One of the band's three classics

"Sadus could do no wrong, it seemed, until after this release. If they'd stopped here they would have been a perfect three-for-three.
Anyway, "A Vision of Misery" carries on somewhat in the traditional Sadus vein (high speed, highly technical thrash with psychotic vocals and very audible, very well-played bass parts), but adds more death metal stylings to the mix. The tempos are more varied - if "Chemical Exposure" blasted along at 200 mph all the time, and "Swallowed in Black" did so 90% of the time, with this album it might be down to 70% or so. Luckily the band is very tight whether going fast or slow, and all the parts are crisply executed. If you like thrash and death metal, this album is for you. Also, the vocals are the best the band ever had - a somewhat Chuck Schuldiner (Death)-esque snarl that is probably easier to take for most listeners than the over-the-top screams on their previous releases.
Buy this one and its two predecessors. But stay away from anything else they released later. Down that road lies madness... well, disappointment, anyway."
Sadus' Final Roadrunner Release is Solid!

"A much more progressive and Death-like Sadus plays on this fine effort which is the Bay Area thrashers third release and last for Roadrunner. The playing here is top-notch but overall this album doesn't feel quite as aggressive as what came before. Regardless, this is still a worthwhile album for any thrasher as well as bass enthusiasts. I owned the original Roadrunner pressing in 2005 but upgraded to the 2006 Metal Mind Poland remaster which has much improved sound and liners."

"I just got my reissue copy of vision of misery and it turned out to be swallowed in black with the cover artwork for vision of misery and the cd print for vision of misery but the data on the cd is swallowed in black. I got screwed good. Get the original issue if you can!"
