MTV in the US has decided to bring back HEADBANGERS BALL and the debut hits this Saturday at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT on MTV2. This particular show is being hosted by Metallica along with Iann Robinson doing the news. The news section was shot on location at L.A.’s one and only Dark Realm Records. This is the shop owned by members of Sadistic Intent where bands such as Destruction, Morbid Angel, Dark Funeral, Cannibal Corpse, Mayhem, Cradle Of Filth, Behemoth, Marduk, etc. have done in-store appearances. Headbangers Ball is back so check it out Saturday and get a glimpse of L.A.’s only shop dedicated to Extreme Metal.
It’s been a while since we heard anything new concerning the long awaited debut full length by SADISTIC INTENT, so we figured it would be a good idea to let guitarist Rick tell you the latest updates himself once again: "As far as the recording is concerned, I just got back from Bernie’s (studio) a while ago. I actually re-recorded a couple of my solos on ‘Funerals Obscure’. Back when I first recorded them I had that "producer" telling me to leave certain solos alone, even though I was not satisfied with them. I thought that they would grow on me but they didn’t so I re-recorded them. I have not gone to the studio that much and when I have, it’s only been a couple hours at a time. I’m almost done with all the guitars and then Bay wants to re-record some bass and vocals for basically the same reason I have re-done some of my solos. At the slow pace (on and off) we’ve been going, we should be done with all the tracking by August, then we can finally fix. I’m just a little worried that with Bernie being busy with all his projects (bands and work), perhaps studio time will be more limited. I know it’s taking forever but in the end I believe it’s going to be killer! I wish we were done already!!! When I hear what we’ve accomplished so far, I really enjoy it! I’ll be honest with you, when we first recorded the drum tracks, we had to start over because it just was not up to the standard Bay and I expected. We lost some money back then because we had to re-record the drums but it was worth it! I would have a hard time telling people that I was proud of it, if I was not. Fortunately it’s tight so that’s not the case!"
