SABBAT - Mad Gods and Englishmen LP BOX
If the post-NWOBHM era threw up very little from the UK metal scene that could scare the world, then Sabbat were a shining, scarifying exception. From Nottingham, they were brave enough to ditch the cliches, and try a little experimentation and individuality in a music style that seemed, at that point, to be predicated on the obvious.
After two well received demos, Kerrang! magazine coverage and a session on BBC Radio 1’s, Friday Rock Show they signed to Noise Records where they produced two landmark albums of their unique, Pagan thrash metal; ‘History of A Time To Come’ (1988) and ‘Dreamweaver’ (1988). The writing duo of vocalist and lyricist Martin Walkyier combined with the song-writing prowess of guitarist Andy Sneap (now a producer in his own right and guitarist in Judas Priest) were ahead of their time and created two of the most significant albums of the late 80’s.
