‘Sacred Warrior’ – ‘Waiting In Darkness’, Video Available


Classic melodic, progressive hard rock/metal band Sacred Warrior has posted an in-the-studio type video for the title track of their forthcoming album Waiting in Darkness, on vocals their new vocalist Eli Prinsen. The video can be seen below.

The band was formed out of a general market metal band known as Nomad, which formed in 1985. Subsequent to the conversion of guitarist Bruce Swift to Christianity, he lead fellow band members Tony Velasquez and Rey Parra. He also led Rick Macias, who had been a bouncer at a nightclub. Steve Watkins joined the band as bassist in 1988 and Sacred Warrior was formed. Rick Macias left the band in 1989 and was replaced by John Johnson for the 1989 – 1990 tour. John left the band in 1990.  Joe Petit joined the band in 1991 and continues as keyboardist today. Sacred Warrior broke up in 1994 and then reformed in 2000 to do a Cornerstone Reunion Show. Rey moved to Florida and the rest of the guys stayed in Chicago making it difficult to continue writing music.  Sacred Warrior re-formed in 2008 and is now touring again.

The band commented: We are finally putting together what will be one of the heaviest CD’s yet. It is hard yet still has the Warrior feel to it and don’t be thinking that Sacred Warrior is going to wimp out on the lyrics. We think that today more that ever we need to bring the Gospel of Jesus to the forefrontWe are currently recording the music at Gathering Storm Media in Aurora, IL.
