Satanic Planet, the project featuring Justin Pearson (Dead Cross, The Locust, etc.), Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, ex-Slayer, etc.), Luke Henshaw (Planet B, etc.), and Satanic Temple founder Lucien Greaves, have premiered a new video for their song “Devil In Me.” That track is from the band’s recently released self-titled debut album.
Director Lola Blanc told Fangoria the following:
“I watched the documentary ‘Hail, Satan?’ on Hulu and was immediately intrigued by The Satanic Temple, their co-founder Lucien Greaves, and the work they do, so I asked Lucien to come on my podcast. While we were interviewing him, I found out his band Satanic Planet (comprised of Greaves, Luke Henshaw, The Locust’s Justin Pearson and Slayer’s Dave Lombardo) had an album coming out, I *ever so casually* dropped my strong interest in doing a video for them, and here we are!”
“I specifically requested the song ‘Devil in Me’ because it immediately evoked the feeling of an exorcism. The horrors that can happen when religion is taken to the extreme was a theme we were clearly very aligned on, so it just felt like a perfect fit.”
