Sacred Sin - _Translucid Dream Mirror_
by: Adrian Bromley (
There is something really unique sounding about the music of Portuguese act Sacred Sin. The epic vibes of their music on _Translucid Dream Mirror_, mixed with the aggressive metal assault and fancy keyboard work, really throws this act into the spotlight in my books. Unlike a lot of bands out there nowadays who try their hardest to fit into a scene or style, it is great to hear an album like _TDM_ where the band has made a conscious effort to explore everything about themselves as musicians and bring that out in the music. The band obviously disregarded whatever is popular in the spectrum of music nowadays and aimed to capture their metal essence within _TDM_. Just listen to the work on songs like "Ravish the Soul" or "Gift of Second Sight" and you can just feel the intensity they bring to their sound and style. This is epic death metal, with a flair for progressive metal at times (though in small doses) and of course the radiance of the black metal aura. A great band that deserves a lot of exposure for the hard work they put into _TDM_.
