A tight band with a big sound, this release is a collective of ten quality rock songs. The song writing is strong, the sound – a mixture of hard and melodic rock, the talent speaks for itself.
What can I say except his voice and speaking tone totally creeps me out whilst making me cringe all at the same time. I don’t understand? Why? When he is screaming then it’s great and makes sense but when he is speaking, I can see Andy LaPlegua in make-up looking like the Ringmaster of a victorian freak show.
This album is a super charged rock heavy ride of dark vocals combined with the ultimate in musicianship with guitar and drums weaving a web of storytelling with each track. I love the way the whole adventure begins and ends with instrumental tracks.
‘Sacred Ground’ could well be the very best ‘Dare’ album to date it is that good from the songwriting , production to the delivery everything about this album is immaculate. So stand up and take a bow guys you have done yourselves proud, an outstanding album which will stand the test of time and still be a monster \m/\m/.
High as The Pines is possibly the most original sounding track on this album, there’s quite a lot going on here for a song which is not overly long. Lyrically superb, Darren King pulls off an amazing bass groove, the drumming sounds isolated in places and a classic guitar riff brings it to an abrupt end – musical perfection.
This Swiss four piece deliver no nonsense, high energy, hard hitting, kick ass rock you’re going to want to dance your ass off to. Simple. Absolutely gutted I missed the gig, next time!

We haven’t heard the two bonus tracks yet, but can’t imagine them swaying our overall impressions of this solid album. It’s a great listen, and will definitely be getting plenty of repeat plays here.
