Memphis, Tennessee based heavy metal band Sacrum was founded when guitarist Jeff Williams, who started playing at the ripe old age of 14, met drummer Harvey Waldman. The two musicians soon discovered they enjoyed pushing each other and their music to the limits and easily dodged trends in the music industry and on the radio. Ready to expand and flex their metal muscles, Williams and Waldman brought bassist John Ayers a.k.a. Big John, into the fold. It became clear that Ayers was a 100% solid on the axe & as a friend. In 2003 the group started recording demos and when Jeff's brother and vocalist Brad Williams entered the picture Sacrum was complete. With the Williams brothers contributing the music and lyrics and Ayers's and Waldman writing their own parts on bass and drums, Sacrum is a tight knit band of friends and a true democracy. Their sound, a southern groove-based progressive metal mix, is heavily influence by their heroes Pantera and Dream Theater, yet easily stands strong on its own. Lyrically, Brad Williams is a fearless writer; unafraid to delve deep into the blackest corners of the human mind. On the band's song "No One's Forgiveness" he growls, "So just forget about tomorrow / The deepest depression / A silent regression." Sacrum takes us to a place of deep sorrow and rage where we've all been or will be at some point in this life. Sacrum's brutal energy and raw lyrics are hard won. The group's players have seen, walked through, and survived their share of tragedies including the death of Jeff and Brad's father to lung cancer, the loss of Harvey's own brother in high school, and the loss of several friends over the years to violence. Sacrum has taken that heartache, grown stronger as a band, and turned it into powerful ferocious music that pays tribute to heavy metal heroes like the late Darrell "Dimebag" Lance Abbott of Pantera who was gunned down on stage by a deranged fan December 8th, 2004. Sacrum has been together 6 years. They are currently receiving heavy airplay on Memphis's main rock station, 93X. Their videos can also be seen on MySpace ( and YouTube. The band is yet to release an album, but 6 songs can be heard on their MySpace page and if it's any indication of what we can expect from these uncompromising heavy metal monsters, Sacrum are on the verge of ushering in a refreshing, cutting edge new era of heavy metal.
