Propagandhi / Sacrifice – “Anthem and Technocracy” split 7″
This is one, from 2010, that slipped under (my) radar: Sacrifice were a Canadian thrash metal band that were active in the early 80s, and reformed in 2006 (apparently they were ranked alongside fellow Canadians Voivod, Exciter, Annihihilator and Razor, back in the day). Here they attempt a cover of a Rush song. Propahgandhi, on the other side, we all know about, except who among us knew that they recorded a version of Corrosion Of Conformity’s “Technocracy” back in 2010? One of the (if not thee) pinnacle moments in 80’s crossover, Propagandhi’s version is pretty true to the original, capturing it’s magnificent technicality and bombastic speed – one of the few bands that could successfully pull off such an ambitious cover.
