I only got few releases which havenít yet featured in Steel Madness. I
really lacked of time in keeping track of SABBATical activities due to my
studies and fuck! I missed some cult stuffs. Time will no longer a problem
because I have all the time needed after this issue is out! -by Syukri
BLOODY COUNTESS Tape

02. Bring The Head Of Satan
03. Bloody Countess
04. Panic In The Head
06. The Egg Of Motley (Madara No Tomago)
01. Children Of Hell

03. Bloody Countess
04. Immortality Of The Soul
05. Long Way To The Beyond
Another re-release of this
tape and this time by Malaysian AFTERLIFE PRODUCTION (own by DEADHEAD Zine
editor). After interviews in Deadhead and a special tribute made by Steel
Madness Zine, we hope the more Malaysian are already aware of the SABBAT.
This version includes 4 bonus tracks which placed on Side Evil. Either these
songs have been released before in HMSS releases, I am not sure.
The other version of 'Bloody Countess' song features Ozny on guitars but no
info on the year this song was recorded. I can only guess it might be
recorded before the SABBAT becomes a trio somewhere in 1986. The next bonus
song, 'Immortality Of The Soul', recorded at Studio S.K. (again the date is
not mentioned) with Samm doing the vocals. 'Long way To The Beyond' is a
live track at Yanta Rockmayhem in 1987 and the last sond 'C.D.E.' is a
rehearsal song recorded in 1986 (with Gezol, Elizaveat and Ozny).
There are also rare footage of the band and some words spoken by Gezol in
cassette sleeve. Only 500 copies pressed and mine #55.

Sabbatical Side A
01. Merciful Forest
Sabbatical Side B
01. Ride Like The Wind
Serial number of this 7" EP
is EHDS002. Probably that means this is the second release in the "Demonslaught"
series. There is "Sabbatical Demonslaught" 7" released by View Beyond in
1999 but other than that, I don't know any Demonslaught prior to this.
The songs are recorded and mixed in 2001 at Studio Light, Witch's Mill
Studio and Ghostrain Studio and mastered at Witch's Mill also in the same
year. The song "Merciful Forest" is the usual SABBAT blacking thrash metal.
However "Ride Like The Wind" is a bit special because the music and lyrics
are composed by GORGON. Just imagine Gorgon's NWOBHM with Gezol's growl or
Metalucifer's music with Sabbat-style vocals. That is how this song sounds
like. Damn interesting!
The EP is white (or cream) colored. The lyrics are printed at the back of
the jacket. Only 999 copies available and mine-numbered 189.

The CD issued by Entropy
Productions in 1995 is now made available again by Entropy/Iron Tyrant.
Limited in 500 copies but not individual numbering. The label mentioned
earlier that they are going to use red color (originally it was in gold
color) as requested by Gezol but I got it in yellow color. I don't have the
1995 pressing so I can't make any comparison beside the front cover which is

SABBAT and ABIGAIL, seems
to be good a pair. Both are great, cult bands for me. Thanks to Jerasak for
releasing this tape (at last a pro-release of ABIGAIL live songs!). Yes,
this tape features live songs from both bands. SABBAT's side was recorded at
Urga (Tokyo) on 5th May 2002 while ABIGAIL's recorded also in Tokyo on 16th
September 2001. ABIGAIL's songs are short and there are only 5 songs so
there are many blank space on the tape.
The tape is released in limited edition of 500 copies (mine #137) and the
cassette sleeve is in the form of foldable (almost the size of...) A4 paper
featuring logos and photos of the bands.
