In many of their outward trappings, Sadokist come across as a crude-and-rude, foul-and-filthy, hell-blazing band of blasphemous barbarians. And yeah, they really are all that. “Evil Sado Fuckin’ Speed Metal of Death!!!” is their mantra, and those aren’t empty words in their case. But one listen to the song we’re premiering today is convincing evidence that these Finnish devils are much more nuanced and diabolically dynamic songwriters than the most superficial trappings might suggest. Their songs are meant to electrify the senses, but a lot of the undeniably high voltage derives from how much they pack into each track.
The song we’re presenting today, “Driven By Disgust“, is one of nine tracks on Sadokist’s shit-hot second album, Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms, which follows 2014’s Thy Saviour’s Halo, Held by Horns. It’s set for release by Hells Headbangers on August 30, on CD, LP, and tape.
