Sacred Reich - 30 Years of Ignorance Tour -Byzantine
Sacred Reich is a Phoenix, Arizona based thrash metal band that formed in 1985. Singer/songwriter Phil Rind’s interest was in socially-conscious and political speed metal. After several records on Metal Blade, they signed to Hollywood Records for a short stint, but later returned to Metal Blade to continue their musical career. The band split in 2000.
Former drummer Dave McClain went on to join Machine Head (3) in 1995. Lead guitarist Wiley Arnett went on to form The Human Condition with St. Madness vocalist Prophet in July of 2000.
In the summer of 2006, Wiley Arnett brought his recording equipment to his accountant's house in Arizona and produced the demo for the band A Tragic Comedy.
In 2007, the band reunited to play several shows in Europe, including Wacken Open Air. Since then, their groundbreaking debut and first EP have been rereleased with extra unreleased material, titled “Surf Ignorance”. However, according to an interview with bassist/vocalist Phil Rind, there are no plans to record a new Sacred Reich album.
In 2009, the band’s second full length album "The American Way" was reissued by Displeased Records with added bonus tracks. The band again went to Europe in the Summer to tour some clubs and festivals.
Their live performance at Wacken Open Air 2009 is available on CD and DVD.
In 2010 the third album "Indepedent" was reissued, again by Displeased Records, with 3 EPs as bonus tracks.
