Robotic voice and heavy metal. Do they really mean something special when they come together? Even if they do, then would this album be a good example to understand the real potential? I spent my last days looking for some answers, and one thing’s for sure I know I won’t be forgetting about Satanic Puppeteer Orchestra anytime soon only because they are the first band with a such music style that I know.
It was the Face The Fears album that introduced me to this project for the first time, about two weeks ago. The musical side of the project has so much in common with my generation who grew up in the 90s. It’s always a great pleasure hearing ’90s heavy and thrash metal influences from Metallica, Pantera, and Iron Maiden are being performed with the right attitude in that old-school metal guitar sound similar to theirs. The album blends these influences in a familiar and old-school way, only, accompanied by a digital robotic voice as vocals.
The technical side of the work objectively has satisfying standards. Guitars stand out as the main foundation of their music, songs are usually following a progressive path.
Lastly, the idea behind the project has got potential because it immediately stays with the listener after you hear about them once. Comic visuals, heavy metal, and robotic vocals, can’t get any more recognizable than that.
