Backmasking (also known as backward masking) 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, whereas a message found through phonetic reversal may be unintentional.
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. The technique has also been used to censor words or phrases for “clean” releases of songs.
And for the most famous of them all.
Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven
If there is a bustle in your headgerow,
dont be alarmed now, its just a spring clean for the may queen.
Yes there are two paths you can go by ,
but in the long run there’s still time to change the road your on.
now as you all can see.. this lyrics do not show any demonic stuff going on. And it seems quite normal for a song.. But wait till you c the reversed lyrics –
Oh, here’s to my sweet Satan.
The one who’s little path would make me sad,
who’s power is satan.
He’ll give those with him 666,
there was a little toolshed where he made us suffer, sad satan
Damn writing this even makes me sick… Please beware of the music which enters your ears.. you might not know what hidden massages lie inside them….
