Satanique Samba Trio biography
Not satanic, not samba and not a trio, this avant-garde group plays a fascinating deconstruction of all rules Brazilian Popular Music (MPB in Portuguese) established over the years. Their instrumentation is as varied as the styles they incorporate into their music.

In their first works, "Misantropicalia" and "Sangrou", the group (lead by bassist and composer MUNHA) gave a few first hints of what the project might be, attacking vividly the samba-rock (and several other) musical structures. In their following works, all entitled "Bad Trip Simulator" (#2, #1 and #3, respectively), a kind of decomposition of Brazilian structures in three movements was made. In fact, they've called it the "Putrefaction Trilogy" to establish with precision the goal of the group - this time, together with the samba and MPB recompositions, the sounds of Northeastern Brazil were also rethinked and played.

If "Satan" means originally in semitic languages "the enemy", the one to stand against and so forth, SATANIQUE SAMBA TRIO is the Satan of Brazilian popular music.

Original and eerie, this band will be of interest to fans of bands like SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM, DOCTOR NERVE and other avant-rock bands.

Review by JackHustler

5 stars It's official: Satanique Samba Trio has become my favorite contemporary artist with this one. I bought it by the end of March and it is still spinning, both in my head and on my record player. In the end, "Mó Bad" is quite the earworm, which is already an accomplishment by itself, considering the fact that every single tune is absolutely weird. I mean really really weird: one could describe "Mó Bad" as a compilation of whacky avantgarde-bossa-nova-samba-jazz bagatelles (short unpretentious instrumental pieces, according to Wikipedia) recorded with cell phones and old tape recorders by some mad scientist from Brazil. When musical themes born from such an environment get to crawl up into your brain, it's hard not to surrender. I did. I love it. I'm doomed!

Review by GKR

5 stars So this is where my journey begins inside the Satanic world Munha Club (Club is just there for comic and irreverent effects - that can not escape a review of SS3, as well as a huge lenght of text in a parentheses).

The First album of "Trilogy of Putrefacion", the sound of SS3 clearly changes without necessarily sound differently from the previous works. In other words, if before we saw attacks on various kinds of musical styles, including some loudest sounds and even some hints of "noisy music", here we see an attack aimming directly the dogmas. The sniper has replaced the "day of rage" - and surprisingly, the sound disturbing as it is, is enjoyable!

The opening of "Lambada Post Mortem" is already an excellent example of this. Although not necessarily a Brazilian musical style, it is dismantled as it deserves. "Cabra da peste negra", whose name already evokes northeastern traditions, follows the same line of deconstruction - even with a flute segment that seems to carry the music forward, only to strike it down. Two things caught my attention enough: the licks of electric guitar and bass pattern very present and striking. The acoustic guitar is also marked on tracks like "Tagua York City Molestus Ostinato". The string set also sometimes appears, and surprisingly not to destroy as much as I imagined that would.

"DF DEATH TRAP" is perhaps where the group most shows the general intentions of the project. There is no instrumental line to follow the rules! No rest! No mercy! "Luciferi Tum tum" slightly returns to normal (I said that !?). As well as "Molly Cancer" (again !?), this time with a strong riff of electric guitar. "Badtriptonic # 14," perhaps one of the boldest (which would later be placed in the collection "Mó Bad") also shows up full of moods. "Herpes Soul & Samba Zoster" reminds me of certain southern American sounds assembled together with the samba in time changes and bizarre markings that only SS3 can do (and being enjoybale!). The last three tracks are a bit heavier and striking, which establishes an intimate contact between the album and the stroke you just developed.

As the first album of the "Trilogy of Putrefacion", the meat is freshly slaughtered to take advantage of its putrefaction calmly and full of Satanism devotion.

Bad Trip Simulator #1
Satanique Samba Trio RIO/Avant-Prog

Review by JackHustler

5 stars Although not widely regarded as such, Bad Trip Simulator #1 is a crucial moment on Brazilian music.This is the point where Satanique Samba Trio goes full bezerk on Brazilian music's clichés, a project a few researchers suspect they had been developing since day one. Here, in a flagrant intent of aesthetical deconstruction, they mock and twist a great number of commonplace artifices Samba Music is known for. Trained ears will probably understand the message as soon as the percussion intro on "Banzo Bonanza" (track number 1) hits the speakers: a traditional drum roll called "rufo-de-repinique", commonly used in the end of most samba-de-partido-alto songs goes head first into the CD. From then on, one can perceive cavaco riffs being stretched into oblivion, time signatures that weren't-supposed-to-be and the constant deformation of concepts indigenous to Samba Music and its variations (i.e. samba tradicional, samba de terreiro, samba de enredo, bossa-nova, etc). Their research on both mapping and deconstructing Brazilian music would become even more evident in their next album, Bad Trip Simulator #3, one of my favorites ever.

