Sado Sathanas are a band from Germany that plays a satanic and occult form form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Homos Hamartia" which will be released by Naturmacht productions.
The album starts out with dark ritualistic ambient sounds before going into a fast and melodic black metal direction which leads up to dark and grim vocals along with a mixture of mid paced and fast parts while also adding in slower elements at times along with acoustic guitars and synths but mostly sticking to a heavier direction as well as bringing in blast beats at times and high pitched screams and in certain parts you can hear melodic chanting in the background.
As the album moves on the music brings a progressive approach to occult black metal as well as being heavy, dark and atmospheric all at the same time and the vocals also have a melodic tone to them at times without losing the grim approach and you can also hear a great amount of melody in the music.
With each song the band brings to the album they all sound different from each other and at times you can hear the bass guitars along with the music having some very fast and heavy parts in certain sections of the record.
On this album Sado Sathanas bring a very original sound to satanic and occult black metal with their ability to write some fast and heavy stuff while also bringing in a great amount of atmosphere and melody along with progressive and epic elements and this is probably going to be another great highlight of black metal in the year of 2014.
Song lyrics cover the relation and interchanges between rules and freedom, the law(order) and the spirit(Chaos, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound along with most of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Sado Sathanas are a very great original sounding satanic, occult black metal band with a great amount of diversity and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nomos Hamatia" "P.A.N Demonia" and "Codex Diaboli". 9 out of 10.
