Locust / Dead Cross Supergroup Satanic Planet Announce Debut Album
Hear the self-titled record's first single "Baphomet"
Published Mar 26, 2021Satanic Planet — the newly formed metal supergroup featuring Justin Pearson (the Locust, Dead Cross), Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, ex-Slayer), Luke Henshaw (Planet B) and Lucien Greaves (co-founder of the Satanic Temple) — have announced their debut album, as well as given us its first single.
The self-titled album will arrive via Three One G on May 28. Right now, though, you can hear the new single "Baphomet" via a freshly delivered video.
"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," Greaves said in a statement. "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."
Check out "Baphomet" below.
As for the album as a whole, it features guest spots by Cattle Decapitation's Travis Ryan, Nomi Abadi, Silent's Jung Sing, Shiva Honey, Eric Livingston (also known as his artist moniker, First Church of the Void), and Hexa's Carrie Feller.
Satanic Planet was recorded and produced by Luke Henshaw and Dave Lombardo. Mixed and mastered by Brent Asbury.
