This is a great thrash-rock album by a very promising So-Cal band. Led by guitarist-vocalist Kenny Krenzin (quite the growler, but he does it well), Sacred Storm has already proved notable enough to open for big-name acts such as Kamelot. The band also features drumming phenomenon Lux, who is reputed to pound out her double-bass rolls while wearing spike-heeled shoes. Those beats resound mightily throughout the entire disk, from the cautionary title cut through to a spiritually-laden closing song called “The Revelation.” Kenny and Lux are supported by Dave Maciel on bass and Everett De Bree on guitar, to produce a satisfyingly chunky spread of metallic nuggets. Sacred Storm’s debut disk has the roar and ring of accomplished thrashers who have even greater heights yet to achieve. - All Access Magazine


The evening’s offerings began with Sacred Storm, a four-piece outfit from Orange County playing a hard-and-heavy brand of metal that’s a little rougher than Kamelot’s baroque style, but nevertheless intelligent and accomplished on its own terms. Led by lanky philosopher-fretman Kenny Krenzing, who sings as well as shreds, additional guitars are supplied by Dave Maciel, who originally played bass on Sacred Storm’s debut CD, Man Versus Machine. Interim five-string bassist Eddie held up handily during the set, while the beat was kept by knockout drummer Lux, a spike-heeled, stone-pro dynamo who’s probably one of the best ladies behind a kit these days. For an opener, Kenny roared into “Legion,” during which he stated that he wanted “to see you guys headbangin’ on this next part,” as he kicked into some lines riffs that could have been lifted from Tony Iommi. “Zero Theory” came next, and then a teen-car tribute, “Thunderchariot,” during which a bit of a mosh-pit erupted. Lux was spotlit for a solo, smiling brightly all the while, and afterward ensued “The Revelation,” a provocative piece with an end-times theme, partly reminiscent of similar matter from Iron Maiden. And then at the end, Sacred Storm busted loose with their new CD’s title track, spurring a circle pit on the floor while Kenny sang of overcoming at last, which is surely a worthy sentiment for a newcomer band of this caliber. - All Access Magazine

Sacred Storm is a local thrash metal band in the grand tradition of Megadeth and Exodus. The band has recently opened for the likes of Kamelot, Leaves Eyes, and the legendary Doro Pesch! Man Versus Machine is Sacred Storm’s debut album, and it’s an exciting prologue to what is sure to be a long and prosperous career.

Vocalist Kenny Krenzin growls out the impassioned lyrics, and is an absolute wizard on guitar, shredding away in a grand and heroic fashion. Lux is definitely one of the very best drummers our local scene has to offer, and there are many chances for her to show her magnetic prowess throughout the entire CD. Songs destined for true metal greatness on this disc include Maiden Of The Night, Thunderchariot, One Thousand Suns, and the dynamic title track. Man Versus Machine is a promising introduction from a band we’ll be hearing a lot more from in the future. A head banging explosion of technical brilliance and intelligent lyrics that many will want to revisit time and again. (Kenneth Morton) - Highwire Daze Magazine

Bio

(Click on Audio tab to download Sacred Storm's EP "Extreme Assault" - 5 songs)

The brainchild of snarling lead vocalist/mastermind lead guitarist Kenny Krenzin and stiletto-wearing drum goddess lux, Sacred Storm is an intelligent display of thrash metal mayhem. The band combines old-school influences with innovative technique, but readily maintains the ability to compel one to headbang one's brains out. Sacred Storm’s sonic chaos is a nuclear blend of simplicity and technicality; beauty and brutality; melody and dissonance.

Sacred Storm has been around for a little over 3 years and already they have made a mark in the underground metal scene. Last summer, Sacred Storm completed recording and producing their 5 song EP titled Extreme Assault as a follow up to their debut album Man Versus Machine that was released in 2007. Highwire Daze Magazine calls their debut album “A head banging explosion of technical brilliance and intelligent lyrics that many will want to revisit time and again.” The show review featured in All Access Magazine reports, “Sacred Storm’s debut disk has the roar and ring of accomplished thrashers who have even greater heights yet to achieve.”

Upon release of their debut album, the band set off on a summer west coast SHRED OR BE DEAD Tour which kicked off on June 1st 2007 with several headlining shows in Orange County and the Los Angeles area. The band proceeded to blast through California, Oregon and Washington. “The crowds in Oregon and Washington head-banged and moshed to the music like the band members were local favorites.” – Huntington Beach Independent. The tour was self-managed, self-booked, self-promoted, and self-funded.

Sacred Storm opened for Kamelot and Leaves Eyes (Germany) later that year. Rob Swick (All Access Magazine) published a show review, saying “…at the end, Sacred Storm busted loose with their new CD’s title track, spurring a circle pit on the floor while Kenny sang of overcoming at last, which is surely a worthy sentiment for a newcomer band of this caliber.” The band has also opened for Doro Pesch (Warlock), Chris Cafferey (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) and The Big Ball Stars featuring members of AC/DC, Motley Crue, Guns and Roses, and Alice Cooper. They have played numerous world-famous Hollywood venues including the Whisky A Go Go, the Keyclub and the Knitting Factory.

In 2010, the band has continued song writing and will be releasing a new track, titled "Nuclear Flying Crystals", this summer that will be available online as a free download for all fans across the globe.
