|SABBAT ANNOUNCES FIRST-EVER US SHOWS.TWO SABBAT ALBUMS REISSUED
UK thrashers Sabbat will be making their US debut this April in select
cities across the country. Featuring producer extraordinaire Sabbat
co-founding member and guitar player Andy Sneap; known for his production
prowess on timeless metal classics by Testament, Killswitch Engage, Megadeth
and Machine Head.
Sabbat is looking forward to delivering old-school thrash to their American
fans. The lineup includes co-founders Andy Sneap guitar, Martin Walkyier
(vocals) and Simon Negus (drums), and is rounded out by Simon Jones (guitar)
and former Prodigy guitarist Gizz Butt (bass).
Sanctuary Records has also recently re-issued Sabbat's 1988 debut, "History
of a Time to Come," and their follow-up, 1989's "Dreamweaver." The two
classic albums are available now.
Formed in Nottingham, England in 1985, from the very beginning it was
recognized that Sabbat had a special kind of talent. Disillusioned with the
state of British Heavy Metal, which for several years had become
increasingly more commercial and predictable, the band endeavored from the
outset to provide metal fans with music of the quality and originality that
they personally would like to hear.
Too technical to be dubbed mere thrash, too thought provoking to be labeled
black metal, Sabbat are their own masters. Their sound is built upon the
blackened fury of early Venom, the chaotic orchestration of Mercyful Fate,
and the razor riffing of classic Metallica, Exodus and Slayer.
After splitting up in 1990, with Walkyier leaving to form Skyclad and Sneap
concentrating on production, Sabbat reunited in 2006. The band has most
recently opened for fellow Brits Cradle of Filth, and played several
European festivals in 2007.

April 13th - BB King's - New York, NY
