Welcome to EvO:R Entertainment
  •  The Bill Carrera CD Reviews

    Welcome to the EvO:R Carrera Reviews Section.
    I would like to take a few minutes to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Bill Carrera and I am the new music reviewer here at Evor. I wanted to let you know a little about my thoughts on music. It's important to let the people that I review know how I think of and listen to music.
    First of all I believe that if your music sucks then the world should know about it! After all, you have the nerve to charge as much for your stuff as the majors do so it better be pretty damn good, and if it is, I'll also tell the world. I'll hold nothing back!

     Review of Resurrection -
    by sacred Rite


    As a reviewer I get a hundreds of CD's coming across my desk for review. Most of them I can't get through the first 30 seconds of a song without skipping to the next one. We get 250 CD's to review every month and I only approve about 10-15 for final review on the website. Even with that high a screening process we still review some material that is sub-par just to have something to fill our section.

    Not the case this time. The new CD from Sacred Rite has me believing that an indie band can produce material in line (or better) then the major label acts. Not only in performance, but in studio production and packaging. The CD cover was professionally created by the legendary science fiction and fantasy artist Michael Whelan and makes a statement when you view it (simply click the CD cover below to see a larger viewing). Resurrection is the answer to the lost 80's rock/metal, only better! Taking a page from King's X, Deep Purple (the Steve Morse era), Gun's n Rose's and The Lynch Mob just to name a few.

    Resurrection is the first new album from SACRED RITE in 20 years. Written, performed, and produced by the three original surviving members of SACRED RITE - Mark Kaleiwahea, Jim Caterine, and Peter Crane - with drum parts made from samples of sounds created by original drummer Kevin Lum, "Resurrection" is a return to the Classic Power Metal sound that made SACRED RITE popular in the '80s with albums like "THE RITUAL" and "IS NOTHING SACRED" except it raises the bar beyond anything I've heard in the last 20 years.

    The CD has the same energy as "Appetite for Distruction" or anything Metalica.
    Yes, it's that good!

    The guitar tandum of Mark Kaleiwahea and Jimmie Dee Caterine are near flawless as they trade licks and harmonize with each other in much the same way as the classic duos of the 80's. Mark's vocals are pure rock/metal magic as he shows his range and power with every song and Peter Crane is a solid bass player and the band allowed him to prove it. Check out "High Society" to make my point about Peters playing.

    This CD is a real masterpiece of rock/metal and it will raise the bar beyond reach for many up and coming rockers. It took 20 years to make this CD and it was worth the wait. My hat is off to this band, they simply blow me away.

    Samples from the CD:
    /I DIDN'T MEAN TO DO IT /RESURRECTION /HIGH SOCIETY /
    /LONG WAY DOWN /CRY /SCHIZOPHRENIA /THE PHOENIX/
    /THE END OF TIME/

    Conclusion: This was the finest rock CD I have listened to (including major label acts) in 20 years! The production was amazing and the individual performances where clearly a cut above the rest. Sacred Rite has done the impossible. They have come back from the grave and resurrected the rock genre! This is the most important rock/metal CD to come along in years.
    I dare any band to submit a better rock/metal CD!
