SACRED REICH + VIO-LENCE: AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2020!!!

 

Fresh of the back of a huge run of international shows, Hardline Media are absolutely stoked to announce that SACRED REICH & VIO-LENCE will be heading down under in late FEBRUARY, 2020 for an epic thrash double bill!

 

SACRED REICH – BACK FOR A TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO AUS!!!

After a 25 year wait, Hardline Media are thrilled to welcome back SACRED REICH to Aussie shores.

 

Formed in 1985, in Phoenix, Arizona, SACRED REICH are credited with being leaders of the second wave of thrash metal in the 80’s, alongside TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL and DARK ANGEL. With their socially conscious and political brand of speed metal, SACRED REICH released a brutal run of albums on Metal Blade Records and Hollywood Records, notably EP’s “Draining You of Life” (1986), “Surf Nicaragua” (1988), “A Question” (1991) and album’s “Ignorance” (1987), “The American Way” (1990), “Independent” (1993), “Heal” (1996)…And…

 

2019 brought the much anticipated release of the bands’ fifth studio album “Awakening” to rave reviews and the return of powerhouse Dave McClain on drums (MACHINE HEAD) to the SACRED REICH stronghold. Hardline Media are pumped to welcome back legends McLain, Phil Rind (vocals, bass), Wiley Arnett (lead guitar) and new member Joey Radziwill (rhythm guitar) for a killer run of shows down under. Don’t miss SACRED REICH prove that:

“Thrash has never really gone away… The mosh pit hoovers up the bands back catalogue and responds with a guttural almost Nordic roar.” – ORIGINAL ROCK

 

 

 

VIO-LENCE – FIRST TIME IN AUSTRALIA!!!

Re-united and playing their first shows in over a decade to sold out crowds, thrash legends VIO-LENCE are NOT TO BE MISSED.

 

Formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985, VIO-LENCE instilled themselves as groundbreakers of the second wave of thrash with their revered 1988 album “Eternal Nightmare”. Throughout ’88 and ’89, VIO-LENCE toured the album to great success alongside thrash comrades TESTAMENT, VOIVOD, DEATH ANGEL, SANCTUARY, NUCLEAR ASSAULT, D.R.I., M.O.D. and the CRO-MAGS. In ’89, Megaforce Records/Atlantic signed the band, leading to the release of the bands’ second album  “Oppressing the Masses” (1990). The band toured the album to packed crowds alongside OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EXODUS, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, DEFIANCE, RIGOR MORTIS and PRONG.
