‘Legendary UK crust/thrash pioneers SACRILEGE have shared a new music video taken from the remastered reissue of their 1985 classic Behind The Realms of Madness. The song, “Feed”, is a bonus track on the reissue and the band’s first new recording in over 25 years.
Now fully remastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Hooded Menace, Obituary) with seven previously unreleased bonus tracks and expanded art and liner notes, the Relapse reissue of Behind The Realms of Madness (due out November 13) is the first-ever authorized reissue of SACRILEGE‘s landmark debut. Behind The Realms of Madness is available for physical preorder via Relapse and digitally via Bandcamp.
SACRILEGE‘s 1985 debut album Behind The Realms of Madness garnered no small acclaim at the time of its release, but has since been heralded as a classic of the era and as a release that was far ahead of its time; artists like Bolt Thrower and Napalm Death have even cited the album as an enormous influence on their music. The band’s 2nd release Within the Prophecy (1987) pushed SACRILEGE further into the realm of thrash metal, earning the band increased credibility and prestige in metal circles. SACRILEGE later moved towards folk and doom with its 1989 LP Turn Back Trilobite, a record that displayed the band’s true versatility and which cemented the band’s reputation for innovation and strong songwriting.
