“Emerging from the depths of brooding doom and the enchantment of gothic metal, seamlessly blending the finest elements of each genre. Listen to the new single, »Emptiness«, and you just might uncover the enchanting melodies of Sacrifire!”
Imagine an unruly child of dark mid-tempo doom and gothic metal, bringing together the best of both worlds in a way that is emotionally touching without losing its (heavy) drive. If you try, you might end up hearing Sacrifire.
With members of Disbelief, Décembre Noir, Warpath, Soul Demise and Detraktor, fans can definitely expect high quality metal, nonetheless one would not necessarily foresee the stylistic direction of Sacrifire – keeping the beforementioned bands in mind. Their self-titled EP from 2020 already gave a first impression of their style that harkens back to the heyday of bands like Paradise Lost or Type O Negative, added by a unique flavor and a sound that allows all musical ingredients to shine: the powerful guitar work, the pounding rhythms as well as the low vocals that oscillates between expressive cleans and aggressive shouts.
»The Art Of Decay« is like a musical ride through different fields. While tracks like »As If You Never Existed« or »In The Arms Of Morpheus« are more rooted in gothic rock, you can definitely hear death metal roaring through the riffs in »If They Could Speak«, »Remembrance« and »The Search«. And if this wasn’t already a rich variety in itself, one can find a dense atmosphere in the more experimental »My Sanctuary’ and »Pain Of Deception«. It must be said that Sacrifire manage to combine all these elements into a cohesive whole.
