Tue, Mar 15 2011: NADER SADEK
Latest release: "In the Flesh"
Release date: Mon, May 16 2011, US Tue, May 17 2011
On next May 16th (one day later in North America), Season of Mist will release the debut album of NADER SADEK in collaboration with Greyhaze Records. So far Egyptian-born artist Nader Sadek was mostly known as the designer responsible for the stage imagery on MAYHEM's 2009 US tour, but he decided to delve deeper into the Metal world by forming his own project. He thus teamed up with Rune Eriksen (AVA INFERI, AURA NOIR, ex MAYHEM), Steve Tucker (ex MORBID ANGEL) and Flo Mounier (CRYPTOPSY) to create a Death Metal project under his own name.
The artist recently made a comment about "In the Flesh", NADER SADEK's debut: "We created a monstrous machine of an art piece that I believe will shock the senses and open people's minds. The hybrid of influences is by far one of the most unique works to have come out in recent memory. Flo's attack resembles machinery inside a tank on a battlefield, while still being able to lucratively reproduce the sound of hive of knives swarming and tearing skin to vapor. Each hit and bang is strategically and intelligently placed. Building on top are the mind bending guitars of Rune, which quickly stab razor-like, shredding the inner layers of the skin with palm muted aggression and psychopathic minor chords, creating a sculpture of flesh and metallic bone. Flowing into the bloodstream of this skeleton immortal life is injected though the burning voice of a god, Steve performs with aggression and anger unheard before. I am truly proud of this creation and grateful to my new brothers. I cannot wait for it to be unleashed onto the world!"
"Being part of this first album was something amazing!", drummer Flo Mounier adds. "It's always great working with professionals to create music that's new and different. Rune, Steve and Nader have become good buddies in the process and we look forward to writing new stuff under the Nader Sadek name. That fact that all our backgrounds in life and music are so different enables us to create uniqueness!"
