Stereogum.com has premiered “En Cima Del Mal,” a new track from upcoming SACRAL RAGE album “Illusions in Infinite Void”. Stream it right here.
“…astonishing riff-centric brilliance of Sacral Rage, a Greek speed metal band that has stumbled upon (or, more likely, slavishly labored to create) an album’s worth of ingenious riffs on its debut, Illusions In Infinite Void.

“Illusions in Infinite Void”, will be released March 10 in North America and March 21 in Europe.
