Highly anticipated sophomore album from promising Greek speedsters, ushering in the age of »High-Tech Metal Lunacy« where technicality and classic metal reign supreme. - Beyond Celestial Echoes is the much-anticipated third album from Greek speed metal outfit Sacral Rage. Best defined as a cross between Coroner, Helstar and Voivod, Sacral Rage’s fluid, death-defying technical brand of thrash is a spectacle onto itself where no limits exist in the ceaseless realm that is outer space.
Perhaps no one was as surprised of the success of Sacral Rage’s 2015 Illusions in Infinite Void album than the band themselves. The Athens, Greece four-piece — Dimitris (vocals), Marios P. (guitar), Spyros S. (bass) and Vagelis F. (drums) — formed in 2011 with the basic premise of combining high-wire technical metal with melodic, classic metal. It is a risky, albeit unique formula, attempted by many, mastered only by a few.
However, Sacral Rage pulled it off to such an extent on Illusions that the metal underground had no choice but to take notice. Soon, the Greeks were thrust into the European tour and festival circuit, rapidly honing their live skills in preparation for the second full-length album, which has emerged as Beyond Celestial Echoes.
