Sacrilegia are a band from Ireland that h as been featured before in this zine and plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2022 ep "Sold under Sin" which will be released in September by Invictus Productions.
Dark soundscapes start off the ep before going into a heavier thrash metal direction while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams.
A lot of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 80's and early 90's while also mixing in a more modern day aggression. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain very true to a melodic yet old school style along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the whole recording on sticks to a heavier direction, all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and spoken word parts can also be heard on the closing song.
On this ep Sacrilegia remain true to the blackened thrash metal style that they have established on their previous release. the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Anti Christianity and Nihilism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sacrilegia and if you are a fan of blackened thrash metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cimmerian Dawn" and "The Squirming Hyperions". 8 out of 10.
