At the start of the last decade, Living Sacrifice was a giant in the Christian metal scene. They had just released The Hammering Process and were touring alongside P.O.D. and Project 86. With such a strong step forward into the new millennium, it felt like they would only continue to soar. However, a few short years later, they disbanded, leaving many of their fans with the stark realization that even giants can eventually fall. Fortunately, this turned out to be only a short hiatus. In 2008, they digitally released two new songs and announced that they would be working on a new album.

Living Sacrifie - The Infinite Order

Now, at the beginning of the new decade, Living Sacrifice has returned to reclaim their place in metal with the release of The Infinite Order.

Certainly their finest work to date, The Infinite Order starts off strong and continues to mezmerize throughout its 47 minute run time. The polished, melodic feel is unique enough to stand on its own, but still carries the weight of the classic Living Sacrifice sound. This definitavely marks a new chapter in the band’s journey.

Songs like Rules of Engagement and Organized Lie provide a solid feel for the grooves and breakdowns that Living Sacrifice is known for while Love Forgives and Apostasy show the new, melodic direction the band is headed toward. This musical diversity provides a great aural experience for all metal fans. You are furiously swept into the breakdowns and then gently moved with a melodic drive that continues to rattle around in your head long after you have turned the music off.

Whether you are a long time fan, or just happened to stumble across them, Living Sacrifice demands your attention. They are back with a passion and this album shows how dedicated they are to once again dominating the Christian metal scene!
