"Sadred is named after the King of all Koi, the huge carp in one of the reflecting pools at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens (bonus points if you've seen him before!). And just like that aquatic motherf***er, this band can be delicate, intimate, calming, and then BAD AS HELL when they want to be. "Oh sure, there's lots of ambient improvisation, irregular meters, balanced counterpoint between instruments, and guitars trickling around clarinet lines while drumsticks tickle snare and cymbals, I won't deny it. Sadred's full of accomplished musicians, and they accomplish all sorts of stuff whenever they feel like it. But sometimes they'd rather punch you in the face. With a glorious power-chord-cymbal-smash- "these go to 11" sonic punch, that is. It's a metaphor. A metaphoric punch to your own, actual, non-metaphoric face. Got it?" -Fringe Underground ps. Our other album is out of print... but you might be able to find a copy or two on our MySpace page (myspace.com/Sadred) thanks!
