3 stars Hailing from Argentina, Sacrum has made an interesting full length debut album here.

Progressive metal is the name of the game here, and although it is a genre pretty exhausted in terms of making unique material, these guys manage to at least add in some details now and then that aren't overly much used. The general sound and atmosphere on many tunes do sound quite influenced by the great band of the genre, Dream Theater. Especially some of the tunes in the second half of the CD.

But some inventive use of atmospheric passages, riff patterns that owe just as much to Metallica and Megadeth, as well as the black metal and folk tinged tune Sacrum shows that this band may have more up their sleeve if they continue to evolve.

Quite a few groovy tunes here, and about just as many that sound good without being standout in any way. Worth checking out by fans of the genre, but not an album that will find many fans outside of it.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
