Several years pass and still I have another new
album sitting at my side. Oh how some patterns never grow old! Out For Blood
is the band’s 5th album. Musically, well... the typical progressions
that we also found with bands like Death, Forbidden, Slayer, Nuclear Assault,
etc.... everyone is much better at their helms. Darren’s guitar sound
is much heavier, Steve’s bass playing is out there doing it's thing
up and down the neck, Jon’s drumming is faster and has more life than
the last album. Surprising me the most, though, is the more blatant approach
to song writing. Such examples are "Smackdown", "Sick"
and "Crazy" (no Patsy Cline here!!). The vocals of Mr. Travis
are more brutal than ever, though. This gives such songs the adequate fundamentals
that make Sadus.... Sadus. There are some additional vocals performed by
Juan Urteaga and Chuck Billy (Testament). Anybody that has grown up on Death
or Sadus, grab this disc. To all others, where have you been? Pay attention!!
