Sacred Reich - _Still Ignorant: Live 1987-1997_
(Metal Blade/Attic, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Although I have mixed feelings about Sacred Reich's early material, I did start to appreciate the band and what they brought to thrash metal. Their material was exemplary of metal's origins and more important than the hundreds of clone acts that had fallen by the roadside over the last decade or so. Phil Rind was a man of metal on a mission to keep metal alive and intact. This release proves that he has accomplished mission. Compiling such metal classics as "Surf Nicaragua", "Independent", and new material off of their last effort (1996's _Heal_), this 13-song live LP jams out the tunes in true metal fashion. Slick riffs and rough vocals flow ever so violently. I like live records, and this effort is pretty well done. Both Rind and the music sound clear. Fans of Sacred Reich will scoop this up, as should any metal fan who wants to jump back into the past with a true metal workhorse.
