|Strong live attitude and deep focus on the composition is the best definition of the modern thrashers Sawthis, an incredible quintet on the edge of the Italian metal scene.Sawthis attack this year’s back end with their fourth album (Fusion 2006, Egod 2010, Youniverse 2013) uniquely titled Babhell, it’s a fast-paced powerful release to match a band that’s renowned for their hard work ethics and live onslaughts who have previously shared the stage with the likes of Korn, Sepultura, Children of Bodom, The Haunted, Lacuna Coil for dozens of incendiary shows and collecting many sold out shows all over Europe, UK and Russia!
Impressive atmosphere, crushing groovy riffs and intense melodies make Babhell no doubt the best album of the band. Harmonic elements combined with an instinctive, direct and nervous approach generate an attentive and intimate listening. Rage and happiness, resignation and reaction, love and hate live together into the sound of Sawthis, a multi-emotional status that generates Babhell.
This “multi-emotional chaos” is like a crowded square where each person is busy to express their views but without listening, a square where even the most beautiful point of view is confused into the total chaos. Ultimately in a world where everyone is talking and no one is listening, the dialogue is impossible and the thoughts become just noise like a Babel, a hellish Babel: Babhell.
Sawthis has something for everyone: these songs are well put together enough to keep your head banging and your ears delighted.
