Episode 29 – Übertragic Deathvastation

Episode 29 – Übertragic Deathvastation (right click to download)

What a weird, weird episode.

It is, excuse us, a damn fine one. But still. And it all starts with the title. Have we ever been more over the top? Doubtfully – and we were the ones coming up with an episode called “Horror Maximus”! But say it out loud: Übertragic Deathvastation. Ahhhh it just rolls off the tongue in glorious blasphemic anger (another great title now that we think of it). So what’s this about anyway? Hell, we don’t know. Those first 7 minutes are GRIM. Then it gets brutal, black&rockin, finally becoming… goofy. Does this make ANY sense? No, and that’s why it has to work.

Loud or go away.

Episode 27 – Unsound Methods

Episode 27 – Unsound Methods (right click to download)

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!

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!

Episode 18 – Tales Of The Macabre

Episode 18 – Tales Of The Macabre (right click to download)

We’ve never done a thrash heavy SATAN MADE ME DO IT episode, believe it or not. It’s fucking crazy now that we think about it, since it’s well documented how thrash is metal’s core genre. Sure, there’s plenty of it in most of our episodes, but looking back at it we still feel we lack a more thrash oriented 45 minute tracklist. That has to do with the fact that we like to keep things freestyle, but also with our special knack for black and death flavors.

An amateur’s mistake, we’re afraid to say, but one we promptly fix with this TALES OF THE MACABRE episode (a reference to the Slaughter track of course). STILL! This is us. There’s some other stuff thrown in there for good measure. Some death, some heavy. It’s all good fun.

We tried to be as less obvious as possible while still throwing a bone or four your way just so it’s not all name dropping.

Your duty, as always, is to PLAY IT LOUD! The rest will naturally fall into place. SHOW NO MERCY!

Episode 17 – The Moon Shone With a Fuller Red

Episode 17 – The Moon Shone With a Fuller Red (right click to download)

Last time we dug graves deep in bottom of the ocean. This time we whisper our sorcery to invoke the reddest of moons. The bloodiest one we can possibly conjure. The kind of moon that rouses that which should not be. For while there’s a devastating beauty in losing yourself in thoughts and feelings under such a celestial body, do not be fooled: there’s nothing blue about this moon.

Fall to your knees and PLAY IT LOUD! Possession is at hand!

Episode 16 – Graves in the Water

Episode 16 – Graves in the Water (right click to download)

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!

Episode 15 – The Dead All Have The Same Skin

Episode 15 – The Dead All Have The Same Skin (right click to download)

This will sound like nothing you have ever listened to on a SATAN MADE ME DO IT episode. Basically at some point, after starting to develop an interest in country music, we noticed that country and metal approaches shared some similarities. After we came to listen to some of the stuff Hank Williams 3 was doing, crossing over country with metal and hardcore punk (he’s the self crowned “King of Hellbilly”), we felt curious and decided to find out if more interesting stuff was being done on this field. Well, to make a long story short, there is not a lot of stuff being done. Mainly, there is not a lot of GOOD stuff being done. Either because they’re gimmicky, not very talented or just because, beyond the Southern Rock that’s already been there for decades, the Christian fundamentalism of America’s Bible Belt could never really get in bed with the soundtrack to Hell, but that’s the truth.

We decided to go through with this anyway, and actually we like the result. This is not strictly “country”. Expect to find anything that sounds a bit western, a bit outlaw, a bit redneck and very… white. Expect also to find a lot of stand-alone side-projects and a lot of references to Hank Williams 3 (son of country legends Hank Williams Sr. and Hank Williams Jr. and a country star himself, albeit an unconventional one). As for SATAN MADE ME DO IT, we will consider this episode as some sort of a side-project too. So don’t worry: on October 3rd we’ll be back with more GRUESOME METAL!

Anyway…

PLAY IT LOUD!
