Episode 25 – Nothing Ever Changes

Punk and metal didn’t really saw eye to eye back in the day. Promiscuity is rarely the norm among subcultures in the beginning. Motörhead’s “Overkill” is essential if one desires to understand where Britain’s hardcore sound comes from, and NWOBHM in general owns a lot to punk, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that one group mingled a lot with the other. It says little about how scenes came and went and who belonged where.

Then came bands like Hellhammer with their primitive lo-fi black & roll/metal punk (which, truth be told, a lot of metal people hated in the 80s) and Amebix, who united the bridge separating metal and punk. Things are not this linear (they rarely are), but hopefully you get the picture.

Nowadays punks, metalheads, crusties, hard rockers, ravers and the bunch all socialize with one another. And that’s a good thing. As a result there are underground hardcore punks playing lead guitar solos more commonly associated with psychedelic (downright hippie!) rock, and headbangers with a knack for the electronic. It’s a brave new world.

This episode is once again for all you open-minded metal people. Enjoy the noise.

Episode 19 – Metal On Metal

Episode 19 – Metal On Metal (right click to download)

There’s basically no Metal on this episode.

There, we said it. There’s even a little clubbing thing going around. EBM stuff. Noise rock. Yeah, we can almost hear you: these guys are selling out! What about the “no plastic, no triggers” statement stuff? Yeah, we’re selling out. We don’t have anything to sell, or anyone to sell it to, but nevertheless we’re selling it. Because this is the way of the new world we’re living in, and selling out is the new keeping it real. And you will buy it.

You may be shocked. And you should be. Because this little baby is a real monster. The way we did it was simple. We were flying to Madrid, listening to “Metal on Metal”. Not the Anvil song. The one by Kraftwerk. Boring flight, nothing to do… And we wondered: what would happen if we started the next episode with this great song?

That’s how this is gonna roll. Kraftwerk will start playing within your ears. It will sound strange and perverted. And then something fucked up and evil will happen. And then… you’re just going to have to listen to it, won’t you? We can just promise you: in the end, everything will make sense, and you will just hit replay.

SELL IT LOUD!

Episode 1 – Satan Made Me Do It

Episode 1 – Satan Made Me Do It (right click to download)

The first Satan Made Me Do It podcast is, in many ways, a statement; a declaration of war, if you will, and we’re taking no prisoners. Why should you care? Well, that depends on which side you’re on. You definitely won’t find much sympathy here if you care about any kind of nu-metal outfit, triggered drums, kiddie black metal, modern pop-ish sound and whatnot. We are, after all, very picky about how metal should sound. And fortunately we are not alone. The bands featured on this show prove exactly that.

Lend us your brains for the next 45 minutes. It will do wonders for your disposition. It will certainly help you coping with a shitty 9-to-5 job or dull commuting journeys. And, who knows, you might even find your new favorite band in the process. Sounds good? Yeah? Well, wait ‘till you fucking hear it!

No genre restrictions on this one. We go through thrash, black, death, crust, metal-punk… We like to keep it freestyle at any rate, but can’t promise we’ll always have such “varied” shows. Also, if you like a song, support the band by every means necessary. Buy their stuff, like them on Facebook, follow them on BandCamp and spread the message! Hell is all but lost if the bands making it happen are broke.

PLAY IT LOUD! Satan Made Me Do It highly recommends every listener to enjoy the show with a pair of decent headphones. High volume levels are equally advisable. *ANTI-WHITE EARBUDS BRIGADE*

We’ll be back every other Tuesday from now on. Tell your friends.
