THERE'S NOTHING GOOD HERE TO EVEN ATTEMPT TO POINT OUT ANY POSITIVES!

He's trying to make up for being so "unhelpful" earlier. :D

...BTW I would like to apologize for any distress the video post may have caused anyone; I did warn you, but I still feel somewhat responsible.

Each to his own I guess.

 

I'm not trying to be an annoying and contrary arsehole every time you say something might be Nu-metal, but to me they seem more groove-metal/thrash/metalcore (depending on album or song).

Have at it Dude, not a problem. Thrash is the only term there that means much to me and I'd guess this was not so much a thrash album, it's the album Sacrament as it happens. Go ahead and tell me it is thrash if you want, I will totally not take it personally.

That was a Lamb of God album in case anyone has lost track. shit is moving pretty quick in the nu-metal thread these days so try  keep up sports fans.

 Cool. I think I'd be making a pretty bad case trying to say that Sacrament is thrash, I think It's more groove metal. Some of the stuff on Ashes Of The Wake was more what I was thinking of when I said thrash.

It's really unusual to see something that misses the mark to that extent taken so seriously by the people doing it. Everything about those two vocalists is hilarious. Their 'dancing' will haunt my dreams tonight and forevermore.... 

And yes, the nu-metal forum is doing well these days, isn't it!

Funny, I thought that video entry would have done it, but it seems to have breathed a sort of unhallowed and stuttering life into the thing instead. 

The singers should be used for bacon and smoked hams, The drummer I'm afraid will only be useful if ground into sausage, the douche on the keyboards is riddles with worms and need to go on the compost pile. Only the bass players has on ounce of cool.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
