A satisfying chunk of angry hi-frequency distortion is fired straight from
the camp of members of Manc Music legends Jackie O, Breaking Colts and
Tsuji Giri. Don’t expect it to sound too much like components of the
modern local alt.rock scene though. This slices through your brain like a
speeded up version of (a first album) Banshees fired through a bazooka
most probably being aimed by Thurston Moore. Acidic, grappling
incendiary, pioneering leftfield rock. It’s a pretty uncompromising and
unique cocktail of searing, angry, blazing post-punk fuelled by angular
distortion pedal fireworks.
Jack Doyle and Paul Hanley have already, even at such youthful stages in
their life, left a trail of good bands behind them. There was their time in
the heavily airplayed and nearly signed, The Forest and then their edgy
rock project Pooler. This time they swing in a slightly harder direction
with Sacred, with the addition of Daniel Land on bass guitar. “Second
Time” is a swamp of stoner rock, grinding and churning along like Alice In
Chains swinging it out with Deftones. It’s all taken down to a lo-fi level
and the big fat guitars act like a comforting sonic assault via the
permanently weighty tones. “In The Mix” is an epic struggle of battling
guitars, a landslide of drums and Sabbath influenced melodies played in
the lowest octave possible. - Manchester Music
