King Satan – Satanized (Praise Hail Satan): A Video Breakdown
King Devil Dog would’ve been a better name choice.
Do you need some satanic industrial techno music in your life? No. No, of course you don’t. You’re not a pill-snorting devil-worshiping neon-loving fiend that wears fuzzy boots and and dances inappropriately at funerals. Or maybe you are, I can’t read your mind. If that’s the case, then you are definitely going to like Finland’s King Satan.
On their Facebook page, King Satan list their Band Interests as “SEX, MAGICK & ROCK’N’ROLL” and Personal Interests as “CHAOS MAGICK AND SPIRITUAL ANARCHY”. The ALL CAPS is their emphasis, not mine. I… you know what? I’ll just let their bio speak for itself:
KING SATAN is industrial metal project founded by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist ALEISTER SATAN (a.k.a. fra. Zetekh) at Tampere, Finland in 2015. KING SATAN combines in its electro-industrial music the elements of extreme metal (such as black and death metal) and dark electro (EBM, aggrotech, trance…) which all together marks completely defiance not only towards the conventions and boundaries of the mentioned genres, but also towards the status quo of spiritual life and mental status of modern world. Fuck the rest, Satan is best.
KING SATAN released its first single titled ”Enter Black Fire” in December 2015 which was followed by a demo EP ”We Are King Satan And We Fuck The World” first in digital form and in January 2016 as a CD edition which was sold out very fast during the becoming weeks due to widespread attention not only in native Finland but also aboard. Second single ”Psygnosis” was released in May 2016 together with new music video which was alike ”Enter Black Fire” directed by ALEISTER SATAN himself.
Due to the success of the first singles KING SATAN started playing live in autumn 2016 with great results as gaining a reputation of very powerful, energetic and controversial live band where the worlds of extreme metal and dark electro truly entwines into a very unique and explosive combination of extreme musick. First shows took place in SAARIHELVETTI festivals 2016 at Tampere, Finland and GOTHIC FEST SOFIA Festivals at Sofia, Bulgaria together with couple of single gigs of which all while sharing the stage with such names as PAIN, SHIV-R, SHINING, TURMION KÄTILÖT, HORNA.
KING SATAN’s debut album was recorded during 2016 and is being prepared to be released during 2017 via SATURNAL RECORDS. So debut album on the way and more gigs to come, the saga of KING SATAN has not yet even began!
