Down In The Valley - Music, Movies, Minneapolis & More

For years, Randy, the drummer and co-founding member of the iconic Christian rockers, Mad At the World, infused the band's sound with a powerful hard rock essence. However, it was in 1991 that he truly elevated their music to new heights with the release of their raw and haunting album, Sacrificium, under Intense Records. This debut album exudes a distinct Danzig vibe, especially evident in Randy's vocals. The music itself is a slow, brooding amalgamation of doomy sludge, heavily influenced by the likes of Black Sabbath and Trouble. Tracks such as Oppression and the more spirited Wicked Ways immediately captivate listeners, with the latter boasting a chorus that lingers in your mind long after the song ends - Would someone please release me, from the ways of this world. Similarly, the relentless riffs of Black Harvest are bound to have metalheads headbanging to it's infectious groove, while Walls of Hate showcases a monstrous Black Sabbath-inspired riff, complemented by stellar guitar work from Randy's brother, Roger Rose. While the Danzig comparisons are warranted, the album draws from a plethora of influences, making it a multifaceted masterpiece. This remastered edition of Sacrificium by Retroactive Records in 2024 is a must-have for any fan of dark and heavy classics. Packaged in a jewel case with an expanded 8-page lyrics booklet and a special message from Randy Rose himself, this limited release of just 300 CDs ensures it's status as a cherished collector's item.
