about

Finnish death metal is known for its quality, and SADISTIK FOREST are another band to testify to that fact. They're gnarlier than their contemporaries and play a mix of death metal that not only pays homage to the genre's greats but also fuses the sound in a way that's refreshing and also powerful. Guttural vocals by ex-HOODED MENACE member soar over the music that borrows elements from doom as well as black metal and yet remains distinctly death metal in its sonic output. Pulsating and heaving like an anguished monster, SADISTIK FOREST's music rampages over the course of 35 minutes, leaving you beaten down, sore, and asking for more.

About the album, the band says, "With 'Morbid Majesties' our goal was to write a rhythmically and musically more diverse record. There were maybe some drumbeats and rhythms that had become a trademark for us, or something like it. Now we tried to avoid the easy ways out and challenge our songwriting a bit more, maybe. That added with our best production to date, the results should speak for themselves. Lyrically it is an album loosely based around the misconception of man that we are in some way important. That there would be a greater plan for our existence. Yet, there are factors we can do nothing about. Let's call them the morbid majesties - time, chaos and death, each of them capable of altering the course of our lives in a second. When you think if them for a while, you're bound to feel small again."
