The Triclavian Advent


Blackened thrash by way of Dublin is what you'll find on Sacrilegia's debut, The Triclavian Advent. Black/thrash is about as saturated as a genre gets in 2019, with new bands popping up constantly, all trying to further distill the witch's brew begun by Venom and Frost before refinement by the hordes of second-wave bands in the early '90s. Sacrilegia are more "black" than "thrash" with a focus on a guitar sound that favors a tremolo picking style over straight riffs, though some of the latter are present. The vocals are a near-indecipherable howl, bellowing lyrics that at least have more than the standard "hail Satan" vibe. To my ears, all the songs sound pretty much the same, with the exception of the closing instrumental "As with Spears We Come" which actually slows down occasionally and, as a result, builds a little atmosphere. The Triclavian Advent is fine for what it is but embodies that phrase "another face in the crowd".
