"CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC is a band that never ceases to amaze me. Everything about them gets more captivating with each record they release. Their music is an audio banquet that I need to taste all of." - Cvlt Nation
As promised, instrumental Post-Doom quartet CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC will release their sixth album on October 31, 2019, on Halloween. The new record 'Second Sight' features two 20-minute songs on two sides of vinyl and is the second of two CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC records out this year. Consider 'Second Sight' to be Part 2 of a two record set, which sees the band maintaining their “Riffs Rule All” credo, with added doses of introspection by way of mixed tempos, spacy interludes, jazzy breaks, and epic finales that started with 'Evil Eye'. As with its predecessor, each song is divided into three parts and explores the worlds of Lesser and Greater Magic, as inspired by The Theory and Practice of Satanic Magic, which is part of The Satanic Bible.
'Second Sight' Tracklist: Second Sight Black Mass
Lesser Magic (first track "Second Sight") - “consists of the wile and guile obtained through various devices and contrived situations, which when utilized can create change in accordance with one’s will.” Greater Magic (second track "Black Mass"), also known as Ritual Magic - “consists of the performance of a formal ceremony, taking place, at least in part, within the confines of an area set aside for such purposes and at a specific time.” Guitarist Steve Scavuzzo states: "Despite the mystical mellowness the name implies, Second Sight is actually the most aggressive Clouds Taste Satanic record to date. Not sure when that happened, but at some point the doom turned angry." Also like its predecessor, the album recordings for 'Second Sight' 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 cover and inner sleeve art are original pieces by Goatess Doomwych whose work has graced numerous doom music covers and artwork posters, including albums by Dead Witches.
