Sacilegia are a band from Dublin, Ireland that plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "The Triclavian Advent" which will be released in April by Invictus Productions.
A very heavy and old school thrash influenced sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the music also bring in a great amount of blast beats. Vocals are mostly demonic sounding blackened metal screams along with the music also adding in a great amount of 80's and early 90's influences as well as keeping a more modern touch.
Dark sounding melodies can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the solos and leads are done in a very chaotic yet old school extreme metal style. Throughout the album you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
As the album progresses melodic guitar leads can also start being heard in certain sections of the recording along with one track being an Armoured Angel cover as well as some of the riffs also utilizing tremolo picking at times. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Sacrilegia are a very great sounding blackened thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beyond The Fouler's Snare" "On Herding Of Swine" and "Unheeded Warnings". 8/5 out of 10.
