Beware, because we discovered one of the most surprising and exciting Italian bands of the last years!
Sado is a side-project by some of the members of the renowned band Arcansiel.
But this project is miles away from the easy-listening neoprog sound of this band, as Sado lies somewhere in between the more aggressive spirit of Area (especially for what the stunning vocal experimentations by Boris Savoldelli are concerned), the happy nonsense of Picchio dal Pozzo and some weird and spacey psychedelia.
Now just add the genial deconstruction of a few famous tracks and the mix is perfect!
We know, avant-garde can be pretty boring, so Sado’s intense, dramatic and iconoclastic progrock is a welcome breath of fresh air. Highly recommended. Papersleeve edition.
