SATAN'S SATYRS - Wild Beyond Belief | CD

€8.00

Combining the super-fuzz garage sensibilities of Davie Allen And The Arrows and the catchy riffing and keen sense of songwriting of the "new" Electric Wizard, Satan's Satyrs have injected a youth breath of fresh air into the oft staid confines of the crypt of underground metal this past year or so through a series of ultra-limited singles and EPs. Wild Beyond Belief! is the first full-length and delivers on the promise of those early demos and then some.

I got chatting with Clay of SS a wee while back over a mutual love of late 60s biker movies, and they really form the basis of this record; from the artwork and the lyrics ("Ride Devils, ride, ride Sadist 69!") to the lo-fi recording sounding like it could've come straight from a greasy backstreet Grindhouse showing Hell's Angels On Wheels. There are no boring "drone" elements here, there's no chin-stroking/beards anywhere in sight, and the exploitation schlock element has a firm basis rather than some clown who watched Susperia cos Electric Wizard said they liked it and Googled "occult flares lol" in search of an album cover. It's just TUNES and ATTITUDE. Right on!
