Machine Head drummer Dave McClain rejoined his former Sacred Reich bandmates on stage at the Hellfest in Clisson, France on Saturday, June 22 to perform the classic SR song "Independent". Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed here (clip uploaded by Dave Ingham a.k.a. YouTube user "triptykon").
McClain was a member of Sacred Reich from 1991 to 1995. He played on the "A Question" EP (1991) and the "Independent" (1993) and "Heal" (1996) albums before leaving to join Machine Head.
Displeased Records' reissue of Sacred Reich's classic album "The American Way" came out in February. With upgraded layout, to-the-point remastering plus unreleased pre-production demo bonus tracks and a video clip, this new and improved CD reissue is an essential addition to every thrash metal collection!
"The American Way" was made available in a limited digipak version and standard jewel case version. The first 2,500 copies come with a free logo patch.
Metal Blade Records released a three-disc deluxe reissue of Sacred Reich's "Ignorance" and "Surf Nicaragua" in June 2007. Two CDs are included in the package (both remastered!) as well as a bonus DVD. The package, which was made available in Europe only, includes liner notes by Rind and Malcolm Dome (Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, Total Rock Radio) and an extensive booklet with loads of previously unpublished photos.
