Back Masking


Backmasking is a recording technique in which a sound or message is recorded backward onto a track that is meant to be played forward. Backmasking is a deliberate process.

Backmasking was popularized by The Beatles, who used backward vocals and instrumentation on their 1966 album Revolver. Artists have since used backmasking for artistic, comedic, and satiric effect, on both analog and digital recordings.

Satanic Backmasking

Although the Satanic backmasking controversy involved mainly classic rock songs whose authors denied any intent to promote Satanism, backmasking has been used by heavy metal bands to deliberately insert messages in their lyrics or imagery. Bands have utilized Satanic imagery for commercial reasons. For example, thrash metal band Slayer included at the start of the band’s 1985 album Hell Awaits a deep backmasked voice chanting “Join Us” over and over.

This is a list of backmasked messages.

Below is a flash animation that has some songs and their corresponding backmasked messages recorded. Its amazing. Have a look. My favourite being Stairway to heaven; kiss, kiss, kiss; …baby one more time, Another one bites the dust, The Doors…

Its fun to know that some of your favourite songs have such different dimensions.

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly).
