This article is about the physical items released with the single. For the song itself, see Sweet Sacrifice (Song).

The Sweet Sacrifice single was commercially released in Germany on May 25th, 2007. Released in 2 parts; a Basic version and a Maxi. Both of which feature photos by Amy V. Cooper. There are no known releases for the rest of the world, except for the release in Greece. The UK was supposed to release both parts on May 8th, but all UK Sweet Sacrifice singles were recalled (according to ebay sellers) and never released. As Germany is the only producer of the release, it is sure to become one of the rarest of the Evanescence singles as it has always been somewhat difficult to acquire. It is assumed that the simultaneous lineup changes (John and Rocky leaving the band) are to blame for the lack of promotion for the single.

Radio Mix

A Radio Mix of the song can be found on the 4-track Maxi single and the press kit. It is essentially the same as the album version, however there is little to no programming on all vocals making them noticeably more prominent. With the instrumentation, the guitars are more prominent throughout, though most noticeably so during the intro. The overall song is simpler, rougher and harder than the album version.
