Upcoming Releases

Late contender for one of the best damn releases this year? Quite possibly.

Late contender for one of the best damn releases this year? Quite possibly.

Nader Sadek is an Egyptian-American artist living in New York who has a band of the same name. We reviewed his 2011 debut (and only) album In The Flesh favorably when it came out and even posted up his reworking of a song he did from the record this year! Sadek's music is incredible, but there's not too much of it floating around out there unfortunately.

So it's exciting to hear the news that he'll be releasing the four-track EP The Malefic: Chapter III this winter! The album will technically come out in November since it will be a free insert in that month's issues of Decibel Magazine (#122), Terrorizer Magazine in the UK (#254) and Legacy Magazine in Germany (#94) and then see a digital release in December.

The album will feature Cryptopsy drummer Flo Mounier, Aura Noir guitarist Rune Eriksen as well as ex-Death collaborator and guitarist Bobby Koelbele, and the terrifying voice of Cattle Decapitation's Travis Ryan. According to Metal Underground, who got the drop on the record, the EP is a conceptual piece that signifies the end of a trilogy.

"The album concept conjures an unknown time and place from which God has withdrawn, and even his arch-nemesis has resigned from his post due to inactivity, stranding all souls in Limbo. In order to rescue his loved ones, and all the souls of humankind, from this limbonic afterlife, a nameless protagonist journeys to the sacred mountain of the divine. Convinced by the righteousness of his mission, he believes that his enthronement on the divine mountain will release all souls to eternal bliss.

Yet blinded by his own arrogance, he realizes only too late that he has reactivated and occupied the throne of the devil, condemning all souls, even those of his family, to an eternal inferno. Chapter III signifies the final act and conclusion of the story, which is set to be re-released as a graphic novel in the future along with Chapters I & II."

In the meantime, enjoy some Nader Sadek!
