O jornalista José Norberto Flesch anunciou, em matéria no jornal Destak, a vinda da banda norte-americana Sacred Reich ao Brasil - com uma data no Recife, mais especificamente para o festival Abril Pro Rock , tendo já confirmação por parte do produtor Paulo André Pires.

O Sacred Reich faz parte da segunda geração do thrash metal. Eles vêm de Phoenix, no Arizona, e sempre investiram numa sonoridade que mesclava a agressividade do Slayer com algum groove. Alguns até os inserem na cena crossover.


O Sacred Reich lançou vários discos a partir da estreia, com Ignorance (1987), ficando mais conhecidos na cena pelo magnífico EP Surf Nicaragua (1988). 

Os discos seguintes, The American Way (1990) e Independent (1993), são acima da média e têm letras que chamam a atenção para as críticas ao papel dos Estados Unidos no mundo.

Em que pese a banda ter voltado há alguns anos, eles têm feito shows, mas preferem não gravar nada novo. 

Uma ótima atração para o tradicional festival pernambucano, que completa 25 anos em 2018. Novos anúncios devem ser feitos nos próximos dias. Se forem no mesmo nível, preparem os pescoços.

Abaixo vídeo e letra de The American Way


The American Way

Truth and honor faith and pride
all convictions surely died
honesty's time has passed
time for lies is here at last
truth is false I'm so fed up
how did we come to be so fucked
hate fear pain death
all our country has got left

Talk to children hear them say
daddy left again today
brother steals and mommy lies
future lost before their eyes
the sun was lost behind the clouds
they wrapped it up and blacked it out
acid rain fell today
it came and washed our hopes away

This was once the land of dreams
now these dreams have turned to greed
in the midst of all this wealth
the poor are left to help themselves
a capitalist's democracy
why, no one said that freedom's free
lady liberty rots away
no truth, no justice
the American way

Don't look past your t.v.
all of us are what we see
a looking glass into our lives
what we watch is what we buy
priorities are out of whack
who is next to stab our back
doesn't it make you mad
to have lost all that we've had

This was once the land of dreams
now these dreams have turned to greed
in the midst of all this wealth
the poor are left to help themselves
a capitalist's democracy
why, no one said that freedom's free
lady liberty rots away
no truth, no justice
the American way

Doesn't it fill you with disgust
that there's no one left to trust
is this happening is this real
my body numb I cannot feel
are you happy are you sad
are emotions a thing of the past
I have no tears, I cannot cry
no one mourns for a world that's died

This was once the land of dreams
now these dreams have turned to greed
in the midst of all this wealth
the poor are left to help themselves
a capitalist's democracy
why, no one said that freedom's free
lady liberty rots away
no truth, no justice
the American way
