Clouds Taste Satanic

Track Overview:

1. Funeral For A Friend (6:00)

An Elton John cover? This is one hell of a version. Heavy and psychedelic.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 1: The Book of Satan'


2. Behind The Wall Of Sleep (3:20)

Being that Black Sabbath is already heavy, this cover feels so natural. The way they cover Ozzy's vocals with stoner guitars riffs is fabulous. Makes us want to hear the original, yet we cannot take this off.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 2: The Book of Lucifer'


3. If You Doom Me Now (4:53)

Yup, this is a cover of the 1976 Chicago hit. Love the name change and this cover is so damn infectious. Kudos to CTS.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 2: The Book of Lucifer'


4. Blew (3:53)

This early Nirvana song is blessed to be covered by CTS. Loving the guitar tone on this one, plus they somehow kept a slight grunge feel among the doom. We love how they snuck a bit of Smells Like Teen Spirit into the mix.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 3: The Book of Belial'


5. Sleeping On The Roof (4:18)

CTS take this calming 1999 Flaming Lips instrumental and lace it with tremendous post-doom wonderment. They definitely do this tune justice... it's beautiful doom here folks.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 4: The Book of Leviathan'


6. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2:07)

This classical score written by composer Richard Strauss is dramatic with an epic monumental sound.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 1: The Book of Satan'


7. Not Fragile/Freewheelin' (5:36)

The cover of these Bachman-Turner Overdrive tunes are thick and rich with some good energy. Makes us want to go back and listen to the originals.

Bonus Track


8. Cecilia Ann/Rock Music (5:12)

It's amazing how CTS keep the original versions of these songs intact while giving them a heavy facelift.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 3: The Book of Belial'


9. Auf Wiedersehen (4:34)

A blissfully heavy rendition of the 1978 Cheap Trick deep cut. This track oozes with doom fluidity.

From 'The Satanic Singles Series Vol. 4: The Book of Leviathan'


10. In The Flesh?/One Of These Days (6:04)

Well what can you say about a Pink Floyd cover. It's fits right into CTS's wheelhouse. They definitely do these songs justice. The slight post-doom heaviness is a nice variation to the originals. The bass work steals the show.

Bonus Track

Album Nuggets

Brew Pairing

We're going with a brew from New York. About an hour north from Brooklyn, get some Barnyard Rockstar from Tin Barn Brewing in Sugar Loaf, NY. This 10% Triple NEIPA is a bit fruity with some bite, a perfect sidekick with Clouds Taste Satanic.
