Nightsatan caught the ear of the attentive laser metal enthusiast with their debut album, Midnight Laser Warrior, in 2010, and now the trio debut as movie stars in Nightsatan and the Loops Of Doom. The movie draws inspiration from the very same source the band does: '80s post-apocalyptic science fiction.
The synth trio Nightsatan hail from the doomy city of Turku, Finland, and they place themselves firmly in the post-apocalyptic laser metal genre. From the beginning, synth warrior Wolf Rami envisioned the band's music as "the soundtrack to Miami Vice meets heavy metal." During their career, the band's sound has extended to both ends of that spectrum, and the synth-metal riffs of the early material have given way for a more progressive and atmospheric approach.
Given the international cult fame gained with the already quite cinematic debut album - with kudos given by the likes of Monocle, Empire, and Popvoyage - and live shows in their native Finland and Sweden, it is fitting that the trio's next step is a movie soundtrack. Directed by Chrzu, better known as the director of animated films such as Curse of the Remote Island (2008), Nightsatan and the Loops of Doom is a proud tribute to vintage Italian post-apocalyptic sci-if. It is a very unusual short epic, full of sex, violence, and a general sense of wonder. The soundtrack album is a considerably more grandiose and measured affair than its predecessor. Recorded and produced by the band's second keyboard wizard Mazathoth, the album features full-length versions of all tracks from the movie.
