        Sanktuary kicked things off with two back-to-back EPs – 2009′s self-titled release and 2010′s Black Magic Brew – and soon followed that up with a massive move from Whitehorse, Yukon to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

       After touring the country following their epic relocation and being faced with a major blow in Toronto that saw their van and nearly all their gear get stolen, Sanktuary turned things around with a third EP in 2011, Tundrastruck (a 3 way split with Black Moor and Metallian), followed by them signing to Spread the Metal Records, which sent them all the way back to Whitehorse to record 'Something Fierce'.

    Sanktuary – Something Fierce (2013) (Spread The Metal Records)

    Release Date: July 2, 2013
    Label: Spread The Metal Records
    Distribution: 24 Hour
    CATOLOG #: STM009
    UPC CODE #: 62095346192 2
    ISRC Codes: TBD

    R.I.Y.L. = Evile, 3 Inches of Blood, Havok, Mantic Ritual, Metal Church, Annihilator, Exciter, Cauldron

    “Drawing on elements from traditional metal and early thrash-, speed-, and power metal, Sanktuary’s music is quite melodic and considerably easy to listen to and take in. There are plenty of all out rock ‘n’ metal guitar histrionic, and the mildly Geddy Lee-ish vocals actually fit nicely into the picture…Capturing the best of thrash as it was in its nascent era, Sanktuary’s “Something Fierce” should appeal to fans of thrash, speed, and traditional metal alike.” 4/5 – MetalMusicArchives

    “‘Hailing from the farthest reaches of Canada, The Yukon, Sanktuary are a band hot on the heels of their contemporaries laying down a mix of classic metal, power metal (US) and thrash all in one debut album release that is presented in a very nice digipak format…This is a mix of great musical genres, delivering a real exuberant energy and clear passion, Sanktuary are certainly worth checking out.’” – Brutalism

    “My first impression of Something Fierce was that this was the kind of album I would have saved my allowance for. It represents everything that is good and exciting about thrash and doesn’t sacrifice musical quality for ego or showmanship. It just thrashes, from beginning to end. The best tracks on this album are those that go for sheer speed—check out “Thrill of the Kill,” “Screeching for Vengeance,” and “Fire in the Sky”—for the way these guys dive in to the speed and energy, the thrill, of the music itself. These are good thrash songs, contributions to a beloved musical style, not karaoke-style imitations.” – SeofTranquility

    “I think the best description of “Something Fierce” would be to say that it’s a time machine: It’s a non-stop flight to 1984, where we can enjoy the biggest jewels of thrash.” – GoetiaMetal

    “Something Fierce is exactly what this album is, Sanktuary has recorded one of the best  Traditional Canadian Heavy Metal Album that I have listened to in a long ass time.” – KingstonMusicReviews

    “Sanktuary have it all on this release and they manage to create a sound that combines vintage thrash riffs, melodic/speed and power metal passages in great abundance. This is a fantastic debut and if you enjoy the sounds of past eras like classic thrash, early 80’s speed metal and the NWOBHM then this might be for you. Something Fierce is no mere throwback, but a testament to the elements that forged such great sub-genres in the first place.” – The Metal Pit

    “recent transplants from the Yukon to Nova Scotia and I’m pretty sure they didn’t do much but play music before heading south. Thrash with a thick coating of traditional metal, ‘Raise The Flag’ is a crowd pleaser and having heard them play it live, I know this to be true. I can’t wait for these guys to put out a full length!” – Earshot! (Review of Tundrastruck split EP)

    “Raise The Flag is faithful track number two. Now without wanting to compare, I hear a little of early Metallica even a little Pound for Pound Anvil in this track. Without a doubt this is a beer drinking metal anthem. It makes me feel like slamming my text book against my vandalized desk and telling Ms.Sulley to “Fuck off, art history blows!” – Hard And Heavy Zine (Review of Tundrastruck split EP)

    “I was excited to hear Sanktuary as they are a thrash metal band from the Yukon, and hell who ever hears of metal bands from the North. So that in itself right there is a big point of interest to get you excited…I do know that the opening track “Speed Demon” totally sticks in my head, and yes it sounds exactly like you expect it to sound. On their myspace page they have a thing that says just fucking metal and I think that really sums up everything you need to know about Sanktuary. If you like thrash then don’t hesitate listen to this as soon as you possibly can.” – Left Hip Mag (Review of Sanktuary EP 2009)

    “The penultimate band last night was another Halifax speed metal band, that being Black Moor’s good friends Sanktuary, and though their sounds were similar in genre, Sanktuary stood out on their own as well! Compared to Black Moor, Sanktuary’s sound wasn’t as varied, taking more cues from speed metal in general, so it was more straightforward, but still very relentless and entertaining! Alan Binger’s vocals were really nice, ranging from a suitable heavy metal tone to some really melodic patches and even a couple falsetto notes here and there! He and Cole Hume rocked our faces off with their crushing metal sounds, and Anders Grasholm fit perfectly with his proficient drum skills! Though their originals were really entertaining and full of great old school metal, fans of Metallica were pleased to hear them cover “The Four Horsemen” and “Motorbreath” at the end of their set, which was really cool! Though I was getting worn out by this point, I recognized the talent of Sanktuary, and hopefully they come back to the Soo really soon!” – The Sault Metal Scene (Concert Review)

