Melancholic doomsters Sadhak have just released their self-titled debut digitally and on limited edition cassette through Shadow Kingdom Records. The two-track, 18-minute release is limited to 100 copies and available as a special shirt/cassette package. Both songs from the “Sadhak” release may be streamed below as well. Shadow Kingdom’s Tim McGrogan discusses this diamond in the rough:
“In 2006, there was what we feel a groundbreaking doom metal album from a long time underground doom metal band, Warning (from the UK). The album ‘Watching from a Distance’ was a melodramatic earth shattering experience. Shortly after the group disbanded, the act’s mastermind started a new band called 40 Watt Sun, which was a continuation of that sound.
Because both of those bands were still relatively underground, there weren’t too many others jumping ship to play this style because quite frankly it’s not easy to create this sound and style. So now we are thrilled to introduce to you Sadhak from Norway!
This is a side band created by Andreas Hagen from High Priest Of Saturn. We’ve been craving for something like this for a long, long time now and let me say this has certainly hit the spot! What a great start for this group! The sky is the limit now for Sadhak to grow into something truly special. Do NOT miss out on this!”
