With their new album, Out Of The Darkness, just around the corner, Sacred Mother Tongue were raring to go on the first night of Hammerfest 2013.

Sacred Mother Tongue are something else. The fact that they are still mostly overlooked by the kind of obnoxious people who need to shout about “how good the emerging metal scene is in Britain at the moment” is bewildering. Stylistically they marry clean and aggressive vocals in a way that Rise to Remain could only ever dream of, as well as having the songs to back this up. The stuff off their upcoming album Out of the Darkness sounds like it’ll only cement this fact. Additionally, their live show tonight is proof of how the last nine years have hardened them into an unfaltering and aggressive visual proposition.
