This is one proud, barbaric, dangerous dude of an episode. REALLY GOOD stuff.  Black/thrash nuggets from nine different countries. Some new stuff, some demo stuff, some obscure stuff from good times gone by. AND we have all the adjectives you would expect from such a show: perverted, thick, sick, impenetrable, vicious, revolting, cool, fresh, harsh, commendable, extraordinaire, sinister and, above all, relentless. So get in, get on, get off and listen like your life depended on it.

Episode 44 – Black Vomit

That’s FIVE weeks since our last episode! That’s a first. So far, in almost two years doing SATAN MADE ME DO IT, we’ve skipped one week just once, on New Year’s Eve. We’ve been quite busy, though. First with our first SATAN MADE ME DO IT curated gig at Music Box with the supremely cool BAD GUYS. We can’t lie to you: it’s true; we’ve felt some kind of “post-event blues”. We just wanted to jump on stage and do it again. Then reality crashed in. Work to do, 9-to-5 jobs. A mess.

So, yeah, we’re late and we apologize for not providing you your biweekly dose of sonic prozac (WordPress tell us that Monday morning is your favorite time to pay us a visit, so we guess it’s a privilege to be your first source of energizing for the working week).

But guess what? We come with a vengeance. This episode is out there in terms of sheer aggression, speed and raw power. And we’re featuring a lot of fresh, 2015 stuff. So let’s just lock horns and be pals again. PLAY IT LOUD!

Episode 42 – Legion of Horribles

Episode 42 – Legion of Horribles (right click to download)

The cruelest acts can rarely be put into words. They must be left to the realms of imagination. That’s where fear comes from too. No physical manifestation of horror can ever and will ever top our ability to create empires of the gruesome. Those who say fact trumps fiction, i.e. imagination, have never really tried hard enough. After all, the kingdoms of metaphysics are far less restrictive.

Today’s episode is an attempt to spark your creativity. We made it like a drug. To hook you is the entire point. And once you’re addicted there’s no escaping it. No morals to resort to, no time to go back, no place to hide. Your mind becomes your hell; your ideas, Satan himself.

Make the best of them.

Episode 41 – Family Happiness

Episode 41 – Familly Happiness (right click to download)

For quite some time now we haven’t released a really mean episode through and through. Maybe it has to do with the summer. The increasing daylight hours made us weak, perhaps. We’re ending it NOW. This episode will make afraid of your own shadow from start to finish. It’s so thick that Leatherface’s chainsaw wouldn’t be able to cut it through. It’s so loud you’ll want to listen to Delibes afterwards. This is where we separate the men from the boys and send away all the poseurs who THINK they like SATAN MADE ME DO IT. No more happy thoughts, no more warmth inside, no more singing along or wandering about. This one comes from our cold, dead hands.

Episode 35 – Kingdom of Darkness

Episode 35 – Kingdom of Darkness (right click to download)

If Sauron had won this would be his go-to soundtrack. We can already picture the orcs dancing and subsequently bashing each other in the head to the sound of this fine selection of tunes. See, we don’t believe Middle Earth would be much into folk if the armies of Mordor won the war. We think a careful mixture of thrash, death and black would be much more successful.

Of course, if Sauron did win we would all be dead, or worse. But that’s another story.

We’re dedicating this one to the memory of Christopher Lee.

Episode 31 – Little Albert Experiment

Episode 31 – Little Albert Experiment (right click to download)

This one will really mess up your mind.

We don’t know what it is. Maybe the weather, ‘cause when the seasons change we tend to go all nuts and freestyle and shit. Last episode we caught you off-guard with some freak stuff, and now the unpredictability factor is still way high.

So don’t freak out. We start with some noise, pretty heavy stuff, we land a couple of metal punk punches on your face, and then it’s all game – there’s even some goth for our more anemic listeners. We’ll twist and turn and shake you up. But don’t worry. It’s all good and you’ll end up liking it. Maybe even ask for more. Ahah, puppets on a string, all of you.

So now you know: keep an open mind, just like little Albert. So we can fuck it up even more.

NO FRICTION means NO PLEASURE, NO BABIES!

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 28 – Eyes Without A Face

Episode 28 – Eyes Without A Face (right click to download)

“Beauty, like supreme dominion Is but supported by opinion”.

Ben Franklin was right. Take SATAN MADE ME DO IT: a celebration of the beauty of ugliness. Most people look away in disgust. They sure as hell cover their ears in pain. Not us. “Ugliness is the measure of imperfection”, said HG Wells. Well, we embrace it. We love it. Most of all, we cherish the imperfections. So, is SATAN MADE ME DO IT so far apart from, say, Christianity? The Cross is surely not “beautiful” and Christ was surely not “perfect”.

We said it before: SATAN MADE ME DO IT is a lot like life. Sometimes you have your way, other times you get kicked in the genitals with the strength of a thousand hooves before you can even say “UGH!”. Life is not perfect, life is not conventional and life is ugly. So if you’re into life there’s something right here for you. LIVE IT LOUD! Click for show notes and a complete tracklist.

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!
