Sacred Reich – Awakening (2019) As a dog person, I’ve had quite a few canine companions over the decades.
The ones that I have been closest to are the faithful ones, the ones with a bit of mongrel in them, can be assertive when it’s needed and were true to type – no great changes in personality and you could rely on them. The one that stands out was a Jack Russell terrier. He was strong, robust, loyal and one day put a 5 foot goanna at my feet. He took care of business when it was needed and supportive when that was needed. More about that later. Sacred Reich: Awakening. When political times start to get ridiculous, artists tend to stand tall and hold a mirror to all that is going on.
Punk led the way in the 70s and early 80s before thrash and hardcore took over, then crossover thrash arose, blending the best of both musical worlds with acts D.R.I., Suicidal Tendencies and RKL creating waves and asking questions. Then from Arizona came Sacred Reich. Generally more forthright in their lyrical approach, they pulled less punches and showed how with the right approach open people’s eyes.
The only problem with that is that the general music consumer isn’t interested in being told directly what is wrong with the world, meaning they never managed to achieve the same kind of infamy as some of the previously mentioned bands and the band drifted away and eventually went on hiatus as political times changed. Times having now gone full circle, politics seems to have gone mad again. AFTERLIFE ZINE - Sacred Reich Awakening Metal Blade...
ALBUM REVIEW: Sacred Reich – Awakening. What is it with thrash bands coming back from the grave and sounding even better the second time around?
I’m reminded of bands like Exodus and more recently, Exhorder who while were great back in the 80’s, just absolutely slayed it with their comeback material. Some may disagree but there’s no denying the power of these bands when done right and one such band who has returned with their first new album in over 2 decades is Sacred Reich with “Awakening”. The album title is quite fitting in the times we live in but also from the band’s personal point of view with their return from hiatus releasing new songs. It’s been a long time coming, 23 years and counting but it’s been worth the wait after going through these songs. Ex-Machine Head drummer Dave McClain rejoins the band along with a slightly different lineup including new blood from guitarist Joey Radziwill with original frontman Phil Rind leading the way resulting in a fun thrash metal record.

Obviously, with heavy metal being fifty now, there are a lot of acts out and about engaged in the nostalgia business.
Some choose to trot around playing only the ‘hits’ from their ‘glory’ days, offering nothing new but guaranteeing a good, risk-free time and that’s fine. Others choose to try and show how ‘down with the yoof’ they are by updating their sound to something they think is modern and then mangling their old songs to try and fit their idea of what’s hip… which is very risky and obviously not so good.
