“Sanctuary is an epic rock aria of a song. The juxtaposition between Arminta's mellifluous timbre and the metal vocals brings an extra dimension to the texture of this song and is further augmented by the shower of dolorous melodic minor broken scale patterns and accomplished axe grinding. Look forward to seeing you live
