SADIST - CRUST - DISPLEASED
Upon release of its debut album on Nosferatu Records Italy's Sadist was
instantly heralded by its label as the biggest thing since Tortellini.
Similarly, Displeased Records showers accolades upon the spaghetti
keyboard rockers like there is no tomorrow. Phrases like "original",
"unbreakable", "outstanding" and a "fresh drive" poured like spaghetti
a Wednesday night. Sadist, however, are best described as a cross
between the thrash metal of Voi Vod and Coroner-gone-synthesizer crazy.
In fact, there were reports that the band planned on incorporating two
keyboardists a couple of years back. Imagine the poster in the city
centre. "In concert! Depeche Mode with special guests Sadist." Now you
know where this bunch draw their influences from. - Ali "The Metallian"
