SATANIC PUNISH, a group that I’ve really come to love during 2020, they are a group that I think should be talked about more then they are, especially be overseas fans, because, you see, SATANIC PUNISH have a small, but very loyal fanbase outside of Japan that over the course of this year, I have regularly seen at their live shows (the online ones anyway).
As you can probably tell, this is pretty much a ramble about my year as a SATANIC PUNISH fan, I first heard about them at the start of the year, when Idol Underworld was promoting them (IU’s promotion of the group has since ended), and the song “Pray For Satan” was released, I loved how intense and ruthless the song was, and started to follow the group.
Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to interview the group via Skype, and during that time I was able to bond with the members and staff, unfortunately, due to issues related to a previous project I was involved in, that interview is only available in audio form.
Usagi and Webshiki, the two members that make up Satanic Punish are wonderful people, and we regularly talk on Twitter about live shows, and general updates they post, they are an absolute joy to interact with.
The same goes for Fudou, the group’s manager, I have all the time in the world for Fudou, again, a person who is just wonderful.
The group recently released “Alpha Omega”, a song that i actually heard several times before release, as the group regularly perform it at lives, and have done for most of the year.
All in all, Satanic Punish are a group that more western underground idol fans NEED to listen to, and it disappoints me that more people don’t talk about them.
Thank you to the members and staff of Satanic Punish for changing my outlook on the world, I’ll forever be grateful to all of you
I think 2021 will be the year of SATANIC PUNISH !
