Clouds Taste Satanic


Instrumental Post-Doom Quartet Release Cloud Covered

Instrumental Post-Doom quartet CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC release their seventh album on March 19, 2021.  Titled Cloud Covered, the new record features covers of tunes that have had a profound influence on the band but are not necessarily from the Metal/Doom genre.  Portions of the album were previewed in The Satanic Singles Series which released its first of four parts on November 6, 2020 featuring Funeral For A Friend  b/w Also Sprach Zarathustra.  Three more singles were released in December, January and February leading up to the full length Cloud Covered album which has two additional tunes not released in the Singles Series.  Without a doubt these covers will be heavier than the originals but not necessarily doomier.  After 6 full-length albums (one a double) of original instrumental doom, Cloud Covered is a way for the band to change up the pace both for themselves and their supporters.  Still fully instrumental but with songs well under the 20 minute mark, these songs make for a somewhat different CTS listening experience.  The songs included in Cloud Covered 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 Cloud Covered art is by Alexandre Goulet whose graphic design work has graced every Dopethrone record to date.  Be Heavy or Be Doomed…

CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2013.  These Post-Doom Instrumentalists have steadily built a reputation as one of the few truly great DIY riff-heavy underground bands playing today.  Patiently and deliberately developing a unique sound that melds riff-dominated Stoner Rock with Heavy Doom, their live show is a multi-sensory atmospheric display, offering a true experience and companion to their albums.  In 2014, the band released their debut album, To Sleep Beyond the Earth.  The debut, along with second album Your Doom Has Come (2015), third album Dawn of the Satanic Age (2016), fourth album The Glitter of Infinite Hell (2017) and their most recent Evil Eye and Second Sight (2019) have all received praise from such illustrious publications as Decibel Magazine as well as across the internet and social media via CVLT Nation, Doomed & Stoned, The Sludgelord, Invisible Oranges and many, many more.  The band celebrated its fifth year anniversary by releasing In Search of Heavy, a four CD Box Set of their complete discography to date.
