SataN, the most powerful force in the human life, the one who is accessing the most incredible amount of power nowadays, the tornado who is leading the humanity to global enslavement through technology, applied cybernetics. Science above the flesh. We are hailing the Great Beast and the rising New Babylon as we can see nowadays its triumph is coming. The signs are here, just look around to the arrogance and cruelty of the modern world.Saint Vincent / Blacklodge interview, Lachryma Christi, 2012
BLACKLODGE released their second album on this day in 2006 through End All Life.
We mainly attract people from the black metal scene, as we started from there and we have been signed by End All Life for couple of years, which is a cult black metal label. Now, it is true we met more and more varied fans from different scene, but the majority are black metal fans. This is due I guess to the satanic message of the band. Before "SolarKult" we were about to meet a very famous hardcore DJ to work with him(I won't say his name). Though he freaked out when he understood the satanic spirit of the band. I guess people from other scenes are not ready for this, but it would be a great honor to pollute their mind and spread the worlds of SataN !Saint Vincent / Blacklodge interview, Lachryma Christi, 2012
The band took their name from David Lynch's 1990 television series.
I have been very impressed by the [Twin Peaks] serie back in 1991 when it was programmed on French tv. I discovered a twisted vision of reality with a secret mystical feeling, that was very close to my own vision of life. Hallucinations that are more real than reality, connection, synchronicity, hidden places in which you are without knowing it...real places in which you are actually not...I actually decided back then that the band I will create will be named "Blacklodge" and I tattooed "Fire Walk With Me" on my arm. Though, the band never refers directly to the serie, just couples of winks are there and there for the attentive eyes.Saint Vincent / Blacklodge interview, Lachryma Christi, 2012
