SACRED REICH picture
Sacred Reich is a Phoenix, Arizona based thrash metal band that formed in 1985. Singer/songwriter Phil Rind's interest was in socially-conscious and political speed metal. After several records on Metal Blade Records, they signed to Hollywood Records for a short stint, but later returned to Metal Blade to continue their musical career. The band split in 2000.

Former drummer Dave McClain went on to join Machine Head in 1995. Lead guitarist Wiley Arnett went on to form The Human Condition with St. Madness vocalist Prophet in July of 2000.

In the summer of 2006, Wiley Arnett brought his recording equipment to his accountant's house in Arizona and produced the demo for the band A Tragic Comedy.

In 2007, the band reunited to play several shows in Europe, including Wacken Open Air. Since then, their groundbreaking debut and first EP have been rereleased with extra unreleased material, titled "Surf Ignorance". However,

SACRED REICH Surf Nicaragua

EP · 1988 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Vim Fuego
The cover of the `Surf Nicaragua' EP features a gas masked surfer carrying a bomb surfing on a coffin, a comment on the clandestine US operation which saw mines deployed in the seas off the Central American state of Nicaragua. Now, most thrash fans in 1988 would hardly have known where Nicaragua was, let alone cared about the United States' political and military interference in the country. Sacred Reich's vocalist/bassist and politically aware lyricist Phil Rhind managed to get them singing about it, even if they didn't know what had happened, by creating a catchy little song which skirted the realm of novelty, but was anchored firmly in thrash.

The band's debut album `Ignorance' suffered the usual first album fate of thrash bands the world over in that it was well intentioned, but not entirely executed smoothly. At times, the songs were too samey, and the band seemed intent on playing as fast as they could, losing structure and impact because of it. This EP escaped that fate.

The whole EP was created around the title track. "Surf Nicaragua" takes off with an instant blast of thrash energy, and it looks like the race is on again. However, the chorus slows for a breakdown passage, and most of the song is played at a chugging mid-tempo. Perhaps the greatest appeal of the song is the world famous riff of surf anthem "Wipeout", followed by a surfing drum break, which appear unexpectedly. By pulling back on the tempo, Jason Rainey's crushing rhythm guitar sound is allowed to shine through. Add Wiley Arnett's twisting solos and you have all the makings of a metal classic.

Second track "One Nation" also breaks the speed freak mould with a steady, almost grooving rhythm, punctuated by Rhind's drill sergeant vocal delivery. The third track is a masterful cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs", played straight and heavy. Even several decades after the song was written, the lyrics to the song are still shockingly relevant. It is still the best anti-war song in all metaldom, and outside the Sabbath original, you'll be hard pressed to find a better version of it. "Draining You Of Life" rounds out the EP, and the Nuclear Assault style thrash-out further demonstrates the band's new found talent for rationing the speedy sections to structure a song and increase their impact.

Sacred Reich were one of the wave of second generation thrash bands to come out of the US. These bands, like Flotsam and Jetsam, Forbidden and Death Angel, took their cues from thrash's originators, like Metallica, Slayer and Venom. Heavily influenced by Metallica, Sacred Reich set themselves apart from the pack by incorporating a strong political influence into their music, never better demonstrated than on this EP. Sacred Reich lost a lot of traditional thrash fans on the release of their second full album `The American Way' in 1990, by incorporating a number of new influences. The political edge to the lyrics was still there though, as was a newfound social conscience.

"Surf Ignorance" is a compilation release by US, Phoenix, Arizona based thrash metal act Sacred Reich. The compilation was released through Metal Blade Records in June 2007. "Surf Ignorance" features two audio discs and one DVD. The latter features interviews, promotional videos, live videos and a short film about Sacred Reich.

The audio part of the compilation consists of two CDs. The first disc features the full "Ignorance (1987)" album and three cover tracks by Judas Priest, MDC and Black Sabbath. The second disc features the full "Surf Nicaragua (1988)" EP (including the two live bonus tracks from the 1995 CD re-issue), some demo tracks and the version of "Ignorance" that was featured on the "Metal Massacre VIII (1987)" compilation. To sum it up it´s a compilation featuring most of the early material by Sacred Reich.

