Power thrash champions Sanktuary hail from the harsh and blisteringly cold of the deep far North of Canada’s Yukon Territory situating themselves in the city of Whitehorse (pretty far north, like the Siberia of Canada eh!). They have been trekking across the country for the past 6 years to bring their fierce and dynamic high-speed riffs, catchy hooks, and belted out lyrics to the metal crowds.
2016 sees the band’s return with their sophomore album Winter’s Doom set for release on January 22nd, 2016. The album features seven killer high-speed, breakneck thrash metal tracks inspired by the Yukon’s far North they call home along with other issues such as politics, technology, etc. “In the title track and album cover, we portray ourselves as heavy metal warriors thriving in a habitat where most would perish instantaneously. That’s our homeland, the Yukon,” comments the band. Stay tuned for what Sanktuary has to offer for fans!
