“Hyaena” is the new, long-waited album of Progressive Death Metal legends Sadist. Produced and mixed by Tommy Talamanca at Nadir Music Studios in Genova, Italy, Hyaena is a compelling mix of the band’s traditional Death Metal and Progressive influences with ethnic and tribal sounds, centered around an intriguing concept about one of Africa’s most fascinating predators, whose legend says is ridden by the devil. This is without any doubt the band’s most mature, diverse and experimental album to date, in which every detail has been meticulously looked after, musically and visually (the beautiful front cover by painter Luca Orecchia and booklet design by Alex Del Bono are both top notch). The cover artwork, tracklist and a videoclip for the first single ‘The Lonely Mountain’ will be released soon. ‘Hyaena’ features a very special guest appearance by percussionist Jean N’Diaye, who will also follow the band on stage on the next tour, and will be released October 16th.
