The 23 year wait is over! Awakening, the brand new album from Thrash legends Sacred Reich, has dropped today on Metal Blade Records and is available from https://www.metalblade.com/sacredreich/ Accompanying the release of their first new album in over 2 decades is the third video for track « Divide and Conquer »
Awakening has already been met with unanimous praise from the media with Metal Hammer calling it « a steady campaign of mouth-watering riffs and shout-out choruses », Revolver claiming Sacred Reich « prove they’re just as heavy and furious as ever » with « a gritty, sludgy take that pushes the confines of thrash itself for a highly unique and fist-pounding experience. » and Kerrang!stating « while some contemporary maniacs might roll their eyes at the concept of Buddhist thrash, one listen to ‘Awakening’s burly, old-school sound will have them along for the ride ».
Speaking on the highly anticipated release of Awakening, front-man and bassist Phil Rindsays: « We are so excited to share ‘Awakening’ with everyone! We had an incredible time making the record. It was such a fun and positive experience. We hope you can feel it when you listen to the album.
To the fans who have supported Sacred Reich for all these years, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. None of this would be possible without you. We hope you enjoy the record as much as we did making it. See you out on the road!
Peace and love…Sacred Reich«
