“Hyaena” is the new, long-waited album of Progressive Death Metal legends SADIST. Produced and mixed by Tommy Talamanca at Nadir Music Studios in Genova, Italy, “Hyaena” is a compelling mix of the band’s traditional Death Metal and Progressive influences with ethnic and tribal sounds, centered around an intriguing concept about one of Africa’s most fascinating predators, whose legend says is ridden by the devil. The album features a very special guest appearance by percussionist Jean N’Diaye, who will also follow the band on stage on the next tour, and will be available starting from October 16th on Scarlet Records.
Today SADIST have unveiled the album cover artwork and tracklisting, check them out below.
1. The Lonely Mountain
4. The Devil Riding the Evil Steed
5. Scavenger and Thief
6. Gadawan Kura
7. Eternal Enemies
8. African Devourers
9. Scratching Rocks
10. Genital Mask
This is without any doubt the band’s most mature, diverse and experimental album to date, in which every detail has been meticulously looked after, musically and visually (the beautiful front cover by painter Luca Orecchia and booklet design by Alex Del Bono are both top notch). The videoclip for the first single ‘The Lonely Mountain’ will be released soon.
