Finnish Industrial Metal/EBM Group KING SATAN have released the official video for new single “Psygnosis.” The video was directed, written and produced by the band’s mastermind/vocalist Aleister Von Satan himself. Check it out at or below:

The single will be included on the band’s upcoming debut album, which will be released later in 2016 on Saturnal Records.

KING SATAN is an industrial metal / EBM band from Tampere, Finland, founded in 2015 by Aleister Von Satan (a.k.a. fra. Zetekh, also mastermind of occult Black Metal band Saturnian Mist). KING SATAN combines influences from a wide range of Extreme Metal, Electro-Industrial and even Hard Rock. Musically, the band is about complete defiance – not only towards the boundaries and conventions of Metal and Electro Music but also the status quo of spiritual life and mental status of modern world. Nothing is sacred and no stone shall be left unturned.

KING SATAN‘s first promo titled We are King Satan and we Fuck the World (2015) was recorded in autumn 2015 and released in December 2015 together with a music video single from the demo titled Enter Black Fire (2015). The video was directed by ALEISTER VON SATAN himself. The CD edition of the demo sold out fast and KING SATAN were going through a period of finding an established line-up for the sake of performing live, which meant that  a lot of people came and went before the line-up was settled. DJ SHEMHAMFORASH (a.k.a. fra. Ptahaz, also known from Saturnian Mist) was already in the band during the time of the first demo and handled guitars, synths and DJ responsibilities live, while B.B. KILL found himself as a guitarist and KATE BOSS as a bassist and a dancer.

Due to the success of the demo KING SATAN started working almost immediately on the debut full-length album in March 2016 and the first live shows were confirmed quickly. The first live appearance will take place August 2016 at the SAARIHELVETTI FESTIVAL, Tampere, Finland, where the band will share the stage with such names as Turmion Kätilöt and Shining, while the second show will take a place at the extravagant GOTHIC FEST in SOFIA at Sofia, Bulgaria on October 29, 2016.

Adds vocalist Burton C. Bell, “I am looking forward to the upcoming tour where FEAR FACTORY will be performing Demanufacture in full for the first time since we released it in 1995.

FEAR OF DOMINATION – Unleashes A New Wicked Album

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on January 21, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

FEAR OF DOMINATION - Atlas - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MO33ILMFDSP8CIL

The fourth studio album of Fear of Domination is titled Atlas and it will be released on March 11. It is the darkest and heaviest masterpiece FoD has ever done.

The Finnish shock Industrial Metal band Fear of Domination will give a totally new definition to “spring break” by unleashing its fourth studio album Atlas,on March 11. The vocalist and the lyricist of the band Saku Solin describes Atlas as the darkest and the heaviest album the band has ever done.

Solin describes, that Atlas is about the moment, when all the light in the world has faded, and a human being is left to wander with his crushing burden.

“The question is, is the burden self-created, imagined or concrete. We’ve all had a bit of an emotion-filled year. I think we have efficiently packed primitive rage, desperation and misery here. It wasn’t a conscious decision. This is how we felt, and fuck, we did what had to be done.”

The string instruments are crunching lower than before and the composer and keyboardist of the band Lasse Raelahti has created a harmony of chaos and beauty with his synthesizer. Fans were given the first taste of blood, when the band released the music video single El Toro in the autumn.


The lyrics of the album are also more straight and brutal than before.The vocal producer Helena Haaparanta whipped everything out of the singer. Solin reveals from the album, that the rasp and growl vocals can change quickly to “freakishly annoyingly poppish” singing.

“We have always loved to create some contrast. Even though the lyrics are about the collapse of the mind and the world, suddenly there can be an opera-kind-of part or then it could be from E-Types disco song.”

The drums and the basses were recorded in D-studio, the guitars in the apartment of the lead guitarist and composer Johannes Niemi and the vocals in another studio in city of Kerava. The producers Alex Azzali and Nicholas Barker mixed and mastered the album in Italy. The cover art is created by Timo Kokko.

Fear of Domination is ready for the live-shows of the spring and is more insane than ever. The band is famous for their theatrical and half-crazy shows filled with energy. The year 2016 started with sold out MeriRock in January and will continue with three-day tour of MetalOrgy.

”We are looking forward to the gigs! We are able to use some new ideas and of course, to play the new songs. There are a couple of new ones, that I am sure will rock the hell out of the crowd”, Solin smiles.

Fear of Domination was found in 2006. The third album Distorted Delusions was published in 2014.

AUTHOR & PUNISHER – Live Rituals To Commence Next Week In Tulsa, OK

Posted in drone metal, industrial metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on July 25, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Author & Punisher - promo pic - 2013 - #1

In just one week, AUTHOR & PUNISHER – one Tristan Shone – will embark upon a 19-date North American trek supporting Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. Fittingly dubbed the Technicians Of Distortion Tour, the long-anticipated journey will commence July 31st in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Additional support will be provided by WARBEAST.

Comments Shone of the upcoming adventure: “I knew I had to step it up when Phil asked me to join this tour…the result is my most ambitious live undertaking. I have worked myself to a bloody pulp soldering, rewiring, building, to make things stronger, louder and more devastating.  I also am bringing a small team along with me as well to help with live video streaming, cameras etc.  This will for sure be a raucous affair not to be missed….”

AUTHOR & PUNISHER mercilessly manipulate the principal conventions of doom, industrial and heavy bass music relying on cold steel and soulless machinery to sonically replicate the despondency of life. Described most succinctly as “industrial doom,” this one-man project utilizes primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers, devices that draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics and focus upon the eroticism of interaction with machine. Through his maniacal audio decomposition, Shone paints an often disturbing soundtrack of a world gone rotten.

“…heavy and disturbing like a nightmare you suddenly wake from but aren’t quite sure you fully escaped…” – Metal Injection

“Shone’s apocalyptic noise blends elements of industrial, doom, and dubstep, and contorts that mass into some chilling, unrecognizable form…” – Stereogum

 “…a remarkably bleak and sinister record that explores the depressive and psychedelic in entirely new ways.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
