Sadistic Messiah - High Voltage Demons Award winner

Sadistic Messiah
High Voltage Demons
by Craig Rider at 16 January 2020, 11:17 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: SADISTIC MESSIAH; signed via Thrash Or Death Records, hailing from Brazilian grounds - performing Speed/Thrash Metal, on their debut album entitled: "High Speed Voltage Demoms" (released 18/10/2019).

Since formation in 2018; the duo in question have only this here debut album in their discography so far entitled: "High Speed Voltage Demons", 9 tracks ranging at around 33:44 - opening up with an "Orion" style melody from METALLICA's infamous album "Master Of Puppets". Until the real carnage begins with the menacing titular track itself; conveying amplified adrenaline, boistrously bouncy chugs & flamboyantly frolicking gallops. Demonstrating a blistering barrage of frenzied guitar hooks, gnarly chaos & rhythmic mayhem. Harmonized into a deadly yet monstrously monolithic rampage of rivetingly meticulous foundations, forged into a borderline fretwork of punchline tightness. While revolved around a meaty slab of bulldozing firepower, vehemently trailblazing versatility & speedy savagery.

Consisting of the Angelcorpse on vocals/eletric guitar; the frontman executes a groovy distinction of high-pitched raspiness, rawly rough snarls & throaty screams that showcase profusely robust malignance. Salubriously subjugated with blood in the voice, which pursuits with organic substance & mighty ruthlessness. "Antichrist Plague" is a typical KREATOR-esquire elementation; implementing an experimental embellishment of rapidly swift nimbleness, creatively dextrous dynamics & diligently detailed finesse. Energized into a sonically seamless ritual, while manifesting primitively momentous pandemonium. Rhodz on the dissected strings of terror (which I assume is the bass) injects infectiously audible thumpiness to the sound production, pulsating with quirky snappiness & vibrantly vicious potency - especially in the "Earthshaker Nightmare".

"Die By Witchcraft" is a hardened belter; constructing a healthy dose of outrè panache, quintessential virtuosity & thunderously steely precision. Rambunctiously hammering into a battering grind, fabricating a consistent furnace that rises with sinister vocal patterns while flowing into a consistent amalgamation of Jeff Walker from CARCASS & Mille Petrozza from KREATOR - culminating his own unique style that portrays shrieking yet volatile potential. "The Crucifix Slaughter" rips with soaring shreds; roaring with wildly rushing sophistication, and a bombarding dimension of hybrid hostilty. Contrasting razor-sharp riffs, neckbreaking solos & remarkably solid performances that pummel with splendidly perseverence while oscilliating with swinging havoc and an abroit attribute of deadly haste.

"Mastermind Of Insanity" establishes immersive intensities; converging fluidly catchy lacerations, killer jumpiness & stampeding remedies that unleash an evil empowered embodiment of demonically blackened instrumentation infused with brilliantly composed Kirk Hammett-esque guitar tempos sounding almost influenced from the "Master Of Puppets" & "…And Justice For All" era. "Victimized" terrorizes souls with venomously scratchy vocalization; scattering with rumbling tones that sound like "Surgical Steel" sound production (CARCASS' latest endeavour), strums that thrash into a massive maelstrom of well-played rebellion. Overall concluding "High Voltage Demons" with the finale epic track: "Sadistic Messiah" which provides memorably captivating chorus sections, more symbolic musicianship & mighty malevolence.

Bottom line; I am compelled to say that SADISTIC MESSIAH certainly outdone themselves here for an explosive debut, and "High Voltage Demons" is an excelling record that has a bunch of replay value that will please your ears with some hellishly extreme noise relishments. Thrash Metal maniacs will most definitely want to check out this headbanging discovery for sure - you do not want to miss this one!
