Formed in the mid-80's, with previous releases on high-calibre labels such as Broken Flag, Cold Spring, Trident, Mindscan, and Tesco Organisation, Industrial / Power Electronics veteran SATØRI returns with a new dark and disturbing journey into the very depths of human horror.

"Debris in the corners; steel shavings and teeth..."

Using his love of pure noise, harsh synths and brutal percussion, SATØRI has created a dystopian cinematic soundscape in which it would be entirely possible to lose your very soul.

While the last two releases concentrated on what could be described as "observations on humanity's ability to drag itself down to its lowest common denominator", this new work focuses on a more localised depravity - that of the lone wolf. An individual who, having no moral compass, has no boundaries to cross.

"...there is something wrong here"

An overcast autumn afternoon in the forest and a light rain crackles the fallen leaves. The camera, low to the ground, follows behind a pair of well-worn work boots as they approach a rundown shack deep in the undergrowth. As we move closer the air seems to thicken. To the side is what appears to be a shed or garage. Wooden double doors rotten at the base but firmly chained and padlocked. The camera moves to the front and rises to eye level. Hands reach out to undo the locks. For some inescapable reason we know that inside we are going to find pure unadulterated evil.

Welcome to The Woods.

"Noise release of this week... Satøri mixes noise and rhythm, and the music has a lyrical side... I think of 'The Woods' as the nightmare of being alone, lost in the woods, and hunted down by an unknown predator... A horror soundtrack, and that's how the music sounds. Deep and furious... There is no endless stream of sound or noise for the sake of noise. We're dealing here with someone who gave his noise thought, composition, direction and focus, unlike many others in this musical world. Powerful stuff, a solid ear cleaner, and a great racket for this week" (Vital Weekly)

"El horror en estado puro... Dave Kirby ahonda en esta obra en ese lado obscuro y demoníaco del ser humano manifestado en sus impulsos irracionales más destructivos y viscerales... Power Electronics innovador y deslumbrante en su siniestra belleza musical... espectacular!" (Lux Atenea)
