of the many psych fests being unleashed throughout the civilized world. So, not the Pagan Altar/Witchfinder General type of doom. This time we mingled with the slow pace, the thorny and the poisonous.

One other thing: it’s mostly newish stuff, meaning there is a good chance you’ll get in touch with fresh and exciting music to sink your teeth into.

Music never disappoints! Support SATAN MADE ME DO IT and come back for more exactly two weeks from now.

We can’t stand for painless, tamed, sugary or trouble-free music for much too long, so here we are, back with a stronger drive than ever – just as promised. This one is mostly Death and Black and will sound like a rusty metal amalgam crushing on a thick flesh wall. DEATH IS FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF SOUND! Only counts if your ears bleed!

We will back on Friday the 13th, no less! SUPPORT SATAN MADE ME DO IT: SPREAD THE DISEASE!
