The band name was suggested by friend Rick Rogers back in 1985. As stated by bassist Steve DiGiorgio: "he liked the sound of it and he said he could make it into a cool logo. So we chose it [...] it's not supposed to have a meaning as we don't stand for anything."  References to the novel Dune were proved wrong, although Rogers may have been inspired by it.

California's Sadus ripped the Thrash scene a new asshole back in 1988 with their self-released frenzy 'Illusions', (also later released via Roadrunner) being technical and bluntly single minded all in one.
After the all out war of 'Ilusions' had bamboozled the mind with its precision pistol whipping, it came as a shock to discover that Sadus were committed stoners.
From mellowing out, these four lunatics seemed to tune-in to their respective abilities still further when ridin' high.........and maybe the relaxed vibe they enjoyed made them so distinctive, so out there, so incessentantly fast and to this day, so prime an example of Thrash Metal's ability to vocalise knife-edge aggressive perfection.
SADUS came together as a quartet in 1984 of vocalist Darren Travis, guitarist Rob Moore, bassist Steve DiGeorgio and drummer Jon Allen, although it was to be two years until the first fruits of this liaison came into being with the 1986 'D.T.P.' ('Death To Posers') demotape.
Quick to capitalise on this achievement SADUS stuck their hands in their pockets to self finance the debut album pulling in METAL CHURCH guitarist John Marshall as producer.
SADUS was put on ice for 1991 as DiGeorgio opted to assist DEATH for their 'Human' album.
