I don’t know much about this band but here’s what I do know. They released one record in 1988, “Shades of Grey”. The material in this video is from an unreleased second album. The first album is alright. Pretty standard 80s hardcore fare. But this! This video contains monstrous anthems of darkness and despair. These songs remind of Christ on Parade meets Die Kreuzen with a hint of Christian Death. Why was this never released? What I hear in the ten minutes of this video eludes to a full masterpiece of an album. I am pretty sure all of these gentlemen still live in Youngstown. For the love of God, somebody release the second Sacred Hate LP and give the people what they need. I’m looking at you, DIY punk record labels.
