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 show right here we’ll teach you to spit fire and that’s a mighty good ice breaker (ha!).
We had it all: Texan Blues, Satanic Hymns, THRASH and even a world exclusive. Satan sure doesn’t fuck around. Unless he feels like it of course. It’s a free country.
One half of SATAN MADE ME DO IT has his own project. It’s called HOOFMARK and it’s deeply rooted on the lo-fi, simple and yet exaggerated aesthetics of 84-87 hardcore infused underground metal, as well as on the often poignant narratives of traditional country music (yes!).
And guess what: this show saw SATAN MADE ME DO IT play HOOFMARK for the very first time EVER. It was very emotional.
Ocean waves may scare you, crashing wildly and loudly into the shore, making you lose your balance, pounding you uncontrollably into the sandy bottom. But as powerful as the roaring waves are, you know that the greatest danger, the scariest violence, the hungriest of deaths, lays down deep below the surface. There’s a sense of menace when you look at the vastness of the deep-sea; it’s what you don’t know, what you can’t predict and control that terrifies the most.
Such is life. There’s nothing more frightening that what lies under the surface, in the abyss, masquerading as the ordinary, lying there under the ripples of everyday life and everyday people. Remember this when listening this week’s episode. And trust us, it’s gonna be much easier on you if you just PLAY IT LOUD!
