Out For Blood
3/29/2007 - Review by: David Loveless
Sadus - Out For Blood - 2006 - Mascot Records
As much as I liked the back catalog of Sadus, especially Swallowed In Black and Chemical Exposure, Out For Blood completely blows them out of the park! With an outstanding production effort - not seen on most of their earlier releases - Satus are definately back and out for blood (no pun intended). In The Name Of is the perfect album opener as it shows that the trash trio have not forgotten the necessary elements for creating a thrash metal masterpiece. As soon as the vocals kick in, you get the feeling as if your back in 1989, thrashing around in your old Anthrax "Spreading The Disease" t-shirt. The vocals and all instruments are equally presented in the forefront, creating a brutal assault of technical thrash wizzardry. The second song, No More, continues the thrashing with a short synth intro followed by a powerful down-tempo riff with spacey keyboard improvisations. This is the song that will make you angry, while setting the tone for the remainder of the album. The rest of the album is a mindbending journey into the thrash zone - an area that has been desolate for quite some time now.
Once again, Sadas has left their mark as a band to be recogned with. I applaud Sadus for making the bold move of returning to the metal scene and their thrash roots. It's time to reclaim the metal scene from the nu-metal trend and with Sadus at the helm, the thrash revolution is bound to reek havok on all the talentless, rip-off bands that are stealing the scene. Sadus definately has my vote with one of the top 10 metal albums of 2006.
