Re: Sheet! What happened was This First, two bombs went off in the government quarters of oslo. 7 dead, many wounded. Than, one of the guys, who was involved with the bombs, dressed up as a policec officer, went out to an island, where it was a summer camp for young politicians, i mean 13-18 or something, and after a meeting to inform the youths what had happened, he stood outside, with the police unfiform, telling the youths to come to him, and that it was safe to go to him, he than proceeded to kill them. After that, he went on a rampage, and killed over 80, probably more, the number of deaths is getting higher every hour, Up in all this, before the first bomb went off, me, my father, a friend of him, and his son were driving home from visiting a friend of my dad. i heard a huge boom, and felt the car shake, we were about 100 metres away, than, we drove closer, and everyone was running frantically around, we rolled up the window, to ask someone what happened, and a lady comes over and shouts this "IT WAS A BOMB, EVERYTHINGS BROKEN, EVERYTHING'S SHATTERED, GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM HERE" So we drove, as fast as we could away, and when we we're not far away, we heard a second explosion... R.I.P, the around 100 people that died today..

Re: Sheet! Man, that's crazy... I can't even begin to imagine what that must have been like for you, especially since you were so close to it. I'm happy that you're okay, but I feel sorry for the people who did get injured/killed because of that attack... It's horrible to think about.

Re: Sheet! What were you doing when you heard them? It's so crazy what happened. Glad your OK. Hope you don't mind but I moved this to 'Off-Topic' as I think its a worth while discussion and everyone should talk about it if they want. Extremist Christians... Black Metal fans will have a field day over this. It over shadows church burning! Horrible. And Oslo is such a nice place, I would never have imagined something like this. R.I.P. the victims of this massacre.

Re: Sheet! Really glad you're ok apocalypse! Such a shock that something like this happens in Norway... The bombs were bad enough but then that massacre as something out of a horror movie... It's just difficult to grasp.

    • 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!
