For the first time in Australia and New Zealand, the Japanese pioneers of unholy black fire metal - SABBAT!
"The history of Sabbat is entirely unique within the underground metal scene. No other band rivals Sabbat in terms of longevity, consistency, and dedication... Influenced by more sinister strains of underground heavy metal and decidedly evil and Satanic imagery, Sabbat endeavored to push metal to its logical extreme and, as a result, Sabbat is among those few bands that ushered in the first wave of Black Metal..." - nwnprod.com
