Episode 43 – Bad Guys Special

Hello friends! Nice of you to join us. How ya feelin’?

Allright, the time has come to shake things up a bit. We’ve brought some company for today’s episode: Bad Guys. Not just any bad guys. The Bad Guys, from London, England. They will pay us a visit real soon. Like, next month soon. November 20th. This little page will tell you all about it.

Now, we may be bastards, but we are a grateful bunch of bastards. Ask and you shall receive, they said. Thus this episode came to be.

Bad Guys sent us 4 tracks (one for each bad dude) from bands that influenced their sound in one way or another. They also sent us some commentary. It’s all audio and integrated on the episode. You’ve heard of radio? It’s like that, only cooler cause we can do whatever the fuck we want. And we did.

So besides having these modern day warriors choose some songs, we got some tracks of our own in there. Shit got wild. Wild west wild. Fuckin town sheriff would run for his dear ol’life if such a podcast would come charging in.

Wait, what’s that in the distance?

Hide the children. This ain’t a Halloween Special. It’s a Bad Guys Special. Fuck you!

Episode 15 – The Dead All Have The Same Skin

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!

Episode 3 – Vintage Addiction

Episode 3 – Vintage Addiction (right click to download)

Let’s just get the obvious stuff out of the way: unless you haven’t been paying much attention everything “psych” is all the rage nowadays. There’s nothing wrong with that, but as usual these things tend to blow out of proportion easily. That’s why we were a bit skeptic about actually releasing this third Satan Made Me Do It episode. Just understand that we are NOT trying to capitalize on the psychedelic revival. Our sole intention is to offer you a journey through the proto-metal tunes of old and, hopefully, get you some perspective about where metal came from. 60s and 70s tunes for the most part, of course. We tried to exclude the more obvious stuff to keep things as fresh as possible for you guys and gals out there. So no Coven, Black Widow, Lucifer’s Friend and so on.

As always, PLAY IT LOUD! and have a great time. We’ll be back two weeks from now, Satan willing.
