Inverse Records release: November 22nd 2019
King Satan from Tampere, Finland, founded in 2015 by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist King Aleister Satan, have already impressed me on several occasions live on stage. Admittedly, the band name might provoke some expectations which won’t be met. Because there’s no noticable Satanism and no Black Metal whatsoever… Their style is rather harsh extreme metal, heavily infused with different elements all the way from hard rock and death punk to aggrotech and electro-industrial. And danceable. Fans of Fear of Domination, Turmion Kätilöt or Black Light Discipline will enjoy this band too. However, there is less metal or ear candy quality in comparison with BLD. Here you get an EBM selection from aggressive speed to atmospheric ballad (Raison d’Etre), church organ and radio play (Circus of the Mind), occasionally keyboarder Katherine Boss adds some vocals too. The perfect soundtrack for your EBM party.
