SACRIFICE - On The Altar Of Rock LP
Switzerland also had (and still has) a lot to offer in terms of hard music. Sacrifice from Délemont were founded in 1982 and two years later drew attention to themselves with what is now a very rare EP. The cleverly arranged mix of heavy metal and hard rock was not only well received nationwide, but also called the German company GAMA onto the scene, which released the debut "On The Altar Of Rock" on their Camel label in 1985. In good condition, collectors today have to reckon with 50 euros and more to buy the original LP with the tasteful cover. A CD of the record (Aurophon) was released in 1990. In 1991, another album was recorded under the name Jade, which turned more towards hard rock.

"Encyclopedia Metallum" lists the band as Heavy/Power Metal and that's right, at least for 1985. The LP went unnoticed for many years, but with the advent of the internet and social media, it gained more and more (young) fans. A CD version of the album was released by a South American company, while Golden Core launched the vinyl again.

This re-release was done in collaboration with some former band members so that a printed inlay with liner notes and photos was possible. Despite the bonus tracks, the playing time has remained at a level that guarantees the best possible sound quality.
The track "Little Killer Man" was released at the end of 2020 on the double CD "The Best Of And The Rare Of GAMA Records" released by Golden Core and received a mention in numerous reviews.

Comes with printed inlay including photos, information, credits and lyrics.
