Brooklyn’s CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC Return In October With New ‘SECOND SIGHT’ Album, Follow-up To April’s ‘EVIL EYE’!
As promised, instrumental Post-Doom quartet CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC will release their sixth album on October 31, 2019, on Halloween. The new record ‘Second Sight’ features two 20-minute songs on two sides of vinyl and is the second of two CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC records out this year.
Consider ‘Second Sight’ to be Part 2 of a two record set, which sees the band maintaining their “Riffs Rule All” credo, with added doses of introspection by way of mixed tempos, spacy interludes, jazzy breaks, and epic finales that started with ‘Evil Eye’. As with its predecessor, each song is divided into three parts and explores the worlds of Lesser and Greater Magic, as inspired by The Theory and Practice of Satanic Magic, which is part of The Satanic Bible.
‘Second Sight’ Tracklist: Second Sight
Lesser Magic (first track “Second Sight”) – “consists of the wile and guile obtained through various devices and contrived situations, which when utilized can create change in accordance with one’s will.” Greater Magic (second track “Black Mass”), also known as Ritual Magic – “consists of the performance of a formal ceremony, taking place, at least in part, within the confines of an area set aside for such purposes and at a specific time.”
Guitarist Steve Scavuzzo states:
“Despite the mystical mellowness the name implies, Second Sight is actually the most aggressive Clouds Taste Satanic record to date. Not sure when that happened, but at some point the doom turned angry.”
Also like its predecessor, the album recordings for ‘Second Sight’ were engineered and mixed by Ben Rice at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, and mastered by Alan Douches (High On Fire, Converge, Mastodon) at West West Side Music. The cover and inner sleeve art are original pieces by Goatess Doomwych whose work has graced numerous doom music covers and artwork posters, including albums by Dead Witches.

CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2013. These Post-Doom Instrumentalists have steadily built a reputation as one of the few truly great DIY riff-heavy underground bands playing today. Patiently and deliberately developing a unique sound that melds riff-dominated Stoner Rock with Heavy Doom, their live show is a multi-sensory atmospheric display, offering a true experience and companion to their albums.
In 2014, the band released their debut album, ‘To Sleep Beyond the Earth’. The debut, along with second album ‘Your Doom Has Come’ (2015), third album ‘Dawn of the Satanic Age’ (2016), fourth full-length ‘The Glitter of Infinite Hell’ (2017), and their most recent ‘Evil Eye’ (2019) all demonstrate the band has no intentions of slowing down. The band celebrated its fifth year anniversary in 2018 by releasing ‘In Search of Heavy,’ a four CD Box Set.
All Clouds Taste Satanic releases have received praise from such illustrious publications as Decibel Magazine and across the internet via Invisible Oranges, CVLT Nation, Doomed & Stoned, The Sludgelord, and many more.
In 2019, the band has retained solid footing without falter, soon to achieve a bold goal of releasing two albums in one year. ‘Evil Eye’ came out April 30th (Walpurgis Eve), and we now await ‘Second Sight’ on October 31st (Halloween).
