Re: Post your shirt! I think Apoc meant that you guys were getting this thread off topic with your post conversations. Heh. I'm hoping my shirt will be here in the next week or so, since mine was sent around the same time as Apoc and Zyggie's. Silly international shipping.

So did you get a PM or something then?

Re: Post your shirt! And here is the picture. My talent with photography is negligible...IMG_3138CROP.JPG[/attachment:26w7ky6c] Of course this is also too big. But then my camera was running out of battery as well...

Re: Post your shirt! So...I haven't been on here in a while (clearly for anyone who may recall any previous post of mine). What's the deal with the shirt? Is there some kind of posting quota and we get a freebee or is it just 'hey, purchase one and you'll be cool beans'? Also... I don't know when this forum went all superstar and started networking with Nuclear Blast but well done. That's super! Anyway, somebody clue me in please..

Re: Post your shirt!

Lets see some photos guys! It costs a lot to get them made and it would be good to put a face to some names. ;-) Sent from my SK17i using Tapatalk
I think I missed the boat on getting one, but I do have a photo up somewhere on this site, maybe the "Say Cheese" thread?

You DID NOT MISS THE BOAT. The limit is 50 Metal Forum Royalty. We have not reached that yet although we're more than halfway. Just say why you love metal, and then our admin will send you a shirt. I 'missed' the mark too and I still got my shirt! Besides, you're one of the top posters so you should definitely get a shirt. And our admin needs to make you Metal Forum Royalty. You should have been given that title when you reached 100 posts.

    • 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!
