BAND SACRIFICE

ALBUM TOTAL STEEL

LABEL RELICS FROM THE CRYPT

OUT Dic 17, 2021


RELICS FROM THE CRYPT, the sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS dedicated to keeping the past alive, is proud to present a vinyl LP reissue of the cult second album of Japan’s SACRIFICE, Total Steel, licensed from Carnal Beast.


From their humble beginnings in 1985 on to their super-cult debut album, 1987’s Crest of Black, SACRIFICE have stood for uncompromising Thrash HM.


Much like Japanese punk takes bog-standard tropes and upends them in unique ways, so, too, did SACRIFICE do such with crossover on Total Steel.


Aptly titled in its dedication to rivetheaded ignorance-is-bliss, Total Steel is a nine-song/46-minute monster which mainlines then-contemporaneous Cro-Mags, Venom, Razor, Carnivore, the UK’s Sacrilege, Nasty Savage, The Exploited, and even early Celtic Frost into something that sounds like all those simultaneously and nothing like ‘em at all.


Amazingly, Total Steel sounds as refreshing today as time-locked as it sounded in 1990.
