Metalforce is een begrip binnen de religious metal en zij hebben speciaal voor de Popcentrale vijf waanzinnige metalbands weten te strikken:
Versatile, energetic and profound - without neglecting brutal linearity. That's distinctive for Sacrificium from Stuttgart, Germany. A twentyfour-year band history with many live appearances in 12 different countries and quite a few line-up changes helped the band to achieve thier maturity. After a few self produced records the band signed in 2002 their 1st record deal and released their CD "COLD BLACK PIECE OF FLESH" ( Rock Hard 7.5/10 etc) thru the german label Whirlwind Records. Basically into the old school death metal vein but with a significant approach to the modern views if the genre, Sacrificium made clear how they would carry from that point.
In Nov. 2005 they released ther 2nd CD "ESCAPING THE STUPOR" (Rock Hard 8/10, Legacy 12/15, Metalnews 6/7) thru the greek label Black Lotus Records, followed by reviews and interviews in all important magazines around the globe. On stage they satisfy with their experience and roll with a bunchload precision, energy and emotion over their crowd as if there would be no tomorrow.
No matter if small or big location, Festival or on tour they proved their skills beside bands like Extol, Unleashed, Eluveitie, Dismember, Hatesphere or Becoming the archtype... Since a while the band is working on their next record "Prey for your gods", which will be released with the bands 20th anniversary in 2013 thru the german label Whirlwind Records.
The band released their latest record "PREY FOR YOUR GODS" (Rock Hard7.5/10, Legacy 12/15 etc.) fall of 2013 thru the german label "WHIRLWIND RECORDS" with the 20th anniversary of the band. Sadly the label decided to quit buisness after one year and so the band had to take care of the distribution themself for a while and finally found a partner in SOUNDMASS RECRODS for worldwide distribution.
After a few line up changes and the return of former band member Ulrike Uhlmann the band is now working on songs for the follow up record of "PREY FOR YOUR GODS" which will be released to the 25 th anniversary of the band.
