Veteran San Francisco Bay Area thrashers SADUS have entered Trident Studios in Pacheco, California to record their fifth, as-yet-untitled album for a late summer release via Mascot Records. The band are currently working at Trident with producer Børge Finstad (MAYHEM, BORKNAGAR, VINTERSORG, EXTOL), engineer Juan Urteaga and manager Rob Lewis. The follow-up to 1997's "Elements of Anger" will be mixed at Finstad's own Toproom studios in Norway. Photos from the studio as well as a diary of the recording sessions are available at the Valley of Dry Bones fan site.
SADUS bassist Steve DiGiorgio, well known in the scene for his work with DEATH, TESTAMENT, AUTOPSY, VINTERSORG and many others, has confirmed plans for a SADUS DVD, the release of which will coincide with the upcoming CD.
"We have big plans for the album, a lot of songs and maybe a couple of covers, cool packaging and intense art," DiGiorgio explained. "Also a DVD to go along with the release, including footage from the making of the new songs, studio shots, personal and candid moments, and hopefully enough live footage from recent and shows past to cover a long couple of decades."
SADUS recently took part in the NW Deathfest in Seattle (check out photos here) and are scheduled to perform at the Minneapolis Mayhem 2 festival, set to take place on May 6-7 at Star Central in Columbia Heights, Minnesota.
