Sacramento – “Sacramento” EP (2009)


Label : Mechanix Records

Review By Tony Cannella

From Chile, the band Sacramento has recently issued their debut 6-track demo. The band is fronted by the impressive vocals of Laura Vargas and some all around good musicians to create a consistently entertaining debut. The CD opens with the best of the 6-tracks (in my opinion), “Die Alone”. This is an energetic straight forward track, showcasing what an excellent voice that Laura Vargas possesses. The song also features some rough male vocals on the chorus. “Forsaken” and “Left Hollow” keeps things going in a heavy direction, while the beautiful ballad “Save Me My Son” slows the tempo down a bit. Among the 6-songs, Sacramento covers the Megadeth track “Trust”. I will admit that it is a bit strange to here a feminine voice replacing the famous Dave Mustaine sneering vocals but I found myself enjoying this version as well. For the most part, this is a faithful (and very cool) rendition of the track. The final song, “Fallecer” is actually a different version of the track “Die Alone”, sung in Spanish. While listening to this debut, I had to remind myself that this is just a demo. The sound quality is excellent and the songs are very well written and performed. No complaints here.
