Sabbat Members Talk Reunion

KomodoRock.com recently conducted an interview with legendary UK thrashers SABBAT. In the discussion they talk about their decision to reform for some festival appearances, after being persuaded by CRADLE OF FILTH's Dani Filth. An excerpt follows:

KomodoRock.com: It's been a great weekend, some good laughs, a bit of controversy. How was it when you played, did you have a good time?
Andy Sneap (guitarist): "Yeah it was all right. Our set got moved earlier, which was a bit of a shame."

KomodoRock.com: Was it not very busy when you played?
Andy: "It was all right, obviously a lot of people didn't know that our set had been moved forward by an hour, which seemed like a bit of a dumb thing to do if you ask me, obviously people who had come here to see us, probably missed us."
Martin Walkyier (singer): "And all the other bands they wanted to see that had been rescheduled."

KomodoRock.com: You guys have been around for absolutely fucking ages.
Gizz Butt: "Steady!"
Martin: "We were around and then we went away, and then came back. We're the herpes of heavy metal aren't we!"
Andy: "Yes."

KomodoRock.com: You thought they were gone and then they're there again. So what brought you back, is there a metal revival going on?
Andy: "It was Cradle Of Filth actually, I was producing the Cradle Of Filth album, and Dani was a huge Sabbat fan, and he talked us into it. It was actually my birthday. Martin had come round, and we were having few beers, talking rubbish, and by the end of the night we were booked onto the UK dates of their Christmas tour. So we did that, and then we
did a few festivals this year, nothing out of the ordinary, just doing a few select dates."

KomodoRock.com: More for enjoyment?
Andy: "Yeah totally."
Martin: "Absolutely."
