Introduced by "(Intro) Glory Ride," new single "Heavy Metal Sacrifice" is a hymn that goes back to the band's roots and to their classic style of traditional heavy metal. Everything in it, from the music to the lyrics, is an act of devotion for the true metal gods.
Sacred Steel never compromised. "Heavy Metal Sacrifice" is the proof. Born to reign in iron glory, forever!
