Cult & Culture Podcast Episode 37 feat. Satanic Planet

In the latest episode of Cult and Culture, Luke and Justin have a conversation with Lucien Greaves, co-founder of The Satanic Temple and Satanic Planet. Some may remember that they had done an earlier episode with him in 2019; since then, and largely as a result of that podcast conversation, they created Satanic Planet, a musical project which combines the previously formed Planet B with the addition of Greaves (They also went on to enlist Dave Lombardo for the recording of both albums). Here, they discuss the evolution of the band from their initial vision, and how the newest album which is currently being recorded has shifted from the first in numerous ways, including the overall purpose and instrumentation used. Lucien gives insight into being on stage as a vocalist for the first time, and the ability to really enjoy the experience and share positive energy with the crowd rather than the more combative lecture settings he has become accustomed to. They also reflect on playing the Indiana State Capitol show as a counter to Christian Fundamentalist Sean Feucht’s “Let Us Worship” tour, and talk about the future of the band, including their goal of playing the DC Capitol Building.
