1 stars "Black Screams" is an EP release by Italian technical/progressive death metal act Sadist. The EP was released through Obscure Plasma Records and apparently sold 2500 copies which is quite impressive IMO.

There are two tracks on the EP. Both are taken directly off the "Black Screams" demo tape released earlier that year. Lo-fi sound quality, bad musicianship and everything else not worth mentioning are intact from the demo tape. The EP was actually re-released a second time in 1992 by Wild Rags Records. This time around on tape limited to 2500 copies. The Wild Rags Records tape version of the EP features a bonus track called "Musicians Against Yuppies" which is no better and no worse than the other two tracks.

This is a below average release in every aspect of that term and even with an additional track (which is only available on the Wild Rags Records version) this is still a 1 star (20%) rating, which is the same rating I gave the demo. Itīs not the most promising start from a band that would release some very interesting technical/progressive death metal releases just a few years down the line, but I guess we all have to start somewhere...

UMUR | 1/5 |
