October 06 – Review by Stefan – SACRED OUTCRY – DAMNED FOR ALL TIME (No Remorse Records / Plastic Head / Sure Shot Worx)

Coming discussion has everything to do with the first chapter in regards to the “Sacred Chronicles” of the band. The story started in 1998 when this Greek formation was founded as an Epic Metal band influenced by Manowar, Warlord and Domine mainly. During the first few years of existence they toured with Doomsword. Back in 2001, Sacred Outcry entered the studio to record their debut “Damned For All Time” but apparently the recording process did not go smoothly, after a period of two years everything was stopped, and this for a very long time ! After having only a rough mix in hands, the story continues in 2015 when the recording resumed. It took three years but this time there was more momentum in the overall finishing of the album. The editing, mixing and mastering duties was finished in 2019. After almost twenty years it finally happened, it took a lot of effort, and time, but on September 25th 2020 Sacred Outcry’s debut album “Damned For All Time” is a fact !

If you have to wait twenty years for an album, the end result has to be something special and believe me on my word, “Damned For All Time” has become a miraculously beautiful album with only highlights in store. This masterpiece will accompany you for a playing time of 55 minutes, production wisely reaches a very high level and the songwriting is outstanding ! READ MORE…
