Corners of Sanctuary / Bio

CORNERS OF SANCTUARY, a New Wave of Traditional American Heavy Metal (NWoTAHM) band from Philadelphia, formed in 2011. Since their debut, COS has released three full-length albums including "Breakout" 2012 with March Baby Media, "Harlequin" 2013 with Pure Steel Records Germany, and "Axe to Grind" 2013 under La Mazakuata Records Mexico. In 2014, Pure Steel Records re-released "Axe to Grind" under their label flag. A handful of promotional EPs have also been released by the band, including "Epilogue, "Merry Metal Xmas", "Carry the Cross" and most recently "Prelude to War - the Japan Demo".

In September 2015, Corners of Sanctuary signed with Metalizer Records in Germany for the release of their fourth album "Metal Machine" on October 31, 2015. The album will also be distributed as a vinyl release in early 2016.

Corners of Sanctuary guitarist Mick Michaels made the following comment:

"Corners of Sanctuary is very excited to now be apart of the Metalizer Records family. Having our fourth album, "Metal Machine", released under the Metalizer label offers us an incredible opportunity to reach new heights. The support has been inspiring. We feel this union will be a great fit for both the music and our style. We look forward to what lies ahead...The road before us is wide open and we are ready to drop the pedal to the Metal on this machine!"

Metalizer Records added the following comment:

"METALIZER RECORDS is very proud to announce that the great CORNERS OF SANCTUARY have signed with us for the release of their new killer album "Metal Machine"! This one will make your ears bleed if you´re into traditional US power metal with slight Judas Priest influences! Stay tuned for the METAL MACHINE!!"

ONLINE METAL PROMO commented: "Corners of Sanctuary - "Metal Machine" features 11 brand new tracks of razor sharp and memorable heavy metal songs from Philadelphia's own Kings of Steel."

The album was mastered by guitarist / producer Stu "The Hammer" Marshall (Death Dealer / Blasted to Static / Empires of Eden / Ex-Dungeon) at his Frontier Studio in Sydney, Australia.

Look for the band on tour.

Hard hitting, head banging, straight forward Heavy Metal is the mission of Corners of Sanctuary - nothing less will do. Old School is back with a vengeance.... Metal has returned – C.O.S. & ROLL!
