To call Vadiat an all-star band defeats the purpose of any album review because it usually triggers certain expectations. Let's just agree that the band knows what it is doing. Take early Asphyx and combine that with a modern sound and Bolt Thrower style vocals and you will get the gist. I especially enjoy the slow and doomy parts of this EP and would love to see more from Vadiat in the future.
Favorite track: Quarter Moon Chaos.
"Old school qualities unbound and run riot throughout. And groove coupled by abrupt whipping pace transformations and a plodding bludgeoning approach are commonplace within tracks which display a surprising spectrum of emotion."
- Cult Metal Flix
In 2018, from the ashes of two Cleveland greats, TERROR & BLOOD OF CHRIST, VADIAT was born.
The members of VADIAT read like an encyclopedia of Death Metal. While Guitarist /Vocalist Brian Sekula's mainstay was Cleveland's legendary Death/Thrashers TERROR, he was a touring member of Mortician in the 90's, and was also an acclaimed Live Sound and Studio Engineer that recorded albums for bands such as Incantation, Nunslaughter, Morpheus Descends, and many others. VADIAT's founding counterpart, drummer Joe Twardizk, was also a founding member of Cleveland's infamous BLOOD OF CHRIST with Decrepit's legendary guitarist, Tom Rojack (RIP). The band is rounded out by second guitar player, Geoffe Hein, who spent time in a number of underground Cleveland acts and recently added bassist, Duane Morris, a Cleveland underground legend, who was a member of Embalmer & Decrepit, and played in stints with Incantation, Nunslaughter, From the Depths, and many more.
VADIAT exist to show all these young upstarts what Death Metal really is. In the spirit of the early days of the genre, the band are here to pay homage to those exciting fledgling days they were once a part of, as well as stand as pillars of what Death Metal should and always will be. No fads, no trends - Death Metal is life to these maniacs!

the chug of Lucifer Triumphant announced to me that Cleric have made themselves known and I paid heed to the signs. This is how I like my Death Metal. It has a catchiness to it but does not compromise on it's savage barbarism. Vocals are otherworldly and full of filth and vehemence. I strongly recommend you waken the beast of Cleric in your world! thravson

Old school Swe-death has never sounded so good! Each song is a portal to the realm of riffs; taking for themselves nearly all of them Sentient Horror have conjured an unmissable death metal album! Arrogant Bastard
