Sacrilege Bio:

Originally formed in 1984 by guitarist Damian Thompson and vocalist Lynda "Tam" Simpson Sacrilege is a female-fronted, originally Hardcore Punk, later Thrash Metal/Doom Metal band from the Midlands region of England. Despite having played relatively few gigs during their original existence, Sacrilege is recognized as an important band; both as an influence on later crust punk/thrash metal and doom metal bands and as an example of the blending of hardcore punk, radical politics, and thrash/death metal that occurred during the mid-1980s, making Sacrilege one of the prototypical 'crust'(that term not coined then) punk/metal bands of the time.

In July 2014, Sacrilege announced work on a brand new album, tentativley titled Emptiness Intoxication after a 25-year hiatus. The line up includes its founding members,Tam & Damian as well as Frank Healy (bass)and Spike T. Smith (drums); it is the same line up that recorded Turn Back Trilobite, the band's last official release in 1989.
