Sadistikus - Sadistikus(2014) review

Sadistikus is a new band from Israel, even though they are new, the music sounds as if it was recorded in 1985/86. So, let's think of it as a 1986 release:

After playing for some time in a thrash band called Eshet Lot, Ostry decided to play faster and heavier. What's the result? 3 tracks clocked at 9 minutes, but very well written tracks. Music is very good, well, what you can expect from bands nowadays: hellish vocals, fast guitar riffs(unlike what will be played in 6-7 years from now on). He uses a drum-machine, but that does not irritate your ears(remember that Sepultura didn't even tuned their guitars for Morbid Visions?). Even though it is a demo, you can hear all the instruments without any problems. Atmosphere? Yes, it is evil, this guy was truly dedicated to it

Unfortunately, we are in 2016... If this stuff would be released in 1986, pretty sure it would be hailed by many, and the band cited as influence. Now, I can only say that this is something that is missing at the moment. If you like bands like Sepultura, Kreator, Bestial Death and early Salem check it out. If you want to get a headache... check out the other bands around in the zine!
