Sacred Reich Announce New Album and Share Debut Single “Awakening”


Ready for your first look at Sacred Reich now featuring ex-Machine Head drummer Dave McClain? Here it is! The long-running thrash outfit has announced their new album, Awakening, and shared the title track from the effort together with a performance music video.

Awakening will be Sacred Reich’s first full-length release in 23 years, which is the exact length of time McClain occupied the drum throne for Machine Head (the drummer on Sacred Reich’s last release, Heal, in 1996? Also Dave McClain!). Coincidence?? Maybe his return was just the shot in the arm the band needed to finally push forward with new music. The band welcomes Joey Radziwill on guitar this time around, too, and at only 22 years of age his youthful energy likely played a role as well.

Awakening comes out August 23rd via Metal Blade Records; pre-order here.
