Living Sacrifice is a Christian heavy metal band that formed in September 1989 in Little Rock, Arkansas, U.S. The band has released seven studio albums, out of which the first three were recorded under R.E.X. Records with their original vocalist Darren Johnson as a more thrash metal and death metal oriented band. The band evolved into a metalcore style beginning with Reborn (1997) under Solid State Records with the original guitarist Bruce Fitzhugh on vocals. In sound they became similar to, but still distinct from Sepultura, while others have made comparisons to early Meshuggah. In 2003 the group split up, and later their label, Solidstate, released their best-of album, In Memoriam (2005). In 2008 Living Sacrifice reformed and released a two-song digital only single called "Death Machine". They then began working on The Infinite Order which was released on January 26, 2010.
