This is a review of another recording from Sacred Sin which shows their early technical and atmospheric mixture of death and thrash metal and the album was originally released in 1993 and called "Darkside" which also saw a re-issue put out in 2014 as a joint effort between Satanath Records, Envenomed Music and Rebirth the Metal Productions.
A very heavy and atmospheric sound along with some keyboards start off the album and a few seconds alter melodies and death metal growls are added into the music while the faster sections of t he songs use blast beats and thrash influences and you can also hear a touch of early black metal in the bands musical style.
Spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and they also give the music more of a ritualistic feeling while the solos and leads are very melodic and technical sounding and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and a great amount of the tracks also use the keyboards as a lead instrument.
On this recording Sacred Sin played more of a raw style of death/thrash that was style technical and atmospheric while also having a touch of black metal, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover Occultism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sacred Sin and if you are a fan of technical and atmospheric black/thrash metal with a touch of black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Darkside" "The Chapel Of Lost Souls" "Suffocate In Torment" and "Carnage Forsaken". 8 out of 10.
