SACRILEGE
SACRILEGE
Biography:
Prior to the formation of SACRILEGE, in '83/'84, guitarist Damian Thompson and drummer Andy Baker released a pair of Crust/Punk demos under the moniker Warwound. In 1983, the duo joined The Varukers, Damian left The Varukers in 1984 to form SACRILEGE. In '84 and '85, the band recorded two Punk/Crust demos and contributed tracks to the compilations "We Won't be your Fucking Poor" (Mortarhate, 1985) and "Anglican Scrape Attic" (1985 - Flexi-7"EP feat. Hirax, Execute, Lip Cream and Concrete Sox) (a pre-Earache release from Digby Pearson).

After replacing drummer Pickering with Andrew Baker in 1985, SACRILEGE recorded their first 12" mini LP "Behind the Realms of Madness" in July 1985, which was released through the Bristol-based label Children of the Revolution (COR) Records. The release was moderately successful, selling a respectable 7.000 copies. Shortly after this, the band brought in former Warhammer member Mitch Dickinson on second guitar, although he never played live with the band and he soon left to join Hardcore group Heresy and later Unseen Terror. Around this time, the band were approached by FM Revolver Records, but this ultimately went nowhere.

During 1986, the band recorded two more demos, one in January featuring 3 songs, and another in August with 5 songs. Seven of these songs were later included on their first full-length album "Within the Prophecy", which was recorded in January 1987 at Birmingham's Rich Bitch Studios with Rob Bruce and producer Mike Ivory. It was released later that year through Under One Flag Records, a subsidiary of Music for Nations. During the recordings of the W.T.P. album, bassist Tony May left the band being replaced by Paul Morrisey and a rhythm guitarist called Frank Healey joined the band. Towards the end of the same year, drummer Andy Baker was replaced with Paul Brookes.

After a further change, this time replacing Brookes with new drummer Spikey T. Smith and Healey taking the bass duties after Morrisey's departure, the new line-up recorded the band's 2nd full-length album "Turn Back Trilobite", issued in April 1989 again on Under One Flag/ Music For Nations. This record saw the band moving away from their Thrash Metal roots into a more Doom Metal musical direction. SACRILEGE finally split-up in early 1990.

After SACRILEGE, Healey and Baker would go on to join Cerebral Fix, with Healey later joining Benediction and Baker also playing in an early incarnation of Cathedral. Brookes would also Benediction, and then metal act Marshall Law in 1999. Cerebral Fix covered SACRILEGE's 'The Closing Irony' on their 1990 album 'Tower of Spite', suitably using it as the final track and making a slight name alteration 'Closing Irony'.
