Like in Razed in Black's debut CD ("Shrieks, Laments and Anguished Cries"), "Sacrificed" opens with moaning, this time by the all-in-one singer/guitarist/etc., Romell Regulacion, who is supposedly being "Whipped," though you may have to strain your ears to hear it. This is just the beginning of a S&M theme heard throughout the CD, especially in songs like "Lust" [#8] and back-to-back tracks #3 ("Master")--"Beg to your Master"--and #4 ("I Worship You")--"Tie me down I'm helpless / Blindfolded and gagged / Force the blade against my throat / Lick the blood against the edge." Aside from the physical pain, there are several songs that deal with more inner demons, but most of them tend to lean, again, towards masochism. There's even a good cover of Metallica's song, "Damage, Inc" on track #9. Although tracks #1 ("Whipped"), 5 ("Snooze"), 7 ("Guilty"), and 14 ("Are You There?") are just fillers, they're all enjoyable--Romell getting whipped in track #1, beating his alarm clock in #5, and making an unanswered phone call in the last track on here. Overall: this was a terrific CD. If you're a Razed in Black fan--or are just looking for something different in the goth/industrial vein--then "Sacrificed" is certainly worth buying.
