Product Description
Sacrilege are an utterly essential act in UK metal history for three main reasons: They were one of the first female-fronted outfits in Metal history (probably second only to the Belgians Acid), they were one of first thrash metal band on UK soil and they were possibly the first modern Doom Metal practitioners in England, predating the Doom Metal hordes of the early-90's. A truly important entity that managed to carve their own individualistic sound from the get-go with this abrasive Crust/Punk/Hardcore/Thrash "Beyond The Realms Of Madness" that was their debut.
By the time this full-length was released, Sacrilege had parted with much of their Crust Punk influence, replacing it with doom metal aspects while not ditching the overall Thrash metal base. That rusty, filthy and massive guitar sound is still there, which acclimates itself quite well to the albums slower plodding sections, and theres still some moments when the rhythms kick into high-speed gear, but for the most part this is a mid-tempo affair full of drive with that fat rhythm guitar overwhelming the drums on occasion to the point where the music resonates as slower than it actually is, simply unique.

Sacrileges second full-length deserves definitively more affection and attention. As far as we can see, “Within The Prophecy” is one of the few albums that possesses really unique features.
