THE SACRIFICED: III ANNOUNCEMENT

The Sacrificed are very happy to announce they have signed on with Roxx Records and Divine Metal Distribution for the release of their highly anticipated third album aptly entitled ‘III’.  ‘III’ will see the band continue to grow and expand upon that signature sound that their fans have grown to love on their previous efforts ‘2012’ and ‘The Da Vinci Hoax’.

The cover art of ‘III’ is very simple, yet very powerful representing not only the title of the band’s third effort, but ‘III’ is a symbol and representation of the three nails that pierced the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. The band has never been afraid of controversy our what the mainstream may think as you can tell from this cover and as you will see when you begin to explore the music and message of this brand new album from The Sacrificed!

With the addition of two new members, Michael Phillips (Deliverance, fasedown) on guitars and backing vocals and Daniel Cordova (Vengeance Rising) on bass, coupled with founding members Eli Prinsen as lead vocalist and Jay Williams on the drums, ‘III’ promises to take the band to a whole new level, both musically and lyrically.

The music on ‘III’ is stronger then ever and continues in a direction that fans of Hard and Progressive rock bands like Symphony X, Dream Theater or Queensryche fans are sure to enjoy. “This album marks a shift into progressive metal, and we’re extremely excited for people to hear it” says Michael Phillips on the musical direction and journey on ‘III’.

Lyrically the words and topics covered on ‘III’ are not for the faint of heart. Covering such topics as The Ark of the Covenant and The Nephilim Agenda the band is not afraid to speak from the heart and tackle some very controversial topics, topics that many of today’s Christian artists shy away from.  Eli Prinsen says “Don’t take my word for it, do your own research, seek the truth through prayer and your eyes will be opened” on the lyrical content of ‘III’. ‘III’ will definitely strike a few nerves, which means this is the release you MUST hear in 2012!


‘III’ is set for release in January 31, 2012 and all pre-orders will receive their copies in advance of the release date, so order yours early! Deluxe Limited Edition packages will go on sale beginning ‘Black Friday’ the day after Thanksgiving exclusively at www.roxxproductions.com and www.divinemetaldistro.com

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
