Sadokist - Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms

Finland has this wonderfully depraved blackened death and thrash metal underground. There are all manner of twisted bands rising up from the murk in order to cast out unholy blasphemes. The lo fi and raw magic of the second full length from Sadokist only adds to this pit of primordial evil. Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms is a masterful release, routinely pushing the band towards ever more depraved twists in the myth. Sadokist have gone for the throat with this one, cackling as they drag you kicking and screaming to hell.

Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms fascinates because of its ability to routinely get a little bit more depraved than you thought possible. This is a band who very much ape the first wave of black metal but do it with a sort of bloodthirsty knuckle dragging intensity. One need look no further than the copious spikes in their promo shots to see that this is a band who are enamored with the over the top magic of back metal. Tracks like 'Orgy or Crime' build on this attitude of carefree destruction. It makes for compelling listening from a band who seem to revel in the fact that every song feels like it's about to fall apart.

Sadokist are a fun listen if you are into their brand of Satan worshipping blackened thrash metal. Yes at times it's primitive and even borderline silly, but that's sort of why we listen to this music. Sadokist have been honing their take on this type of music since 2007 and Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms stands out as another gem in their crown. Certainly a record worth multiple listens and one that shows these guys will always be enamored with the spit in your face magic of metal, fans of Hells Headbangers will not be disappointed.
