It hasn’t been easy lately. Two whole months have gone by since our last apparition. We’re like a cheap bottle of red wine left open and slowly going bad. Motherfucker.
It’s ok, it’s ok. Things are looking better now. And although you have to wait a bit more for our next two-hour-long Radio Quântica episode, we’re making sure you have some company for the coming weeks. It’s not exactly the friendliest bed in town, but maybe you’ll like it.
2016 is coming to an end and stuff is getting more busted by the minute. Before we all rust in pieces here’s what is already one of our personal favorite Satan Made Me Do It shows ever, with guest appearance from legendary DECAYED no less. They got a new album a whole lotta stories to share. Make J.A., and Vulturius feel welcome. They sure made us feel like a million bucks.
Second SATAN MADE ME DO IT show for Rádio Quântica, filled to the brim with atmospheric, psychedelic and introspective black metal. But don’t worry: there’s also lots of death metal, old and new, to kick you in the teeth, and a dash of good ol’NWOBHM, just to help you keep going. no gods, no masters!— http://www.radioquantica.com/ —
We got inspiration for this episode after reading a great Greg Anderson (from Southern Lord) interview about his hardcore roots in Seattle. Initially we thought about repeating a hardcore drenched episode, just like we did on “Episode 25 – Nothing Ever Changes”, but as Greg’s interview was about how different the Seattle scene was compared to the rest of the West Coast, soon our thoughts drifted to the roots of crossover thrash, particularly the LA of the early 80s. Back then, the punks and skaters didn’t see eye to eye with metalheads, but bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Cryptic Slaughter, Excel or DRI helped change that. Soon, you started seeing punks and skaters turning up at Slayer and Metallica shows, while metal bands started to play faster and harder. So basically this episode is part early crossover thrash and part modern crossover outfits, mostly released (or re-released!) by Southern.
