|Sacrificio is CRIMINAL''s ninth full length studio album; a twelve track bludgeoning that harks back to their roots - both literally and metaphorically. With a rich history behind them, and the future unwritten before them, CRIMINAL have delivered Sacrificio - an album that could only have been made by these four musicians at this point in time.
Whilst writing for Sacrificio, CRIMINAL''s home country of Chile saw a social uprising that has impacted on the lives of Chileans in immeasurable ways. Protests against corruption, inequality and the poor standard of living saw citizens take to the streets to make themselves heard. From secondary school children coordinating campaigns against public transport price hikes, through to thousands of arrests, dozens of deaths and reports of human rights abuses - this estallido social is a marker in time for Chileans around the globe. The civil action and vehement anger seeped into the creative process of the four members of CRIMINAL - three of them being Chilean. Although there is a deep personal connection to the lyrical content, the events unfold from the perspective of a spectator - albeit one who has also experienced tyrannical leadership and witnessed the divide between ordinary citizens and the social elite.
