Satan - 'Burning Portrait' (video)

In your mind hangs a picture of yourself
It’s the man that you wanted to be
There were times when you’d stop to admire
The fine strokes of a confident hand
And it’s honesty
Now you’ve covered it over
Now you can’t bear to look
You can’t stand to face up
To what you forsook
Your portrait is burning burning
Douse the fire now
Burning out of control
Yet you seem so invincible somehow

Once you were revered by statesmen
And cardinals sought your advice
Your name was embossed on the lips of the great
And the good and the famous but oh what a price
Now the paint is corrupted
It's consuming your mind
Devouring itself and each principle
You left behind
Your effigy's burning burning
Kill this fire now
Burning into your soul
Are you still invincible now?

Enslaved to the dark side of the mirror
From whence there is no return
Bonded for the price of nothing dearer
Than a cause-celebre you'd eventually spurn
The eyes of the portrait, they turn
Glaring at you as they burn

In the end you were tempted away
From the path you had wanted to take
Such is life in the limelight
When you trade integrity for gold
You were warned Heaven's sake
You had such good intentions
They just melted away
Like the paint on your picture
And now you must pay
Your portrait is burning burning
Douse the fire now
Burning out of control
Burning burning
Kill this fire now
Burning into your soul
You were never invincible


Ένα από τα πλέον αγαπημένα μου συγκροτήματα (και από τις καλύτερες μπάντες που κυκλοφορούν εκεί έξω), οι Satan, επιστρέφουν δισκογραφικά μετά από μία τετραετία. Ο διάδοχος του (φοβερού και τρομερού) album "Cruel Magic" τιτλοφορείται "Earth Infernal" κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει την πρωταπριλιά.

Οι Satan υπάρχουν στο heavy metal σύμπαν (περισσότερες από) τέσσερις δεκαετίες. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 1979 και συνεχίζουν, με διαλείμματα, μέχρι τις ημέρες μας (αν κι όχι πάντα με αυτό το όνομα). Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει πέντε "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν τρία demos, τρία singles, ένα ep, τρεις συλλογές και δύο live albums)...

Ο δίσκος των Satan 'Earth Infernal'
Δελτίο τύπου: «'Earth Infernal' is a product of the times that birthed it, and could only be the work of Satan. Having churned out cutting edge heavy metal throughout the 80's - and reunited in 2011 - their sixth full-length maintains the high standard they long ago set, and it is perhaps their timeliest release.

"For two years the world has been preoccupied with politics and pandemics and while we were all looking the other way our planet has continued to get hotter," says guitarist Russ Tippins. "Our Earth is now infernally hot. Almost irreversibly so. We are on a one way trip to Hell and dragging our children and their children along with us. Yes, Satan has something to say about global warming".»
