RELEASE DATE: FEBRUARY 28, 2012
The Sacrificed are very happy to announce they have signed on with Roxx Records 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!
