Arizona thrash metal veterans SACRED REICH have signed with Metal Blade Records. They are writing material for what will be their sixth album and first since 1996's "Heal" for a tentative early 2019 release.

Since its 1985 inception, SACRED REICH has become one of the most revered thrash bands and has continued to carry the torch with European tours, festival appearances, its first U.S. tour in over 20 years, plus its 2012 "Live At Wacken" album. Given SACRED REICH's politically conscious material, today's divisive climate means the band's views are more relevant and vital than ever.

SACRED REICH vocalist and bassist Phil Rind comments: "We are very happy to announce that SACRED REICH have signed with Metal Blade Records and we are writing songs for a new album. Our plan is to go into the studio this summer and have a new record out early next year. We are super excited and can't wait to share some new music with you!"

SACRED REICH recently parted ways with drummer Greg Hall. A replacement drummer has not yet been announced.

One of the founding members of SACRED REICH, Hall was in the band from its formation in 1985 until his initial exit in 1991. He was replaced by drummer Dave McClain for the last two SACRED REICH studio albums, 1993's "Independent" and the aforementioned "Heal", before Greg rejoined the band for 1997's live album "Still Ignorant".

SACRED REICH broke up in 2000 and remained inactive until 2006 when they received offers to perform at European festivals. The have been playing sporadic shows ever since.

Dave McClain re-joins as their drummer, and they will record the album in February, and plan to release it during the Summer.

wow, I haven't heard about this band in years... I'd kind of forgotten about them. I don't know what kind of album we can expect from them 20 years after the fact but I don't just want to write it off without at least hearing it.

Curiously enough, I prefer their work before he initially joined much more than after. If a new Sacred Reich album is closer to that vein, it'll be refreshing to hear Dave really let loose in a way he didn't get to as often in Machine Head.

I really liked McClain's drumming in SR but never found him interesting in MH.

Sadly, Greg Hall was AMAZING on "Ignorance" but nowadays doesn't sound good at all so I see why they had to part ways.

I'm surprised DM wants to come back to this band. Isn't there a FFDP rip off band around that could pay him more?

that's exactly why I am skeptical of a new Sacred Reich- I fear they may be one of those former thrash bands who will turn into a "Five Finger Death punch rip off band" on this new album (and they wouldn't be the first such band to do this either.)

Hopefully SR has learned the lessons of Death Angel and Overkill; people will be lukewarm if you put out some groove metal or butt rock nonsense, but welcome you with open arms if you put out a ripping thrash record.

Sacred Reich isn't exactly known for putting out stellar albums. Ignorance was good, but they all went downhill after that. My guess is they'll try to land somewhere between American Way and Independent.

I don't think SR will go the FFDP route, thankfully. I doubt Phil even listens to that kind of music at all.

They had some samples of the new album posted online when they had another drummer playing with them and it sounded good to me. Not "modern" in style, but only production values. Sounded like late 80s Sacred Reich to my ears and I didn't detect any cringy lyrics which are sometimes an issue with this band. From what I heard before, I will definitely pick up the new album.

I kind of wish they were still playing with the drummer for Triphammer, who was the initial replacement when McClain left IIRC. That guy was awesome.

The album title is Awakening, and it will be released in the Summer. It's produced by Arthur Rizk, who also have worked with Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, among others.

Create a song like "Surf Nicaragua" or "One Nation" again and I'll listen.

But this band was incredibly hit-and-miss, can't expect too much.

Can't be any worse than what these guys put out...

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/ex-exo ... on-ritual/

Quote:
Former EXODUS singer Rob Dukes and ex-SACRED REICH drummer Greg Hall have teamed up with DARK ANGEL guitarist Eric Meyer and bassist Michael Gonzalez to form a new band called BLOODMOON RITUAL. Rounding out the group is guitarist Chris Cannella, currently fronting AUTUMN'S END.

These men have performed on the biggest stages of Europe and the U.S. and delivered records that have become true milestones in the metal world.

With a pedigree like this, BLOODMOON RITUAL promises to deliver a sonic punch that will absolutely decimate the music world.

Dukes joined EXODUS in January 2005 and appeared on four of the band's studio albums — "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" (2005), "The Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A" (2007), "Let There Be Blood" (2008, a re-recording of EXODUS' classic 1985 LP, "Bonded By Blood") and "Exhibit B: The Human Condition" (2010).

Hall announced his departure from SACRED REICH in January 2018, explaining in a statement that he was fired "rather abruptly and by phone."

BLOODMOON RITUAL is:

Rob Dukes: Vocals
Greg Hall: Drums
Eric Meyer: Guitar
Michael Gonzalez: Bass
Chris Cannella: Guitar

That is true. The samples from the SR album with the previous drummer that they shared on Facebook sounded pretty good.

1. Sacred Reich's first two albums and EP (and part of Independent) are magnificent and some of my favorite stuff, childhood favorites, goes deep. I also think The American Way is their best album and I shake my head at those who don't appreciate it. Ignorance is great but also a one-trick pony, TAW was much more varied and I don't mean the (beloved) 31 Flavors.

2. Greg Hall was absolutely fine when I saw them live in 2012. Actually not just fine, he was a fucking monster. Very sad to see him go. And I find his best drumming is on The American Way!

3. New song is a just a hc song, kinda like post-Rocky Suicidal Tendencies, twas OK but nothing special and I almost did not recognise Phil's vocals. I loved his vocals in the past so I am a bit worried.

4. Looking forward to this but as I was not a big fan of Heal I'm also a bit apprehensive if the albums sounds like that.

5. They better fucking bring Stottler to do the album cover!

New song apparently is an oddball, first thing they recorded, it's just to suit the Iron Regan split, the album will sound different. That's what they are saying.

And yeah, it's a hc song, so it's not about the riffs really.

You are 100% on point. I love Ignorance, but The American Way is an awesome record and definitely Sacred Reich's best.

Song was as boring as their other post-Ignorance stuff, but legit cover art at least.

Main riff was good but the pre-chorus was all-around really bad. Drum fills at end elevated it.

That song didn't do much of anything for me at all, and I wonder if the direction the songwriting was taking factored into Greg leaving. Dave's fine here, although an entire album like that would still be a waste.

My expectations for Bloodmoon Ritual are still low, but I'm least slightly more curious now.

Not really feeling Manifest Reality or the title track. There's only eight tracks on the album, so my expectations for the rest of it are quite low.

Only a couple of years ago this band was very adamant against releasing new material. I'm guessing this is going to be another generic ORANGE MAN BAD concept album with worthless platitudes about politicians and the gubberment, with nary a riff to show for it. In all seriousness, no one needed this band back in the studio for any reason whatsoever. There's even Bandcamp pizza thrash outfits that can play more interesting music than anything we've heard from this new album so far. It's a shame though, because that artwork is killer.

Yep. Funny how people try to keep their religious beliefs secret these days.

These new songs have really grown on me. I'm really enjoying this.
