Sadism biography

Sadism was formed in 1988. The main idea was to play the most brutal music for those days, Death Metal, but a few musicians were capacitated to do that. At the beginning the founder members (Juan Pablo Donoso and Ricardo Roberts) started under the name of "Black Vomit" being replaced to "Sadist" and finally as "Sadism". Months later they find the people that the band needed, at last Sadism was completed.

The first works as a band were the rehearsals for its debut demo tape called "Perdition of Souls", which included four songs; this was recorded in October 1989. This record sold more than 3.000 copies in Chile as well as abroad. After that, the name and reputation of the band reached a high popularity in the national scene. One year after Sadism got into the studios to its second work "From the Perpetual Dark" (Demo tape with three songs).

As the time goes by there were opportunities from different levels and producers to record a professional work, the debut LP "Tribulated Bells", the result of that was a contract with a Chilean label "Toxic Records". The album was made in 1992, it included nine songs and it was the first Death Metal album in Chile. The promotion was with many shows around the country as abroad.

As soon as possible Sadism began to work on the fourth record, now as a professional band and of course, in a different way, "Darkside" was a very well-realized record, because its sound was raw, dark and stronger than any other band. As a result of years of hard work the members of the band decided to take apart for a while, thing that was longer than a little while. 1994 will be the end of the first part of this story.

1996 was the time to reborn, now the maturity, professionalism and perseverance would rule everything, a new lead guitar (Enrique Zúñiga - who came from "Atomic Aggressor") gave the touch of technique that the band needed, so it began again the way to get the time which had been lost. Now the band had changed its label to "Artaria Records" (another Chilean one), April, May and June were the months of arrangements, rehearsals and practices to carry out the second album, the chosen name was "Deadline Sequences", nine songs which reflected the new band step. "Deadline Sequences" had a big promotion playing with Cannibal Corpse in Santiago in front of an audience about 7.000 persons; it was a proud to Chile the band’s performance. Later other shows came with famous bands such as: Sodom, Kreator and Broken Hope.

A new member on bass (Juan Edo Moore) was the only change for the new record, the third one on its career, "A Dwelling of Gods" was the consolidation abroad, the lp is considered the most professional and the best one. This record includes eight songs, one of them the first cover that Sadism has played ever "Beyond the Gates" of "Possessed" (one of the biggest influence of the band).

Sadism's last production is called "S u m m o n", with ten songs to the old Death Metal style. This work will have a new member on guitar (Javier Menares), the old guitar player (Raúl Salinas) had to leave the band by personal problems. After that, the band has been rehearsing long periods of time to produce a high quality work and material that would be out in mid-2010 and it promises to kick some ass with their incredible and  technical music that they have always played...PURE DEATH METAL ...straight to the veins...! Also they've been playing in different shows in regions as well in Santiago, being the most remarkable shows together with Morbid Angel or Pentagram's reunion. NEW WORK COMING SOON...!
