On the heels of the spineless, cash-grab reissues earlier this year from the infamous parasites at Metal Mind records, Displeased records has finally put out proper re-releases of Sadus' "Illusions" and "Swallowed in Black."
These releases come with liner notes from Steve DiGiorgio, complete, remastered version of the band's first three demos, and video clips of the tracks "Certain Death" and "Good Rid'nz."
Both albums can be purchased at The End Records (http://www.theomegaorder.com/s.nl?sc=10&category=&search=sadus%20illusions
) for $11.99 with free shipping for US customers, and until 9/26, you can receive an 11% discount by entering the "UPTOELEVEN" coupon at checkout.
Some other recommended rarities from TER's catalogue:
Master's "Unreleased 1985 Album" ($11.49) http://www.theomegaorder.com/s.nl?it=A&id=5384&category=&whence=
"Back in 1985 Paul Speckmann and Master signed to US label Combat and recorded a thunderous debut album that same year. Due to irreconcilable differences the contract got torn up, the album was never released and Paul went on with his new band Deathstrike. A few years later, after reuniting Master, the band signed to Nuclear Blast and recorded several albums in the 1990s. Now, almost 20 years later, the original 1985 album recordings are dug up from the vaults to be immortalized! This cult release comes with early '90s demo tracks as a bonus."
SORCIER DES GLACES - Moonrise In Total Darkness ($11.49)http://www.theomegaorder.com/s.nl?sc=10&category=&search=sorcier%20des%20glaces
From the small sampling that I've heard, this is one of two black metal albums—the other being Summoning’s Oath Bound—from the past year that has managed to match the efforts of the movement’s establishing acts; perhaps unsurprisingly, the music was composed only three years removed from the de facto death of black metal (circa 1996) but was released a few months ago because the man responsible for all of the music just recently found the long-lost master recordings and was finally able to get it out into the public.
