Sadist (1991-present): a Thrash Metal band from Italy.
hrough several albums, press support, video support, endless worldwide touring and an unbreakable discipline Sadist has proven that Italy too belongs to the world of Metal.
It all started in 1991 and quickly spread to feature their debut Black Screams 7" EP (1991) on the indie 'Obscure Plasma Records' and was Limited to 250 units. Black Screams (the album/tape) followed in 1992 on the up-and-coming US 'Wild Rags Records' with Above The Light (1993), Tribe (1996), Crust (1997) and Lego (2000) following on different labels with founding members Andy on bass with Zanna (vocals), Peso (drums),Chicco (bass) andFabio (vocals) replacing the incumbents in due coarse; the last recording featuring Andy (bass),Trevor (vocals),Tommy Talamanca (guitar/keyboard). Since the last listed recording, however, the act has gone over a major overhaul with new management, a label change and entirely new line-up featuring Andy back in the fold as well as Tommy - not only on albums, but also live - providing both guitar (with one hand) and keyboard (with the other) simultaneously.
