CRUSTCAKE PICKS - NEW CAKE IN THE OVEN: NADER SADEK - IN THE FLESH

Crustcake Picks New Music

by Van Damned (TX)

Nader Sadek - In the FleshWhen a supergroup assembles for long enough to produce a cohesive album, it's an event worth noting. When that album turns out to be an unmitigated success (see recent releases from Twilight, Circle of Animals and Shrinebuilder) it's like a ninth-inning home run: hard-fought and well-earned.

The collective convened under the direction of -- and named after -- Egyptian-born/NY-based visual artist Nader Sadek has hit one of those four-baggers.


Nader Sadek, Rune Erickson

At just inside the 30-minute mark, In the Flesh (Season of Mist) is an all-killer-no-filler sprint through the warped and demented arena of Sadek's mind. Sadek conceived the project -- "an exploration of the human condition as we now find it intermeshed with petroleum," he told Invisible Oranges' Joseph Schafer -- wrote a few riffs and songs, then assembled his team.

Filling out his roster are Steve Tucker (ex-Morbid Angel), Rune Eriksen (aka Blasphemer, Aura Noir, ex-Mayhem) and Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy). Other notables on deck include Attila Csihar and Krallice's Nick McMaster. Pinch-hitting are Tony Norman, of Monstrosity and Morbid Angel (briefly) fame, guitar wizard Mike Lerner (Behold… the Arctopus!) and current Morbid Angel axeman Destructhor.

Given the talent involved and resulting product, you might be tempted to proclaim this the real new Morbid Angel album. You'd only be partly wrong. Tucker's voice and pacing are unmistakable, there's no doubt about it. But Mounier here plays against type, firing lightning-fast salvos of Sandoval-esque blasts, yet reigning in his tendency to over-play everything all the time. Also, Rune's riffs and solos are too fluid and melodic, grounded in icy Norway, rather than the bad acid swamps of Florida or (yikes) R'lyeh. And the sheer technical weirdness exhibited by McMaster and Lerner means that Flesh occasionally freaks out with some elements of mind-warping prog and hyper-speed shred. It's nothing if not its own beast.

Nader Sadek

Performances are rendered in brilliant high fidelity (Sadek, himself, is listed as producer) but it's the little in-between moments of dripping horror and oozing dread that wraps the record in such a deliciously unsettling miasma of fear: the intro; the moaning cello and ghostly vocal chorus of that introduce and bridge "Of This Flesh;" the creaking strings and low-throated overtone chants on "Rusted Skin."

"It's as if the ghosts of petroleum are haunting us -- not only have we exhumed the bodies of the dead, so to speak, but we use them to kill each other," Sadek said.

He may not have played any of the instruments on Flesh, but the man knows death.

My Name is Tammy..I never believed in Love Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster once when i went to Africa to Execute some business..He is really powerful.The woman i wanted to marry left me 2 weeks to our weeding ceremony and my life was upside down.she was with me for 3 years and i really love her so much..she left me for another man with no reason..when i called her she never picked up my calls and she don't want to see me around her…so,when i told the man what happened.he helped me to do some readings,and after the readings he made me to realize that the other man has done some spells over my wife and that is the reason why she left me..he told me he will help me to cast a spell that will bring her back.At first i was skeptical but i just gave it a try…In 5 days,she called me herself and came to me apologizing..I cant believe she can ever come back to me again but now i am happy she's back and we are married now with lovely kid and we live as a happy family..Am posting this to the forum incise anyone needs the man.His email address is ebosaherbalremedy@hotmail.com

Message: Reading Jim Kulzer article about a spell caster namely Odumodu was, i will say the best that ever happen to me this year based on the fact that i had a lot problem that i was trying to over come.I had problems at home which affected my work greatly. I was now always in a cross fire with my boss.I really don't want to tell story here so i guess i would just go strange to the point on what i have to say.My wife wanted out of our marriage for no just reason.We were married for four year and i think we were happy though we had no kids, it was her idea not to have any cos she wasn't ready to be a mom yet and i was okay with it i mean i didn't like the idea but i went along with it just to please her.It was always like that i mean she always get what she wants.All i wanted was to see her happy i could never do anything that will make her so unhappy.This was all i did wrong that is make her have it her way all the time. I mean that was the reason she gave during our therapy session.She wanted out of the marriage cos i was to nice. From what she said, i was the kind of man ever woman will die for but she wanted a real man to enforce his will no her meaning was i was to week a man for her.And that was the least of therapy session we had cos like she said we where wasting our life together and no amount of therapy was going to get us back together.I was a total mess thinking of how i was being dumped based on how much i loved my wife and how good i treated her,I really didn't know if she was ungrateful or just confused about what she wanted that is mid-life crisis but the bottom line is that she left me and who knows maybe for another man.I was still in love with her, she was the love of my life and i still wanted her to come back that was when i saw Eva-Yolanda article on Odumodu.When i contacted him he made me known that i will have to go through all the spell casting process.Like he said most people are too scared cos of trust issues.I had trust issues, but getting my wife back was my ulterior motive and from my experience with Odumodu i can tell you he is 100% truthful and honest with his customer.I was asked to get some material to prepare the spell and after which he sent me a package contain the spell and the rest just happen the way it was suppose to happen i got my wife back and she was my wife back again i mean she was not that woman who wanted a hard man she was woman i fell in love with who loved me cos i am me.If you want help or fell he can help contact him with his email address drodumoduspellcaster@gmail.com.....
