My first exposure to the band Living Sacrifice was their “Nonexistent” album. It was OK. I wasn’t into that style of vocals and while I thought the music was heavy I just couldn’t get past my dislike of the vocals.
Sometime last year I was scrolling through my iTunes library to find something to listen to and found the “Nonexistent” album and tried again. Out of curiosity I Googled the band to see if they were still around and sure enough they are!
In fact, they had a “new” album out, “Ghost Thief”.
I really dig this. It’s thrashy, has a groove (I love the outro). Brutal. Just damn fine metal.
