Our favorite Los Angeles Death Metallers Rick and Bay Cortez are ready with a new release, this time with help from Ernesto Bueno and Arthur Mendiola. That might not give you a big lead, though the Cortez brothers are the creative and leading force in SADISTIC INTENT and Iron Pegasus Records has just released the ‘new’ release “Reawakening Horrid Thoughts” on a 12″ EP, while we still are waiting for the band’s first full length attack “The Second Coming… of Darkness”.
A lot of old Metal heads over at Voices From The Darkside did a review of the release, and quite funny to see how spread the opinions are, though we more or less all agree that the guys are legends! Jump over there to have a good read and buy the record and give it a lot of spins!
The start of my 5 cents: “The slowest working band in the world perhaps, the American Death Metal legends from Los Angeles, is finally ready with a new release, a thing that the hordes of fans of SADISTIC INTENT has been waiting for, for years and years. The last new recording was from 2002, the 7” EP “Morbid Faith” also released by Iron Pegasus Records, the label behind this release as well. We had “Ancient Black Earth” in 2007, though that was a compilation of the band’s previous released material, which of course are quite hard to get hold of, as the band has been going since 1987, and so far only has relased demos and EPs, and a couple of releases that sums those recordings up. When the two men behind SADISTIC INTENT, Rick and Bay Cortez, aren’t busy with writing and recording new material, they are operating their music shop in Los Angeles, Dark Realm Records, they have under that moniker also released a few Metal goodies during the years (first as Gothic Records, and then later Dark Realm), the two were also a part of the rewamped POSSESSED a few years ago, and the new track on this release ‘Malignant Spirits’ was also originally written for POSSESSED, though ended up being recorded and released as hellish dark Death Metal. This 12″ EP consists of three tracks, the already mentioned ‘Malignant Spirits’, ‘Horrid Thoughts’ which first saw the light of day on the band’s first release “Rehearsal ’88”, here in a re-worked and re-recorded version, and then a cover version of everyones favorite Norwegian Black Metallers, DARKTHRONE’s ‘Fuck Off And Die'”… Read the rest over at Voices From The Darkside
