Lakeland, Florida Christian power metallers THE SACRIFICED recently completed work on their third album, aptly entitled “III”, for a January 31 release via Roxx Records and Divine Metal Distribution. According to a press release, the CD “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’.”
“III” track listing:
01. The World is Changing (Intro)
03. Ark Of The Covenant
04. The Nephilim Agenda
05. Time’s Up
06. Words On The Gin
07. Behold The Power Of God
10. Before The Storm
“Falling” is now available for streaming on the Roxx Facebook page.
With the addition of two new members, Michael Phillips (DELIVERANCE, FASEDOWN) on guitar 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 QUEENSRŸCHE 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 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” of the lyrical content of “III”.
