Its early 90's when by accident I came across this album that was being played in my friends cassette player (I just dated myself) and the song "The Third War
" was playing and I was immediately glued to the music. I asked my friend about this cassette which he later let me burn a copy and from that day on, I was the biggest Sanctuary fan. Sanctuary's music can be described like a cross between early Helloween
and Mercyful Fate
During a long time I've had this album and I still play it every once in a while and still get goose bumps with this very underrated album by a criminally underrated band. The opening "Battle Angels
" puts you on notice right away of the metal epic-ness you are about to experience. Next
is "Termination Force" which a very competitive follow up but not the best tune by far in this album. Warrel Dane
's vocals sound insanely close to King Diamond
's high falsetto, but more natural and manlier (no offense to K.D. intended).
The album has a lot of highlights but my favorite's are; Battle Angels
for my Sins,Sanctuary, White Rabbit
and Third War
This album is an instant classic in any fans collection and hopefully we will soon be listening the the a new Sanctuary album despite the demise of Nevermore.
