Reactivated Arizona thrashers SACRED REICH have unveiled the winner of their recently announced YouTube video competition. Watch the winning clip below. Bassist/vocalist Phil Rind says, "Thanks to all those who posted. We especially like the SACRED REICH covers." He adds, "I think I might ask Wiley [Arnett, SACRED REICH guitarist] to post a video lesson of how to play 'The American Way' riff because no one ever gets it right. It's goofy little riff but it always throws everyone off. It's not a power chord. You bar the A and D strings on the second then first frets. Try it."
Metal Blade Records released a three-disc deluxe reissue of SACRED REICH's "Ignorance" and "Surf Nicaragua" in June 2007. Two CDs are included in the package (both remastered!) as well as a bonus DVD. The package, which was made available in Europe only, includes liner notes by Rind and Malcolm Dome (Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, Total Rock Radio) and an extensive booklet with loads of previously unpublished photos.
