Origin: [See Sabbath.]
Sabbat are a thrash metal band from Nottingham, England, currently consisting of Martin Walkyier, Andy Sneap, Simon Jones, Gizz Butt and Simon Negus. Over the years Sabbat have released three studio albums, four demos, two split singles/compilation albums, two singles and a live VHS. In 1988, the band released their debut album History of a Time to Come, which earned them further recognition. Their next album, Dreamweaver was also critically acclaimed. Shortly after the release of Mourning Has Broken, tensions with the band began to surface, most of them revolved around money. This resulted in Sabbat breaking up. After an attempted reunion in 2001, which was blocked by Sneap, the original Sabbat lineup reunited in 2006, and in December of that year, performed together for the first time in sixteen years at four different venues in England. The band have continued to perform at many live venues and festivals around the world since then, but have not released any new material.
