Sadus - Swallowed in Black (1990)

As much as I love metal, I've always had trouble getting into thrash. I think it's because I've been waiting for bands that offer a bit more than just neck damage (although that is pretty satisfying). Much like how Coroner's "Mental Vortex" was technical enough to keep me interested past the album opener, Sadus's 1990 album "Swallowed in Black" has had me headbanging for the past 2 days. Everything about this album fucking slays. The vocals range from aggressive snarls to inhuman howls, the guitar riffs and solos are absolutely relentless, and the rhythm section drives the songs home like a stake through the heart thanks to stellar drumming and Steve DiGiorgio's fretless bass wizardry. Think Slayer + Coroner + a hint of death metal. A winning combination in my book.

    Mediafire appears to be totally kaput right now, oddly...
