Satan’s Satyrs – Wild Beyond Belief
BLACK VINYL $22
Compact Disc $10
From Herndon, Virginia, something wicked this way comes. Raised on riffs and cult VHS flicks, Satan’s Satyrs combine the super-fuzz garage sensibilities of Detroit in ’65 and the heaviness of contemporary doom, and through a series of ultra-limited singles and EPs have become one of the most talked up underground bands of recent years and now; following limited pressings on vinyl LP, Cassette & Compact Disc, their 2012 debut album ‘Wild Beyond Belief!’, a ripping deluge of blasphemous scuzz-rock workouts, will see it’s first commercial UK / European release via the Bad Omen Records label this autumn.
Merging the riffing, the tone, the fuzz, and the cult-horror worship of the ultra-doom underground with the unbridled energy, lo-fi production, and fuck-you attitude of garage punk seems like such a natural fit that it’s impossible to believe that Satan’s Satyrs are the first band to accomplish it, but on ‘Wild Beyond Belief!’ the band have pulled it off almost flawlessly and deliver a refreshing blast of youthful energy in the staid wasteland of modern heavy metal.
