The fifth full-length studio album by legendary American Thrash Metal band.
First new album in 23 years! Band's first full-length studio album since "Heal" (1996), marking the longest gap between Sacred Reich's studio albums, as well as their first release with guitarist Joey Radziwill, who replaced founding member Jason Rainey right before the recording sessions began.
Twenty-three years after dropping their last full-length, Sacred Reich are returning in force with the towering "Awakening", effortlessly demonstrating that they remain a formidable force in Metal. Showcasing everything a fan would expect and hope for from the Phoenix, Arizona crew, it is a timeless collection comprised of blistering Thrash, crushing grooves, killer solos and socially conscious lyrics that demonstrate a true understanding of everything that matters most in the world today.
By refusing to compromise the sound they developed early on, Sacred Reich have stayed true to both themselves and their message. With hatred and strife on the rise, they have thrown down the gauntlet to take a stand against the narrow mindedness that’s permeating in America. If there ever was a band that needed to return, it’s them. As an album, “Awakening” lives up to its title in every conceivable way. In both content and form. There will always darkness before the dawn, and Sacred Reich provides the soundtrack to a hopeful future.
Behind a steady campaign of mouth-watering riffs and shout-out choruses, these eight tracks rank among the catchiest that the band have ever composed! Thrash Metal is alive and well, and with their latest campaign, so are Sacred Reich!!
