SATOR

Psychedelic Sludge

Sator plays Psychedelic Sludge Heaviness.
We formed in 2013 in Genoa, Italy, coming from an hardcore punk background.
We love to mix heavy, psyched out sounds, influenced by both classic and modern bands: from the pioners of doom & kraut muzik to the modern sludge & post metal.
Dirty, gloomy and obsessed songs, accompanied by an obscure and deep voice that gives no hope.
Sator (sower, producer, father in Latin) creates the word Saturn, the divinity, whom was told that one of his children would have dethroned him one day. So he decided to devour all his progeny. The process of making ancient gods (and all their very little divine flaws) human gave us the hint for the name of our band. We imagined it as a symbol of our society that devours itself for its personal interests.
We don't want to denounce anything through our lyrics, on the contrary we want to describe and express a sort of exorcism of the situation without the typical hope that belongs to human beings. In fact looking up in the dictionary the meaning of doom is “death or destruction, any terrible event that you cannot avoid”

Our first lp came out in July 2016, released by Taxi Driver Records, obtaining good responses worldwide.
In 2017 we signed with Argonauta Records, which released our second album "Ordeal". As we got more and more positive reviews, we played a long series of gigs as well as in many tours and festivals in Italy and Europe.
Our last work is the split tape with fellow italian sludgers Evil Cosby out on Slaughterhouse Records.
