One thing I’ve always said about SATANIC PUNISH since discovering them at the start of 2020 is that I respect their attitude of writing songs and singing about whatever they like, no matter what it is, which is something you don’t see other idol groups really doing, even in the underground scene.
The person to thank for this alternative view in idol music is FUDOU GANTETSU, the group’s producer, a person with strong beliefs and a strong will.
The majority of the following interview is with FUDOU, although there are some brief thoughts from the group’s two members, WEBSHIKI and USAGI.
Q : 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, how has Satanic Punish dealt with 2020 ?
FUDOU : Yes, it’s been a very difficult year for us, the most difficult thing for us has been not being able to do live performances, and we had to postpone the recording and release of our upcoming single.
Q: Webshiki & Usagi, you are very strong people, what motivates you the most ?
Webshiki : It’s performing live, I always want to give a better performance than last time, so I’m always more motivated when fans and first-timers praise me.
Usagi : First is a big cheer from everyone who supports me. Also, when I do something that I couldn’t do in practice, I want to do the performance sooner, which will motivate me even more.
Q: You wrote a song called “Bully”, about a girl known as “#ssb84t”, I respect that you wrote a song about this subject. Are there any restrictions on what Satanic Punish can sing about ?
FUDOU : No, our songs are based on historical facts, so we do not set any regulations or restrictions.
Our music is cathartic, that’s one word to describe it. Our music is propaganda and we consider it a medium to convey the truth, therefore, everything is expressed honestly without sugar-coating it.
Q : You recently announced your new single “Alpha Omega” will be released in December, what can we expect from it ?
FUDOU : From our new single “Alpha Omega”, you can experience the profound feeling, violence and aggression of Satanic Punish, which has become a true system.
Of all our songs that are currently released, the new song “Alpha Omega” can be recommended with particular confidence.
Q : Overseas fans are very enthusiastic, but how important are overseas fans to Satanic Punish?
FUDOU : So to speak, I think they are essential
Overseas, the LOUD culture is flourishing, that is why every overseas fan who appreciates our music is a reason for us to continue to exist.
We will continue to release famous songs, so we appreciate your continued support.
The songs scheduled to be released in 2021 are all dangerous songs
Q: Finally, what can we expect from Satanic Punish in 2021 ?
FUDOU : We want to release new songs regularly next year, the new songs to be released will exceed “Pray For Satan”, and we are planning to release only brutal, heavy and crazy songs.
