Far Away from the Sun – LP/CD reissue

Announced by Century Media Records, February 26

SACRAMENTUM’s majestic and epic 1996 debut album “Far Away From The Sun” – finally available on vinyl and CD again!

This new edition of the Swedish Black/Death Metal masterpiece has been newly re-mastered from original mix by legendary producer Dan Swanö. Both the 180gr LP and the new CD version feature a bonus track, available for the first time on vinyl – a great sounding 1996 demo version of the song “Awaken Chaos” which later appeared on SACRAMENTUM’s 2nd album “The Coming Of Chaos” (1997). The 6 page LP booklet features new artwork by Necrolord, rare photos and liner notes by journalist Olivier Zoltar Badin (Zero Tolerance).

The pre-order for the re-issue will start on March 6, 2020!

New official website

This is the official new website for Sacramentum. What is published here comes directly from the band.

The focus on the website at the moment is the album “Far Away from the Sun” due to a number of “reunion shows” during 2020 where we play the album in its entirety. 2021 is the 25th year since the album was released and it is possible that we will continue with a few selected shows.

But there are other plans too, read more in this post.

The Journey Continues

Hail the ever growing Northern Darkness!

The ancient and infernal spirit of Sacramentum has been dormant for two decades, In its hypnotic and hysterical sleep it has traveled far beyond human comprehension. It has been sleeping in the Shadow of Oblivion and gathered strength and power to erect the black pantheon of Sacramentum.

Now the spirit has awakened!

The Journey continues in 2020 as one of the headlining acts of Netherlands Deathfest and Maryland Deathfest. But this is just the beginning! A new masterpiece of true dark art is to be unleashed upon the earth! Entitled Shadow of Oblivion which was the name of an early painting made by Anders Brolycke in 1994 and also a part of the layout on the Finis Malorum EP.
This dare we say is the follow up to Far Away from the Sun. In close collaboration with my long time brother of the mighty Grotesque/Liers in wait, Necrolord has begun preparations for a new stunning painting. The artwork will reflect the music just as it did on Far Away from the Sun.

For two decades we have waited for the spirit to awaken… Time has come…
Blood Shall Be Spilled!!!

Mori ego adoremus.
