NYC’s Clouds Taste Satanic, synonymous with their apocalyptic instrumental post-doom are gearing up to release the second instalment of The Satanic Singles Series, where for each volume, four in total, the quartet will re-imagine songs that have helped shaped not only the band, but also the individual members over their formative years.
Volume 2 of this highly anticipated series will be released independently tomorrow, Friday 4th December, before then, both tracks can be streamed below, but first, here’s an insight into the bands choices…
‘Black Sabbath is probably an expected choice but Behind The Wall Of Sleep still seems like a lesser known classic and fits well with our instrumental interpretation. Bonus points to anyone who can name the other iconic heavy band and song reference at the end of the lead. We are all Chicago fans and there are more than a few of their tunes that are riff orientated but, for some reason that we have yet to figure out, our drummer is obsessed with If You Leave Me Now. Happy drummer, happy band.’

More On Clouds Taste Satanic & ‘The Satanic Singles Series’
Instrumental post-doom quartet Clouds Taste Satanic are back with Volume 2 of The Satanic Singles Series. The Satanic Singles are covers of tunes that have had a profound influence on the band but are not necessarily from the metal/doom genres.
Volume 2, which comes out on December 4, 2020, features Behind The Wall Of Sleep (Black Sabbath, clearly Doom) b/w If You Doom Me Now (Chicago, clearly Not Doom). Two more singles will be released in January and February 2021, all leading up to a new Cloud Covered album, scheduled for release in March and will have two additional tunes not included in The Satanic Singles Series.
Like their last several releases, the songs included in The Satanic Singles Series were engineered and mixed by Ben Rice at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn and mastered by Alan Douches (High On Fire, Converge, Mastodon) at West West Side Music. The Satanic Singles Series artwork is all original pieces by Alexandre Goulet, whose graphic design work has graced numerous metal records including every album by Dopethrone. Be Heavy or Be Doomed…

Clouds Taste Satanic formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2013. These post-doom instrumentalists have steadily built a reputation as one of the few truly great DIY riff-heavy underground bands playing today. Patiently and deliberately developing a unique sound that melds riff-dominated stoner rock with heavy doom, their live show is a multi-sensory atmospheric display, offering a true experience and companion to their albums.
In 2014, the band released their debut album, To Sleep Beyond The Earth. The debut, along with sophomore album Your Doom Has Come (2015), third album Dawn Of The Satanic Age (2016), fourth full-length The Glitter Of Infinite Hell (2017) and their most recent releases Evil Eye and Second Sight (both in 2019) have all received praise from such illustrious publications as Decibel Magazine, as well as across the internet and social media via CVLT Nation, Doomed & Stoned, The Sludgelord, Invisible Oranges, and many, many more. The band celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2018 by releasing In Search Of Heavy, a four CD Box Set of their complete discography from 2014-2018. We have no doubt that this band has only just begun to stoke the flames of perdition…
