I’ve had iTunes on ‘shuffle’ for the majority of the day today, and for whatever reason my computer seems to wants me to listen to old metal. Today tracks from classic Metallica to Priest have popped up and kept my fist pumping and head banging with their infectious groove. Most recently, and what prompted me to put my head thrashing on hold and sit down to type, was a track from Sacrilege’s 1996 album Lost in the Beauty You Slay.
Sacrilege was, or I suppose still is, a melodic death metal band formed in Sweden way back in 1993. Throughout their career they released two demos followed up by two full-lengths, the first of which is Lost in the Beauty You Slay the second titled; The Fifth Season. After loosing members to the ranks of in Flames, Dream Evil, and Night Shade they broke up but later reformed as Sacrilege GBG, re-recruiting some of their lost players. Back in 2006 the newly re-formed band announced a come-back album titled A Matter Of Dark, but so far nothing save a few audio clips have come to fruition.
It’s hard to say if Sacrilege will ever be restored to their previous glory or not but a man can dream. In the mean time I thought I‘d post the track Fettered Shackles of Light off Lost in the Beauty You Slay for everybody’s enjoyment. You can also listen to a few tracks off A Matter of Dark on the bands Myspace page and while you’re there, leave them a comment reminding them there are still some folks wanting an album.
