Satanic Planet, the new band featuring Justin Pearson (The Locust, Dead Cross), Dave Lombardo (Suicidal Tendencies, Dead Cross, ex-Slayer), Luke Henshaw (Planet B) and Lucien Greaves (co-founder of The Satanic Temple), has finally dropped their debut single. The band is now streaming "Baphomet" alongside an unsettling new music video, which Greaves said is supposed to be very contrasting.
"Goat headed, human bodied, and three-horned, the Baphomet is an icon symbolizing the reconciliation of opposites; dueling binaries combined and transcending into something greater than the sum of their parts. The track we have titled Baphomet blends the electronic with the medieval, the drone with the sceam, the raucous with the orchestral. These conflicting elements, we hope, blend to create Easy Listening for the Apocalypse."
"Baphomet" was edited by Displaced/Replaced, directed by Luke Henshaw, with cinematography by Becky DiGiglio. Satanic Planet will release their self-titled debut album on May 28, with pre-orders available here.
