Traditional heavy metal is well documented. It is very hard to expose someone to a heavy metal band from the 80’s they have never heard of, regardless of their origin. So tell me why no one has ever heard of the heavy cutting edge of Sacred Few? Sacred Few’s Beyond The Iron Walls sounds like an excellent lost NWOBHM cut from the early 80’s even though they hail from Ohio and this album was originally released in 1985. Once you put on Beyond The Iron Walls you will be rockin’ with the Sacred Few.

Shadow Kingdom Records has reissue this timeless classic and is out on CD right now. On June 3rd you can get this piece of cult heavy metal on LP. The original pressing of this album has some sweet heavy bass lines but this reissue has some great remaster work making those bass lines  so crisp sounding it is quite amazing. Beyond the Iron Walls features some rockin’ guitars, excellent bass playing, and steady drum work. Sacred Few is not your average mid-80’s heavy metal, case in point, the vocals. The reason Sacred Few’s vocals are not average is because it is very rare you hear a female in a strictly heavy metal band.

It is quite too bad that Beyond The Iron Walls is the only full length that Sacred Few ever released. If they were to have stuck around for just a little longer the north american public would have been looking their way as the glam metal bubble burst around 1987 when bands were fusing elements of heavy metal and making them commercial. Sacred Few would have hit their stride then and would have been stomping on those poser scum.

 

The Shadow Kingdom Records version of this album  features some sick bonus material that is worthy of attention from all metal heads. If that album art alone doesn’t strike a nerve within you that tells you that this is some cult heavy metal from the mid-80’s you might as well give up trying to listen to real metal.
