Sacros ("The Sacred") was a Chilean rock band inspired by the spiritual passion and veneration for the great gods of South America, such as Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent, god of the ancient Mayas and Viracocha, Lord of Tiahuanaku in the Andes mountains. Sacros identified with these gods from around the planet, with the energy of love and devotion for creativity. Sacros recorded this 1973 debut (their only record) on the state label IRT, and the production was destroyed by the military. Only a very few copies survived the destruction. The music goes in the same direction as Los Jaivas, Los Blops and El Congreso (all from Chile) and Lula Cortez from Brazil. It has great 12-string Rickenbacker sounds, effects, compelling vocals and rhythms with an experimental touch. You could easily call this one of the rarest albums from Latin America, since only a handful of copies survived. Sacros were a strange musical combination of country-rock mixed with Latin American flavor. They were loved by many. May the gods bless you all. Musicians: Hernan Valdovinos (bass and vocals); Patricio Panussis (guitar & vocals); Tomas R. Herrera (percussion).