As a compilation "Surf Ignorance" serves it´s purpose well. Older fans get a chance to replace their old scratched vinyls and potential new fans get a chance to get to know the early material by the band (and learn something about them through interviews and the documentary) by purchasing one release instead of having to hunt down the original releases (which in some cases are probably out of print or nearly impossible to get your hands on). A great compilation release to my ears and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

"Surf Nicaragua" is an EP release by US US, Phoenix, Arizona based thrash metal act Sacred Reich. The EP was released through Metal Blade Records in October 1988 and bridges the gap (along with the "Alive at the Dynamo (1989)" live EP) between the band´s first two studio albums "Ignorance (1987)" and "The American Way (1990)". The original vinyl version of the EP featured four tracks and a 17:28 minutes playing time, while the 1995 CD re-issue features two extra tracks and a full playing time of 26:03 minutes.

The four tracks on the original version are all studio recordings, while the two bonus tracks on the re-issue are live versions of "Ignorance" and "Death Squad". Two tracks that in their original studio versions appear on "Ignorance (1987)". The EP title track is what you can safely call a thrash metal classic. It´s a track that shows great progression from the more serious Slayer influenced sound of the debut album, as it takes the band´s sound into a more humourous direction (which is also underlined by the cartoonish cover artwork). The band haven´t lost their political edge though which is fully on display in the next track "One Nation". A track that is almost equally as strong as the title track. The next track is a cover version of "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath. It´s alright but covers of Black Sabbath songs never made my blood boil. I much prefer the originals. The last studio track is a re-recorded version of the title track from the "Draining You of Life (1986)" demo. It´s decent but nothing too exciting. The two live tracks from the 1995 CD re-issue on the other hand are really great. I´d go as far as to say they are better than the studio originals.

The sound production is professional, powerful and suiting the music perfectly. And that goes for both the studio and the live tracks.

"Surf Nicaragua" is a classic thrash metal EP from the eighties. One of those releases you need to hear to understand the development of the genre. The quality is a bit up and down but especially "Surf Nicaragua" and "One Nation" are really positive experiences and if you include the two live bonus tracks to the overall rating I´d say a 3.5 star (70%) rating is fully deserved.

"Ignorance" is the debut full-length studio album by US, Phoenix, Arizona based thrash metal act Sacred Reich. The album was released through Metal Blade Records in October 1987 and is a self-produced affair.

The music on "Ignorance" is pretty standard thrash metal influenced somewhat by an act like Slayer. It´s not like Sacred Reich sound like Slayer, but there are quite a few similarities between them that make the reference valid. The fast-paced riffing, the aggressive staccato vocal style and the angry lyrics. Sacred Reich had a political twist to their lyrics though, which is also obvious when looking at the cover artwork. Compared to later material by the band, "Ignorance" is darker and more serious, but also a bit one-dimensional. It´s not an album where I remember each track after it´s finished. The instrumental "Layed to Rest" stands out but the rest of the tracks on the album are pretty standard fare thrash metal. Lead vocalist Phil Rind has quite a distinct sounding voice though and that saves the album from complete obscurity. I always picture that this is how Jeff Bridges would sound like if he was the lead singer in a thrash metal band instead of being an actor.

The sound production is dark and a bit murky, but it´s also powerful and suits the music well.

"Ignorance" is widely considered a "classic" thrash metal album from the eighties, and while I fully awknowledge that, it´s never been an album I´ve personally been able to appreciate much. To my ears "The American Way (1990)" is a far superior album (and the album I would direct people to if they show interest in the band) but I guess that´s an aquired taste. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is warranted.

Sacred Reich deliver the goods on this live effort, with a career spanning track listing, energetic performance and a great sound. The live album, recorded before the group disbanded sounds awesome, with a really chunky guitar sound and a good mix altogether. Vocalist Phil Rind can really perform live, and doesn't fall short live like some other singers. Highlights include a storming rendition of 'Who's To Blame,' a surprisingly bouncy version of 'Independent,' as well as all the classics like 'Surf Nicaragua,' and 'Death Squad.' The Crowd are mix low enough to still be heard but not ruin the sound, and the whole sound gives off a really good concert vibe, it seems like it would've been amazing to have been there like all the best live albums do. The concert mixes in a few numbers from the band's underrated final album 'Heal,' and the songs sound amazing and are welcome next to the classic material. Good grooves, melodic solos, chunky riffs and a solid production. What more could you ask for ? If you like Sacred Reich you really owe it to yourself to buy this, if you're new to the band this is a great place to start.
