On Friday 14th April 2000, the controversial film Sacred Flesh finally premiered at the ABC Piccadilly cinema for a two week stint, before being shown at cinemas across the country. It was delayed as the BBFC decided on whether to grant a certificate for screening, or to ban it altogether! Finally, with a few edits they gave it an 18 certificate.
The soundtrack was written by Steve Pittis’ Band Of Pain, creating a very dark, brooding atmosphere to compliment Nigel Wingrove’s film. Originally with a 16-page booklet depicting explicit scenes from the film, pressure from the distributors forced the artwork into a revised 4-page version. Sacred Flesh is dark journey into realms of mental anguish and repression; a very Black Ambient soundtrack. This is Band Of Pain working in the medium to which its most suited. An incredible album with massive demand from both film and music distributors alike.
