Biography

Born in 1997 under the name of Anestesia, Sawthis arises from an idea of Michele Melchiorre, Adriano Quaranta and Devis Ercole. Soon the band changes monicker into Sothis. In 2001 the band records “The Seven Lies”. This demo enables them to peep out on the national metal scene for the first time, with interesting responses from audience and press.
in 2002 their second demo “Istinct” is out, a veritable springboard for the band which starts to collect many huge reviews from the national and european press.
They share the stage with many great bands such as: Lacuna Coil, Entombed, Impaled Nazarene, Shaman, Konkhra, Eldritch, Centvtion, Theatres Des Vampires and Undertakers.

In 2003, while “The Seven Lies” and “Istinct” get reissued, the band signs a record deal with the roman Temple Of Noise.
In the April of 2006 their debut album “Fusion” (Edel/ Hardebaran) is out throughout Europe.
8 tracks of modern thrash metal!
This throws the band towards a new massive live activity campaign (this time with Destruction, Anathema, Vader, Sybreed, Impaled Nazarene, Extrema, Sadist, Necrodeath and Assassin).
In 2007 the video of “Beyond The Bound” appears on the web (song extracted from “Fusion”). This first official video is inspired by The Clockwork Orange movie.

In 2009, after changing their name into Sawthis, the guys enter the studio again for the recording of the second full-length named “EGOD”, with the presence of Paolo Ojetti (Singer and producer from the band “Infernal Poetry” (CoproProd.) and live sound engineer for a lot of great artists like: Dismember, Napalm Death, Vital Remains, Sinister, Enthroned, L.A.Guns, Paul Di Anno, T.M.Stevens -Tina Turner, Steve Vai, James Brown-, Carl Palmer –Emerson,Lake&Palmer-, Tony Martin -Black Sabbath-) as artistic producer.
An absolutely international production, a brilliant songwriting and an awesome performance of the new singer: these are the things which make Egod’s musical vision unique.
