Sacred Chao was the short-lived continuation of the German
in a sense, as former
vocalist Toto Bergmann and former drummer Atomic Steif
decided to form a new band some time after the demise of LD.
The one record, a self-titled 4-track EP, is a bit odd,
not really thrash at all as one might expect.
Instead the style is an odd sort of speed metal, with almost
progressive guitar work from some guy named Fred and a
strange rambling bass line from Lemmie.
Toto's vocals aren't nearly as uncontrolled as in his early
LD days, as he improved greatly and sounded in fine form here.
Too bad this band didn't catch on, the songs here were quite
original and could have been the framework for a solid career.
