During a recent interview with Brooklyn Vegan, Justin Pearson (Dead Cross, The Locust, etc.) talked a bit about Satanic Planet, the project he’s working on with Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, ex-Slayer, etc.), Luke Henshaw (Planet B, etc.), and Satanic Temple founder Lucien Greaves. According to him, the band’s new album will be “pretty fucked sounding.”
Pearson said the following about Lombardo’s involvement in the project:
“We had the bulk of the album done and wanted to see if he’d play on one specific track, and maybe a second. We sent files and then, one track turned into one, then two, then three, and now the entire album, which is awesome. I love the dude and what he is contributing to each track.”
He also added the following about the group’s musical direction and Lucien’s involvement:
“Well, I wouldn’t describe the sound. As I do with most of the stuff I am part if, I just say it’s ‘annoying,’ which it mostly is, and it’s meant to be. I’m also trying to coin that as an actual genre of music, for all the weird shit that can’t be easily placed in a box for marketing purposes. As for Lucien’s involvement, he does all of the lyric writing and a good amount of the vocals. But back to what it sounds like… it’s basically pretty fucked sounding, in the realm of industrial music, but really disjointed, uneasy. It’s supposed to sound like what one would assume a satanic record would sound like.”
He continued when asked about release plans:
“We still need to finish up the album. We are planning on starting to mix it soon, and then hopefully find a label to release it. With who is involved in the project, and our friends who have contributed to the tracks such as [Cattle Decapitation’s] Travis Ryan and Jung Sing, I think it will be well received as bizarre as it is turning out. I really look forward to the world hearing it.”
