Renowned South African guitarist and singer Albert Frost releases his new album Sacred Sound today. The album which sees Albert returning to his heavier rock roots is packed with riff driven rock anthems, reflecting the trials and tribulations he has gone through since recording began back in 2019 with producer Theo Crous.
From not being able to gig due to lockdown to cutting the tendon on right hand which could have led to the end of his career. While there is an angrier edge to it, Albert maintains his bluesy afro-pop sensibilities throughout the album.
