The Ultimate Abomination
October 2009
Released: 2009, Khaosmaster Productions
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Luxi Lahtinen

Sacrilegio from Puerto Rico, have got a big wheel rollin´ for them. The band´s debut album, THE ULTIMATE ABOMINATION, has now been released on Khaosmaster Productions (also located in Puerto Rico), offering 11 tracks + intro of power-thrash metal. And now each of you is all curious ears, right?

THE ULTIMATE ABOMINATION continues securely from those deep footsteps where they left off on their 2-band split-CD (together with the Mexican progressive thrashers Blood Exile), titled THRASH CLASH VOLUME 3, released by US-based label Stormspell Records. It all sounds like the whole band has been in a really creative songwriting mood when coming up with this material for their debut album. The creative juices have truly been flowing inside the band as far as the ear-pleasing songs for the album are concerned. The album just stands out on its own – and there´s these guys´ tight playing and sharp sense for some very good song writing involved constantly on this release.

It´s not only Danny´s or Jose´s splendid guitar work, or Luis´ powerful and skilled vocalism that make THE ULTIMATE ABOMINATION such an enjoyable listening experience, but it is really everything on this album that makes one fascinated by the band´s pleasingly oldschool-tinged power-thrash. Basically everything seems to click with each other seamlessly – and therefore the songs turn out to be the way they are, i.e. amazingly strong tour-de-forces from the Sacrilegio camp, showing that our Central American metal brothers are true experts on creating catchy, heavy and beautifully flowing thrash with enough hooks – and getting deserved credit for that. In the same breath, they also need to be credited for having their Slayer-esque moment in a song called “The Traitor”, in which the opening riff not only almost seems, but does remind deceptively of Slayer´s “God Hates Us All” song. Probably just a pure coincidence - who knows.

By all accounts, THE ULTIMATE ABOMINATION is a very recommended release for all of you who value a strong craftsmanship and overall determined attitude to come up with an albumful of killer songs. Good to have you guys around. ;o)