    “Sanktuary delivers a retro speed/thrash style…”Raise the Flag” is a catchy and upbeat speed metal track” – Metal Music Archives (Review of Tundrastruck split EP)

    “Originally from Whitehorse you have to wonder if that adds to the speed in which they play. Being cold all the time in their youth must have made them play quickly to stay warm. To be serious this is a great fast moving song (Raise The Flag) that is true thrash in every sense of the word.” – WeLoveMetal.com (Review from Tundrastruck spilt EP)

    “Raise the Flag converted me with it’s rhythmically interesting grooves–I like that they don’t do everything cliche, and I detect some stonerrock influence here, especially in the outro. Gives your neck a break and shifts gears from headbanging to headbobbing, something i’m all for. Also a wicked guitar solo, and shouted gang vocals, right on boys! The performance is technically great,” – Noisography (Review from Tundrastruck split EP)

    This is raw Thrash-influenced Metal as it should be. The demo has a real live feel about it. The guitar chugs away, the drums are battered & the singer grunts far more than he shrieks. BMB is a beer driven & enthusiastic romp in four songs. It does everything it says on the tin.” – Pulp Metal Mag (Review of Black Magic Brew EP 2010)

  • SEDUCED BY SUICIDE release "Enlightened Dawn of Death", free download

    SEDUCED BY SUICIDE released "Enlightened Dawn of Death", the first of a series of singles that will be released in the next few months. The new song, like the other band releases, is available for download at www.seducedbysuicide.com

    About the series of singles Earth, the vocalist and multi-instrumentist of Seduced by Suicide comments: "I recorded several other songs with the idea to release an album, but during the process I noticed that all of them, in a way or another, needed a certain attention to actually have life, something that would not happen that way. Record a song or even an album isn't a hard task, even if takes time, but to give life to a song, that requires more than just do everything technically flawless. It's necessary to completely give yourself to it, reach wherever you thought was your limit and go beyond, until it sounds as good in your player as it sounds in your mind. Although rewarding, it is quite exhausting and when you do it alone, it works better if you concentrate in a single song."

    Recently Earth released a new Blood Tears' song and is working on the recordings and production of metal bands like Eridanus and Hate Handles in Estúdio Nitro, his audio and design studio

    A darker and more mature effort, Psychonaut brings forth Fatality's trademark energy and commitment to drunken mayhem. Tracks like 'Thoughts Collide' and 'Before The Collapse' delve deep into the sodden minds of their creators, bubbling with the strange alchemy of pop culture. Psychonaut is an exploration of the inner landscape of the mind, where addled thoughts and horror-polluted dreams are held up to musical scrutiny. Monstrous, ambitious, and sardonically funny as ever, Fatality are taking their unique sound and boundless energy to the next level.

    About: Toronto, Canada’s high-energy, modern thrash monsters Fatality have been cranking out wise-cracking, beer-drenched nightmares together since 2003. Known for their wild, riotous live performances and their peerless work ethic, they have been independently booking and promoting their own shows, creating great merch, touring North America, and making some great tunes along the way. Few bands embody the DIY spirit as fully as Fatality consistently do, and no other bands have as much fun working their asses off.

    Fatality’s debut effort, Beers From The Grave, was an irreverent, horror-themed album that eschewed seriousness in favour of hard living and good times. Decibel Magazine quipped that, on Beers From The Grave, “solos fly with reckless abandon, the bass is audible and practically so are the beers being cracked open. These guys must have awesome parties.” Hellbound.ca stated that Fatality are “a bundle of crass, explosive, obnoxiously positive energy spewing beer and shrapnel.” Part homage to classic zombie apocalypse horror and part retro-thrash ruckus, Beers From The Grave was an exciting, riotously messy debut.

    After supporting Beers From The Grave with East coast Canadian tours, and being invited to share the stage with the likes of Exodus, Municipal Waste, Holy Grail and Razor, the thrash rockers went back to the studio and emerged with still more new material. Three rough-and-tumble, irresistibly catchy singles — “T.F.E.S.”, “Uppercut” and “Hammerfist” — were bundled together as a free EP. While most bands would have simply released a free record and called it a day, Fatality supported their singles with North American tours, winning hearts, destroying livers and splitting eardrums along the way. After those adventures, Fatality went into a period of hiatus. They emerged from this creative cocoon and re-instated their original drummer, Mason LeVon (brother to guitarist and vocalist Spencer LeVon, who replaced longtime friend and skinsman Andrew Suarez), and new musical vision. In early 2012, the band began writing a brand-new full-length, 'Psychonaut', unquestionably their most ambitious project to date.

    FATALITY is:

    Eytan Gordon - Lead Guitar

    Spencer LeVon - Lead Vocals/Guitar

    Adam Zlotnik - Bass Guitar

    Mason LeVon – Drums
