"What a journey it has been. Ok, technically speaking, this isn’t their first proper full-length—Burial Dimensions is. Although Burial Dimensions was recorded in 1994, it remained unheard in the vaults until seventeen years later and was finally released as a stand-alone album in 2016. Despite an initial short run, Sarcasm produced no less than six demos and went through some drastic stylistic changes in the process, starting with a quite basic gore ’n’ guts death-metal sound only to end up with some epic and melodic mix of black and death-metal. All of this over the course of only four years…so there was an unfinished-business vibe in the air. No one thought it would take the band over two decades to make it a reality. "After a first, short-lived reunion in 1997, a newly redesigned line-up of the band finally got together in 2015 with Heval, Oscar Karlsson (Defleshed, Gates Of Ishtar etc.) on drums who had previously played in the band in between 1993 and 1994, former axeman Henrik Forslund now on bass, Fredrik Wallenberg and newcomer Peter Laitinen on guitars. But as they were getting ready to work on some new music for their forthcoming sophomore album, tragedy struck with the unexpected death of Oscar, whose hard-hitting yet extremely precise style had become a massive part of the band’s identity. After few weeks of disarray, the band vowed to carry on, enlisting the veteran Matte Modin (also from Defleshed, Dark Funeral, Firespawn and so on) who actually was part for a while of Embalmed, Wallenberg pre-Sarcasm band. Eventually, both Wallenberg and Forslund had to bow out right before the recording, to be replaced respectively by Anders Eriksson, who had previously been part of the band during the Burial Dimensions era, and Jonas Söder. Amazingly enough this doesn’t prevent Within The Sphere Of Ethereal Minds to be a defiant triumph. Actually, it feels as if all those setbacks and personal struggles only strengthened their will to recapture Burial Dimensions blazing stand and run with it even further." —Olivier Badin
