Italian legendary death metallers SADIST, who on January 29th 2021 celebrated the band’s 30th anniversary, have signed a deal with Agonia Records, for the release of the band’s ninth album “Firescorched”. The album is nearing completion and is expected to be released in 2022.
Composer, guitarist & keyboardist Tommy Talamanca, who co-founded the band in 1991, had this to say on the deal: “Partnering with Agonia Records feels like the start of a new chapter for Sadist and we’re very much looking forward to a great collaboration.” Reflecting on the new album, he added: “Firescorched is probably the most extreme, fast, and yet, experimental album in Sadist’s career. Being privileged to have a great team by our side, definitely makes us extremely happy.”
SADIST was formed on January 29, 1991, and is renowned for their progressive death oriented productions ‘Above the Light’ (1993), ‘Tribe’ (1995) and ‘Crust’ (1997). SADIST split up after releasing ‘Lego’ (2000) but reunited again in 2005. Thereafter the group released a self-titled album ‘Sadist’ (2007), followed by ‘Season in Silence’ (2010), ‘Hyaena’ (2015) and ‘Spellbound’ (2018). Their compositions involve heavy usage of guitar and keyboard solos, with jazz and Middle Eastern influences.
