We figured it’s about time to give you a little update on the happenings in the SADISTIC INTENT camp. Guitarist Rick once more supplied a couple of news for you: "As far as the record, it has been delayed because Bernie (Versailles – producer) has been busy with ENGINE. We’ve been averaging like two days a week and currently we’ve been out for over a week and expect to get back in at the end of the month. I wish I could snap my fingers and have it done but it does not happen that way. Perhaps you are wondering why not finish at another studio, well, we simply can’t afford it. Bernie gave us the best deal by far. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining Bernie, I’m just mentioning some of the reasons for the delay. Moving along, I wanted to let you know about a rough mix we sent to Necropolis Records. We still have to EQ the guitars and the overal mix so it’s gonna get better. I personally didn’t want to release it but Necropolis really wanted a sample and now it’s up on there web site available for download. You can check it out if you’d like at necropolisrecords.com/index.html." Needless to say that the rough mix already sounds extreeeeemely promising, so make sure to give it a listen!
