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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