Review by siLLy puPPy

3 stars SATANIQUE SAMBA TRIO is a very strange band from Brasilia, Brazil. Their name and imagery suggest a black metal band, but this is more of a parody of black metal because this is nothing even remotely close soundwise. The name is also a misnomer as this is neither Satanic nor a trio. The band throughout its history ranges from five to seven members. This music is actually a hybrid of the avant-prog of such greats as Henry Cow or Univers Zero mixed with traditional Brazilian pop and avant-garde samba jazz.

The instruments consist of guitar, bass, drums, trumpet and cavaquinho which is a small Portuguese guitar with four strings. This music is very avant-garde to say the least utilizing the most dissonant avant-prog and RIO leanings as heard in the strangest offerings of Henry Cow, Art Zoyd or Aqsak Maboul only presented with samba-jazz instrumentation. The weaving of traditional Brazilian sounds into the mix is what makes this truly unique. While the samba sound can be discerned at times, it is often obfuscated and twisted with extremely complex time sigs and electronic manipulations.

While the best of what this band has to offer from their future releases is here on the debut album MISANTROPICALIA, they also have a strange fascination with "The Snow EP" from Coil on a few ambient tracks with the vocals and melody almost identical to that release. If you are not familiar with Coil's music this could be an interesting addition outside the avant-samba offerings heard here but i find it a little irritating to hear it here interspersed between the regular tracks. It sounds like they just throw in the ambient vocal tracks for filler and it is basically too much of a Coil rip off for my comfort. This is a decent slice of avant-prog-jazz by SST but it is better displayed on the following albums "Sangrou" and "Bad Trip Simulators 2 & 1" where they shine in their fullest avant-garde samba jazz regalia.

Review by siLLy puPPy

4 stars The interesting thing about this Brazilian band's music is that it so successfully manages to NOT sound like anything else. They have taken their avant-garde sound to an arena that I have never experienced before and although that probably sounds like enough to scare off the musically unadventurous, this is not just random noise. This band has structure and patterns that do repeat although most often not.

SATANIQUE SAMBA TRIO is strange for many reasons. They are not particularly Satanic as far as I can gather. They are a quintet and although there is samba in this stew, they also incorporate jazz-fusion, bossa nova and rock. However none of these genres are instantly recognizable since they are all mangled together in such an extreme manner that this leaves you wondering if these guys have been licking rainforest frogs or something. You may or may not love this but you certainly won't leave thinking you've heard this all before.

The only thing that comes to mind when I hear this is what it would sound like if a chamber rock RIO band like Univers Zero decided to add all the above mentioned genres to the mix with a little electronics here and there and upped the tempo a bit with a lot more changes piled into their sound. That might come close but this band has carved out a musical niche that no one else has. The only question remains is will anyone follow. I did and i'm not sorry for it. If you love extremely unorthodox and challenging RIO fusion then you should check these guys out.

Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is strange and different in so many ways . . . .

First of all, i would like to start my review saying that this band is probably the most unusual band i have ever heard. Their name doess not make any sense: they are not a trio (the band have 5 musicians), they do not play samba (they have some samba influence though) and they are not satanic also.

Besides that, they mock the black metal bands through their song titles (that connote bad things / satan / evil, like most of the black metal songs do), their band name (that is supposedly written in a ancient and strange language, like some black metal bands are) , their cover (that portrait evil deeds) and their logo, with unintelligible letters and an inverted cross. All this mockery appears to achieve Zappa-like characteristics, specially because the stile of the jokes, and there are some Zappa in their music also, at least concerning experimentalism.

These characteristics are what drove me to them, what made me interested in finding more about this band, and i was not disappointed, though i am not exactly keen to the avant-garde style of composition and playing. As i said before, there is some samba influence here, but it does not play such an important role as you may think by this band name. they are more into experimenting music, since there can be heard even some brazilian baroque influence (specially in the Canção para Atrair Má Sorte songs, that have that baroque-like singing).

Grade and Final Thoughts

This band is very obscure and it took me some time to find things about them, including their albums. However, the effort payed off and, though this is a rather short album, it is still worth it.

The highlights here go to the Seis Temas Tropicais para Mestre Lúcifer suite, to the acts (atos) of the Canção para Atrair Má Sorte and to the Dança das Quiumbas, that is actually 2 minutes long and, after a long period of silence, have a secret song that is actually a reprise, much bigger that the actual song.
