Veteran San Francisco Bay Area thrashers SADUS played their first-ever show in Puerto Rico on Friday, November 30 at Dakiti & Café Culebra in San Juan. The group's bassist Steve DiGiorgio (ex-DEATH, TESTAMENT, SEBASTIAN BACH) has since updated his site with the following message:
"In the continuing quest to visit all of Latin America, the chance to play the US occupied island in the Caribbean came up. And just like all our Southern neighbors, we felt welcome and long overdue to bring the 'SADUS Attack.'
"The rain was randomly pounding and the beers were just as watery... but during the brutal sets of the two support bands the fans filled in and prepared to witness the old-school set compiled by these aging Sadudes.
"The enthusiasm was at a high level the whole show even though the bass amp died half-way through, but Señor Luis on the sound board saved the mix with the DI.
"It was a crazy time meeting all the fans after the show and going around to the death metal sidewalk concert at 3 AM.
"I want to thank Alberto, Carlos and Ray for helping us the entire time... herbal thanks go to the multi-talented Hendrix... y sobre todo gracias a todos nuestros nuevos amigos y amigas de Puerto Rico para un tiempo bueno... and you can trust, we will back!"
The End Records released SADUS' latest album, entitled "Out for Blood", North America in May 2006. The CD was released in Europe in February 2006 via Holland's Mascot Records.
The follow-up to 1997's "Elements of Anger", "Out for Blood" was recorded at Trident Studios in California with producer Børge Finstad (MAYHEM, BORKNAGAR, VINTERSORG, EXTOL), engineer Juan Urteaga and manager Rob Lewis. The album features a guest appearance on one track by TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy.
