Sacrifice- Soldiers Of Misfortune CD on Shadow Kingdom Rec.
SACRIFICE should require no introduction. Formed in 1983, the band became one of Canada’s earliest thrash exports and, over the next ten years, largely defined the sound and style of Canadian thrash metal. In 1990, with thrash hitting its creative and commercial peak – even major labels were releasing it – SACRIFICE released their most mature record, third album Soldiers of Misfortune. The sound of SACRIFICE here is pretty much the same as what came prior, but their attack became more precise and the songwriting allowed the twin-guitar interplay to flourish further. Criminally, the album didn’t reap the same accolades as its two predecessors, but time hasn’t diminished any of its power: SACRIFICE’s legendary trifecta was thus sealed.
No frills, no bonuses, just classic CANADIAN METAL rendered in its original state, SHADOW KINGDOM is honored to reissue SACRIFICE’s first three albums on CD and tape formats. No other words needed: ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY!
