SADISTIC INTENT (USA/Ca): ?Eternal Darkness? split 7? with UNGOD (Ger) 1998 Merciless

The band has been around since forever, with one of the most unquenchable fires for Dark/Death Metal burning deep within this genre?s history. I got to know them some years ago with Wild Rags!, at the time of their ?Impending Doom? tape, but dammit, they never stopped one single day to impress me. If I have to signal a band which has THE right style I would point at SADISTIC INTENT, no doubt, they are able to accomplish everything that every black metal band strives for, without the use of screeching squeaking vocals or clownish makeup. Their songs are a poetic weave of Satanic Death Metal and sheer Obscurity in its highest forms. They don?t really lose time in useless guitar evolutions or hyperblasting drumbeats, it?s one of those few rare bands (just like INCANTATION) which has so much class and style that every song they compose is a fucking ultimate classic, even with 3 or 4 notes per riff. This ?Eternal Darkness? is also memorable, characterized by spectral, demonic vocals and a distortion as eerie as it is heavy, almost distorted a la old GRAVE. Should be a lesson to lots of modern bands, you don?t really need anything but the right inspiration to create great songs like this one. Limited to 1000 copies.
