REVIEW: Blame The Sacred – 'The Path' EP

Blame The Sacred, a 5-piece rock band from Doncaster, South Yorkshire are set to release their new EP 'The Path' on March 27th 2020 which follows their 2018 debut EP 'Life Or Death'.

‘I Walk Alone’ has catchy driving riffs to open it with swaggering vocals and instruments to accompany. Vocalist Danny Porter has very authoritative vocals that add extra power to this hard-hitting opener, making for a brilliant start.
Changing direction ‘Hollow Ground’ is largely stripped back with melodic guitars with softer emotive vocals. Although it is slower-paced it is equally as strong especially through its passion and execution adding more depth.

There is no shortage of energy and enthusiasm from the whole band which translates wonderfully in their music and all members get their moment to shine particularly …

Opening track 'Dive Within' is powerful and fast throughout with quick fierce vocal bursts matching the speed and tone of the instruments wonderfully. It ends on a ambient beautiful note and gives you everything and more to keep you gripped.

Soaring single 'Beyond The Horizon' features endless resonant and striking guitars which makes it exhilarating throughout, as well as memorable clean vocals in the chorus, making a nice contrast to the harsher vocals and acts as a brilliant representative track for the band and album. It is solid and slick with technical instrumentation and tonnes of depth, something the band thrives on. This is one to stick on repeat.

'Ode To Life' opens with some strong and prominent bass and great le…

Together with Josse de Maesschalk(aka WAANZIN), BufferState has now released their first music video.

The song is an archetype of the band’s very particular, uncompromising sound.

The lyrical theme is aggressive at first sight, very militaristic and us-versus-them. Having most fun when being creative, the story has been rewritten from scratch to the same theme for this video. Still, the images of the video match the feeling of the original lyrics and, of course, the flow of the song.



BufferState is extremely proud of this cooperation with the up-and-coming movie talent of Josse de Maesschalk(aka WAANZIN). Creativity, community, engaging with other artists, that’s what it’s abou…
