SADIST debuted some of its new material live during the Italian Gods of Metal Festival in Milan, Italy on March 21. This event was the first of many European festivals SADIST is going to take part in during the spring/summer of 2010.
SADIST's self-titled comeback album was released in 2007 via Beyond Productions.
Formed in 1991, SADIST split up in 2000 after releasing the "Lego" album and later reunited in 2005. Their compositions are said to involve "a heavy usage of guitar solos and keyboard solos, with progressive, jazz and some Eastern influences. Although SADIST are a death metal outfit, the album 'Lego' is a nu metal album with a thrash metal background."
"Sadist" featured a guest appearance by GOBLIN keyboardist Claudio Simonetti, who contributed a special version of the instrumental track "Sadist", which previously appeared on SADIST's 1993 debut album, "Above the Light".
