Reunited Canadian thrashers SACRIFICE are recording their new album, "The Ones I Condemn", at Rouge Valley Studio in Toronto, Ontario with engineer Darius Szczepaniak, who has previously worked with I MOTHER EARTH, SUM 41 and EDWIN, among many others. The CD is tentatively due this spring via Brazil's Marquee Records.
Commented vocalist/guitarist Rob Urbinati: "Finally the Toronto cold snap broke, day temperature around +1 Celsius, just above freezing… just in time because it kept us shut in Rouge Valley Studio all weekend. Scott Watts managed to finish up the bass on Friday, Joe Rico finished up his guitar tracks on Sunday, so that just leaves a few vocal tracks for myself and we will be ready to mix very soon.
"I can't find words to describe the sonic Armageddon we have laid down. Late Sunday night, we were talking about how we wouldn't trade this sound for anything. Darius, our engineer, took our visions and is really making it happen. It is raw, thick, all the instruments sound heavy alone…together it is completely devastating. It sounds real. It sounds like a band, not a computer-program-fixed band.
"Not finished yet, but the finish line is visible. We cannot wait to unleash this album to the world."

SACRIFICE is planning to release a new DVD, "Live Reanimation", later in the year, featuring the band's complete reunion show from September 2006 at the Day Of The Equinox II festival in Toronto, Ontario at the Opera House. The group's original lineup performed tracks from their classic metal releases: "Torment In Fire" (1986), "Forward To Termination" (1987) and "Soldiers of Misfortune" (1990).
