Corners Of Sanctuary, Metal Machine, 2015
It might be the first time ever that I would only need three words to describe an album. And these three words are Traditional Heavy Metal. So despite one of the most extensive press information efforts ever, this is going to be a short one.
Corners Of Sanctuary (COS) are a 4 piece band from the USA and pride themselves in being old school. This is already their 4th album, yet the first one I heard. And for me it is a tough ride. The sound is thick, bordering into muddy and old school indeed. The music is strictly sticking to their beliefs, no surprises. True metal as it were.
So if traditional heavy metal is your thing, you will probably dig this a lot. Me, I prefer more adventure and diversity.
