Biography

Artist disambiguation:
1) Sadist is an Italian metal band.
2) Sadist is a Japanese doujin music producer who is affiliated with the Strawhat label.

The beginning of SADIST takes us back to 1991, when guitarist and keyboards player Tommy and drummer Peso start auditioning musicians for a brand new project. These auditions lead to the first band’s line-up within a few weeks. The line-up is completed by bass player Andy and singer Fabio.

Within few months the band was performing original material at local clubs, where they caught the attention of the indie label OBSCURE PLASMA RECORDS’ owner. SADIST’s first EP, “Black Screams”, is released in September, selling over 2500 copies worldwide. Due to the high demand, the American indie label WILD RAG RECORDS rereleases the EP in 1992 in a new three track version.

After having played around Italy and France, singer Fabio leaves the band. The line-up is then reduced to three people, with Andy handling bass as well as vocals. Shortly afterwards the band flies to Portugal to play in Lisbon having a fantastic reaction from both audience and locale media. The feedback on the SADIST live shows is enormous. As a result, NOSFERATU RECORDS signs SADIST for two albums. The recording sessions of the first record start in January of 1993, and within few months the debut album “Above The Light” is out, having a huge impact on the underground metal scene.
