Sanctuary Unveils Cover Art for New Album

SANCTUARY - The Year The Sun Died

Sanctuary has just posted their new cover art for the forthcoming album, The Year The Sun Died, due to be released on October 14th (October 6th in Europe).

Yeah, this is gonna be a sick album. You can already tell.

The artwork was created by Travis Smith specifically for the legends hailing from Seattle.

Who else is fucking stoked for this?!

Track Listing:

1. Arise and Purify
2. Let The Serpent Follow Me
3. Exitium (Anthem of the Living)
4. Question Existence Fading
5. I Am Low
6. Frozen
7. One Final Day (Sworn to Believe)
8. The World is Wired
9. The Dying Age
10. Ad Vitam Aeternam
11. The Year the Sun Died


Sanctuary was formed in Seattle in 1985; the band released two studio albums on Epic Records, Refuge Denied in 1987 and Into the Mirror Black in 1989. Worldwide touring with the likes of Megadeth, Warlock, Fates Warning and Death Angel, just to name a few, followed each album. Singer Warrel Dane's sky-high vocals combined with guitarist Lenny Rutledge's more mature take on classic thrash riffs separated Sanctuary from the throes of metal bands struggling to get noticed at the time. Simply put, Sanctuary offered something fresh sounding in the muddled world of '80s thrash.

They have a few live dates coming up (though none for this area as of this writing):

Sanctuary live:
Nov. 14 - Seattle, WA - S7
Nov. 15 - Vancouver, BC - Rickshaw
Nov. 16 - Portland, OR - Hawthorne
Nov. 19 - Anaheim, CA - The Grove

Nov. 21 - Phoenix, AZ - Club Red
Nov. 22 - San Diego, CA - Ramona Mainstage
