Sacrifice (1984-1993): a Thrash Metal band from Canada.


acrifice formed in 1985 in Toronto, Canada, with Rob Urbinati (vocals/guitar), Joe Rico (guitar), Scott Watts (bass) and Gus Pynn (drums) under the major influences of Black Sabbath, Metallica, Thin Lizzy and Slayer.

After the releases of their first two albums Torment in Fire (1985) and Forward to Termination (1987) on the Toronto based record label 'Fringe', their next album Soldiers of Misfortune (1991) maintained their old school Thrash style that has remained forever popular in that area, but without the occultist lyrics and brutal imagery. Shortly after it's release, disputes and quarrels came up between Pynn and the other's and he left the act and was replaced by Michael Rosenthal; a tour with Monster Voodoo Machine followed soon after.

In 1993 Apocalypse Inside was released on 'Metal Blade' records, the record promised to fulfill the band's desires of stardom and successes, and achived that goal in a partial victory by giving them a cult following. Watts would soon after leave the group with Kevin Wimberley taking over as the new bass player. Unfortunately his career didn't last very long because the act split in early 1994 after touring in northern America with Death and Gorefest, the members moving on: Urbaniti and Wimberley joined  Interzone, while Rosenthal went to Hunnytruck, while Rico moved to Detroit and formed a hardcore act entitled Trust Denied.
