Details zu Satanic Surfers

Bandinfos

First off, some history: Satanic Surfers played a major part in the Swedish melodic punk-rock explosion that took place in the mid nineties. Combining strong melodies and fast paced punk-rock with both personal and political lyrics, the band soon reached audiences all over the world. Early influences include bands such as SNFU, RKL and The Misfits. The band was originally founded by Rodrigo and Erik in high school back in ’89. After having gone through the usual line-up changes during its formative years, their debut EP “Skate to Hell” was recorded in ’93. After doing the first two pressings by themselves and selling more than 1,000 copies in a couple of months, the EP was re-released by Bad Taste Records in August ’94, as the first Bad Taste release ever! However, by this time Burning Heart Records had shown interest in the band and the second EP “Keep Out” was released on BHR in September the same year. Before recording their debut full length album, the band made a line-up change that probably, more than anything, would define the sound of the Satanic Surfers; Rodrigo took over the vocal duties while still playing the drums. Now the band was ready to take on the the world! Satanic Surfers released three consecutive albums on Burning Heart Records between ’95 and ’99: “Hero of our Time”, “666 Motor Inn” and “Going Nowhere Fast”, with “Hero of our Time” being their most successful release to date reaching 60,000 plus sales. This was during the golden years of melodic punkrock and the band did numerous successful tours in Europe, Canada and Australia with bands like Millencolin, Lag Wagon, Good Riddance and SNFU. Their extensive touring paid off and they soon had a strong following of loyal fans wherever they went, making them one of the biggest punk-rock bands to come out of Sweden at that time. In 2000, the band decided it was time to make some changes. The collaboration with Burning Heart Records was terminated and Satanic returned to their friends at Bad Taste Records. The two following albums, “Fragments and Fractions” (2000) and “Unconsciously Confined” (2002) showed the band using a less complex songwriting style, with shorter songs. More touring followed and in between the two albums Rodrigo made the decision to hand over the drumming responsibilities and concentrate solely on the vocals. This meant that the band would have a frontman for the first time since 1994 and as a result the live shows became more energetic and the band toured more than ever during 2002. But enough history. There’s a new Satanic Surfers album about be released on September 12th (slightly different release dates in some territories), the third one on Bad Taste Records. It’s called “Taste the Poison” and sees the band returning to Berno Studios in Malmö, for the second album in a row. After some down time following the 2002 tours, due to members leaving the band and a general need for some time off, Satanic Surfers actually began writing songs for this album more than two years ago. Everyone involved agreed that, since there were no tours booked and no deadlines to meet, there was no rush to record the album. Instead the most important thing was to gather the strongest material possible and enter the studio with the best Satanic Surfers songs ever. With Andy (bass) and Robert (drums) joining Rodrigo, Fredrik and Magnus in 2003 and 2004 respectively, the pieces fell into place and after completing a string of shows during 2004, the band was ready to enter the studio in May 2005. So what does it sound like? Well, I think it’s safe to say that while the new album has a more aggressive edge to it than the previous two, the music is still based on the melodic vocals that Satanic Surfers are known for. Soundwise it’s superior to all the previous albums, with a clear and powerful sound. When listening to the finished album, you can tell that the extra months put into writing and arranging the songs was time well spent. The songs sound more focused than in a long time. It’s kind of a mixture of the older and more recent sound of the Satanic Surfers, making “Taste the Poison” an album that the entire band is extremely happy with! And finally, what about future plans? You guessed it: touring, touring and more touring. Among other things they will be touring Sweden for the first time in seven years and they will finally make it across to the U.S. for the first time ever! http://www.badtasterecords.se/bands.asp?id=13 Banda formada en el año 1.993, en las que se puede ver las influencias de sus heroes, tanto THE MISFITS como HARD-ON. El nombre de esta banda es por tanto un tributo a esas dos bandas que tanto les gustan, de ahí el nombre compuesto por: SATANIC - Para darle un toque de horror, siguendo la escuela de Glenn Danzing y sus amigos de THE MISFITS SURFERS - Pagando el tributo a la vieja escuela de surf-punk encabezada por HARD-ONS. El tipo de musica que hace esta banda, puede decirse, que es lo más parecido a NOFX y LAG WAGON. El sello discografico BURNING HEART se fijó en ellos y les hizo crecer a pasos agintadados dentro del mundo musical, del que se han hecho una banda imprescindible dentro de su genero. Los últimos años han sido una época de cambios para Satanic Surfers. Rodrigo Alfaro ha sido, a pesar de lo que pueda parecer, la fuerza creativa de la banda y su frontman. Siendo a la vez batería y cantante estos roles eran difíciles de compaginar, pero las cosas están cambiando. Un nuevo batería ha entrado en la banda, Martin Svensson, así que Rodrigo ahora sólo maneja el micro. Martin tiene 20 años, esto trae sangre fresca al sistema circulatorio de la banda, que han rejuvenecido al menos 10 años con esta nueva adquisición. Musicalmente no distan mucho de su sonido de siempre, sigue siendo una especie de punk melódico con unas melodías soberbias que no se detienen hasta que han conseguido toda tu atención. El tempo no es tan acelerado como en sus comienzos, pero decir que se han calmado sería una exageración. Es cuando analizamos las letras que nos damos cuenta de los cambios más claramente. Seguramente seguirás encontrando uno o dos temas que hablen de la vida en la carretera o lamentando lo corto que es el verano, pero en general las letras nos hablan sobre las mentiras de los políticos. Pero lo que una vez fue agitación ahora es la urgencia de alguien que está tremendamente angustiado por lo que está pasando en el mundo hoy. Mientras hablamos, un montón de nuevas estrellas van poblando el cielo del rock comercial, dejando de lado las letras rebeldes. Mientras un montón de estas bandas tienden a perder su credibilidad, Satanic Surfers mantienen un punto de vista radical frente a la política, basándose en su experiencia real, no sólo en presunciones teóricas. Las bandas (y las de punk en particular) en un terreno pantanoso entre el activismo y la música, tienden a no criticar su propio movimiento. De este modo, el dedo apunta hacia Los Otros cuando se cuestionan ciertos valores. Letras como la de Diversity muestran claramente las tendencias de la persona que la ha escrito, en un movimiento cercano a la revolución social: "If we build up walls to surround ourselves And keep on preaching to the converted Soon this movement will be deserted There will be no one left to read the statements" Satanic Surfers son, con su larga historia en el movimiento punk, un ejemplo que imaginación, activismo e ideales no se pierden necesariamente con los años, en este caso es justo al contrario. http://www.indyrock.es/satanicsurfer.htm
