Episode 43 – Bad Guys Special

Episode 43 – Bad Guy Special (right click to download)

Hello friends! Nice of you to join us. How ya feelin’?

Allright, the time has come to shake things up a bit. We’ve brought some company for today’s episode: Bad Guys. Not just any bad guys. The Bad Guys, from London, England. They will pay us a visit real soon. Like, next month soon. November 20th. This little page will tell you all about it.

Now, we may be bastards, but we are a grateful bunch of bastards. Ask and you shall receive, they said. Thus this episode came to be.

Bad Guys sent us 4 tracks (one for each bad dude) from bands that influenced their sound in one way or another. They also sent us some commentary. It’s all audio and integrated on the episode. You’ve heard of radio? It’s like that, only cooler cause we can do whatever the fuck we want. And we did.

So besides having these modern day warriors choose some songs, we got some tracks of our own in there. Shit got wild. Wild west wild. Fuckin town sheriff would run for his dear ol’life if such a podcast would come charging in.

Wait, what’s that in the distance?

Hide the children. This ain’t a Halloween Special. It’s a Bad Guys Special. Fuck you!

SATAN MADE ME DO IT’s upcoming live event in MusicBox, Lisbon, with our guests Bad Guys, is quickly approaching. We’re fucking psyched. It has all the ingredients that a killer show needs. Take the official poster for instance: is that punk or is that punk? What, is pink and baby blue too much for you to handle? That’s the beautiful part. RUDOLFO took those colors and turned them on their heads to make all the assholes runaway. True fans will get it of course. And those are the ones we care about.

November 20th, MusicBox
Concert + DJ set: 8 euros

Episode 36 – Lay Down Your Arms

Episode 36 – Lay Down Your Arms (right click to download)

It’s funny, you know? There are plenty of non-metal people who admit listening to metal music. Now that’s just fine; such barriers have long been broken. We have written about this before. What’s interesting is not that these people listen to metal; it’s the metal they usually listen to. If you know a thing or two about music you’ll be very quick in confessing your love for the likes of Slayer, Napalm Death or Burzum. These three bands have some things in common: they all inspired genres other than metal and are generally archived under the “extreme metal” category.

Now ask those same people if they enjoy NWOBHM, Speed, Power, Glam – in general, the more traditional and “domesticated” metal genres – and see what happens (Maiden and Priest don’t count!). Even among head bangers it’s not infrequent to find people who have no love for these sounds.

If this episode doesn’t make you change your mind then you’ll continue leading a sad, sad existence. And we’ll show you no compassion. Good music has no boundaries.

NO DAWN IN LUCIFER’S LIGHT!

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.

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.

Episode 3 – Vintage Addiction

Episode 3 – Vintage Addiction (right click to download)

Let’s just get the obvious stuff out of the way: unless you haven’t been paying much attention everything “psych” is all the rage nowadays. There’s nothing wrong with that, but as usual these things tend to blow out of proportion easily. That’s why we were a bit skeptic about actually releasing this third Satan Made Me Do It episode. Just understand that we are NOT trying to capitalize on the psychedelic revival. Our sole intention is to offer you a journey through the proto-metal tunes of old and, hopefully, get you some perspective about where metal came from. 60s and 70s tunes for the most part, of course. We tried to exclude the more obvious stuff to keep things as fresh as possible for you guys and gals out there. So no Coven, Black Widow, Lucifer’s Friend and so on.

As always, PLAY IT LOUD! and have a great time. We’ll be back two weeks from now, Satan willing.
