Sacred Outcry - Damned For All Time

Man who knew that this is what I needed on a Saturday morning? European power metal in the grand old style! There is something incredibly charming about the genre and digging in deep into bands like Sacred Outcry is part of what makes these songs so worth it. 22 years in the making, their debut LP, Damned For All Time is a masterful offering that shows the band may have taken a while to make things happen, but certainly still know how to put together some awesome, and very fun music. It's just the hit I needed to kick start my weekend.

Perhaps the most obvious highlight here is the potent dynamic range. The band has a fondness for acoustic interludes and even touches of choirs, but it is done in a way that rarely drags and usually feels tasteful. The band do not lose themselves in the nonsense that so many of their peers embrace that just feels masturbatory. Even the 14 minute long 'Damned For All Time' seems to make sense within the larger context of what the band is trying to create here. Yes it's silly and over the top, but when combined with the doubled vocals and angular guitar playing it's hard not to be charmed by what Damned For All Time achieves.

There's a lot of technical ecstasy on display here, from burly and elegantly put together guitars to soaring vocals. The raw talent on display is thrilling and the simple elegance of the deliver serves to create a delightful listening experience. This is an impressive record and one that I think true metallers are going to find themselves spinning time and time again. Rather than sliding into boomer metal tropes like so many of their similarly aged peers, Sacred Outcry manage to make Damned For All Time an exciting and addictive listen.

  1. Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony.

      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
