Release Date: February 24, 2017
In 2011, SANCTUARY celebrated its live comeback, performed at high profile festivals such as Wacken, Metalcamp, Bloodstock as well as on the 70.000 Tons Of Metal and Barge To Hell cruises. “The Year The Sun Died”, released in 2014, marked SANCTUARY’s very well received comeback album presented live on tours through Europe, Japan, and the United States. While currently hard at work on the much anticipated new studio album, SANCTUARY now unveil the previously announced “Inception”, which offers the unearthed and restored 1986 demo recordings done prior to “Refuge Denied”.
Guitarist Lenny Rutledge explains: “For me personally, I just wanted fans to be able to hear proper versions of the demos. They had a certain energy that was captured during the early days, maybe even more so than “Refuge Denied”. It’s no secret that you can find these on the internet but the quality is horrible. I think most people are under the impression that these are remastered versions of “Refuge…”, but this is all a prequel!”
With several festivals already booked for 2017, a new album in the works, “Inception” being released, this shall be the year when past and future of SANCTUARY unite. Look forward to the next assault of the soldiers of steel!
