SATAN MADE ME DO IT is officially part of the GIMME RADIO family (check us out at https://gimmeradio.com/#/djs/121) but it always feel good to do these “independent shows” every once and a while. WE CRAVE THE ATTENTION! And we get to be even crazier, both with the music and with the mixer controls. You’ll see what we mean when you listen to this: lots of leftfield madness on top of the extreme metal you all know and love. We feel pretty good about this show!
We have done it all and then some. It has been years, damn it! So for this month’s show we reminisce about old times the only way we know… WITH A VENGEANCE !! All the while, trying and successfully sabotaging the other’s selection. Make no mistake: you will have fun, friends. We are just concerned about ourselves here. Help?
We are now balls deep in our second anniversary of Radio Quântica shows. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to US!! From this high up we gotta say: it’s one wondrous sight to behold. Also, we basically just came from a live set in Portugal’s most prestigious nightclub for music discovery, Lux Frágil. Some people stuck with us ‘till the very end, bless them, even as we obliterated both hell and high water with the likes of Demdike Stare, fuckin’ SLAUGHTER and Leviathan.
Things started as rocky as a mountain on this show thanks be to all things digital catching us by surprise, but it didn’t take much for a COMEBACK FOR THE AGES. Again, think Rocky.
ANGEL WITCH aplenty, goth (to live is to die, damn it!), BLACK METAL from heck, great covers and love letters, hentai (What? No.), METAL MANS and a general disinterest for all things gentle. HARSH SATANIC REALITIES UNEARTHED!!
You might as well go straight to the second hour. What our guest for this show accomplishes is nothing short of amazing: a black/death metal DJ set. An actual live extreme metal DJ set fresh and invigorating in a way we haven’t listened before.
This is what SATAN MADE ME DO IT is all about. We invited this confrontational visual artist from the Azores, MÁRCIO MATOS, mostly known in the Portuguese underground clubbing for being a founder and visual image creator for Príncipe Discos, hands down the most vital and refreshing dance music label in the country; and the guy behind the counter at Flur, this influential record shop in Lisbon. He’s also heading his own experimental music label, Noisendo (for which he keeps trying to hire black metal acts) and is a revered DJ playing at the clubs that matter.
What people don’t know is that, while coming from electronics and dance music, Márcio Matos is a profound adept of all things black and death metal. The rawest and most aggressive the better. That fucking shows, because he brings his taste and DJ skills and create this mind-blowing hour of screwed up music.
This all makes it even more sorrowful and frankly pitiful that the vast majority of metalheads can’t appreciate listening to metal outside of concerts (we’ll give you that, nothing beats a metal live show) or radio and dj playlists. They can’t get around their heads that maybe listening to a DJ playing metal just to find out about new stuff or listening to the same stuff in a different way is actually a good thing. Well, mates, we can’t help you except by keep doing this.
Stress just doesn’t get to us. This show happened mere days before our dj set at Santa Maria Summer Fest, in Beja, but we came prepared to deliver to goods on both fronts. On this episode, hour UNO kicked so much ass that it interfered with the very cables on the studio in Radio Quântica. Great new Mefisto track, Power Trip, Arkona, Cruel Force, just *UGH!*
It got so maddening there for a second that the damn equipment started frying our selection by the end of hour two… Sorry about that!
Metal will be the end of us and till the end we’ll proclaim: ‘tis but a scratch!
HERE IT IS. It finally happened. This one took some time to get uploaded. Sorry for that.
First show of 2017, recorded at the Rádio Quântica studios in Lisbon. No guests, just us doing and talking shit. Pretty much very freestyle this one. We looked back not in anger, but in love and awe with some of the tracks we played and prized the most in 2016 and played them AGAIN. But there’s also a bunch of new fresh stuff you’ll be mad not to listen to.
We start the show in a shadowy, menacing but overall enjoyable tone, go full party mode right after, and somewhere along the way end up in a really dark, slow, depressing place only to get back again on our feet and just run free. Tears of sadness, tears of anger, tears of joy. Wild mood swings. Pretty epic stuff. Enjoy!
