4.5 superbThrashK | December 3rd 11

When not quite as purely insane and flat-out fast as Illusions, the band hasn't
slowed down on Swallowed in Black.

The songs are more diverse and the already good technical level is squared on this one.
There are still mad-fast moments in every song, as there is damn good sounding "slower"
sections, too. Great examples would be tracks Black, Good Rid'nz and Arise, to
name only a few.
Instrument (and vocals) wise there are really no flaws: The guitars range from mid-paced,
memorable riffs to pure crazy ferocity, and the guys are not afraid to solo. Not too wanky
though, the guitar playing IS very technical but fits always the music. Drums are top-notch
too, fast when needed and keeps the mood up be it a faster or slower section. Great variety
there as well. On vocals Travis delivers some very pissed off screams and also compliments
well with the instruments. No need to mention about the bassist, DiGiorgio: Simply one of
the best bassists ever in metal.

I can't think any real thrash/death metal fan could not like this.
Swallowed in Black is one mean piece of thrash taken to extremes in terms of
aggression AND technicality. Plus excellent songs. Get.

Sadus's masterpeice.More agressive more death metal oriented,and more technical than the debut. its kinda sad that most people say this is a slower album than the debut, but i think it is more intense.Black,the blazing opener is MUCH faster than certain death, and so is in your face.Good Rid'nz is easily faster than almost anything on illusons.Plus,the wake probably has the fastest blastbeat the band ever recorded.Most of the songs match the the speed of illusions, while still varying in tempo.This could quite possibly be the fastest/most brutal thrash album ever folks,one of the fastest metal albums of all time.Sadus was among the most technical,agressive and sophisticated of thrash bands.Swallowed in black has much more riffs than bands like metallica released in their entire career.for one to assume that this band is inferior to say, metallica, or any of the big four,for that matter is ignorant. In terms of musicainship, and technicallity, sadus delievers more than anything the big 4 had to offer,pluss they still played thrash fucking metal,unlike metallica.Seriously, half the shit on their first 4 albums wasnt even thrash.Besides they werent even near as technical as sadus. All they are is rediculously overrated.I am sick and tired of people who dismiss this band as average,or not good at all.This band had unbelievable talent, beyond what most had at that time. Screw this Idnuf fool,who probably doesnt even listen to sadus, or real thrash that much. Fuck all you wankers and posers who talk about bands without actually knowing what you are talking about.seriously,some people need to shut up and learn about the genre that they pretend to listen to.Take it from a REAL thrasher,this band is among the best.ATTACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
