Sadistik Exekution occupies one of the largest positions in Australian metal history, and in reality should occupy a place in world metal history. Here is one of the earliest death metal bands, overlooked for reasons unfathomable to me. Unfortunately, Sadistik Exekution are too good for you for that. While you go listen to your pathetic “technical brutal death metal,” I’ll listen to this album (and the subsequent follow-ups) and know that whatever you listen to, it’ll never be as aggressive, brutal and plain FUKKING AWESOME as this band and their music. Perhaps that’s a good thing, if every person in the world listened to these guys it’d be one mightily fucked up world. I’ve really tried to keep the use of the word “fuck/fukk” in this review to a minimum, but even this, the least chaotic and mentally insane of Sadistik Exekution’s albums invokes such a strong feeling of absolute patriotism in me that I couldn’t help myself. Ultimately though, one thing is fact: This album is forgotten history and this band is fucking awesome.
