Sacred Reich – loud, proud and as fast as a gale-force wind
Loud, proud and as fast as a musical gale-force wind, Sacred Reich are amongst the royalty of crossover thrash metal, and rightly so.

Experience thrash at its best and delivered to you by one of its top exponents when you buy and sell Sacred Reich tickets on StubHub.
Sacred Reich are from Arizona, USA, and formed in 1985. The founding members were Phil Rind on bass and vocals, Ray Nay on drums, and Jeff Martinek on guitar, however Jeff sadly died in 2018. The band disbanded in 2000 but have reunited throughout the 21st Century for tours and recording. They have been aligned with Death Angel, Testament and Destruction as part of what is known as the second wave of thrash metal. Their early albums and EPs – Ignorance, The American Way and Surf Nicaragua – have been seen as iconic in the world of thrash metal and put Sacred Reich in the top tier of the genre. Thrash metal is considered an extremely aggressive member of the heavy metal family. It is seen as intensely political, and the work of band founder and chief lyric writer, Phil Rind, has indeed been described as "political" and "socially conscious". Crossover thrash, as played by Sacred Reich, combines elements of hardcore punk music with thrash.
