       Montreal, QC metal band DISSENSION is premiering their latest track 'Graceless Death' from their forthcoming debut album 'Of Time And Chronic Disease' along with an interview in french with vocalist/ guitarist Nathan Afilalo on Canadian metal podcast Ondes Chocs at the following link.

    Capsule Ondes Chocs - (Dissension) - https://soundcloud.com/ondeschocs/capsule-ondes-chocs-30-aou-t

    'Of Time And Chronic Disease' is being released digitally worldwide on September 10th through Believe Digital along with it being sold physically on vinyl. 

    Sharing the stage with international heavyweights like Tyr, Threat Signal and Cryptopsy plus performing in front of their hometown crowd at Heavy MTL 2011 along with recently being finalists at Wacken Metal Battle Canada, Dissension's eclectic mix of thrash, black and power metal attacks the darker side of human nature, reaching epic heights and somber depths. Their debut's ten brutal assaulting tracks were produced by Kevin Jardine of Uplift Productions, (Slaves on Dope, What Comes To Life, One) and mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, Priestess, Half Moon Run).

    Vocalist / guitarist Nathan Afilalo comments:

    "Having been a band for about six years, we have long anticipated the great day where we could let our music take flight upon the winds of the world.  With that in mind, Of Time and Chronic Disease is a summation of our music since it contains some of our very earliest songs to some of our latest. The album has to be taken as a whole, as the individual songs all represent a different facet of the whole that is our music. It's like a hydra, the beast can only truly be slain if you remove all of its heads and immerse yourself in the dark pools of its blood."

    The band will be holding a CD launch in Montreal, QC on September 13th at Foufounes Electriques with local support from Skeleris, Murtenscythe, Intonate, Citizen Vicious.

    "They rocked the stage and made the crowd scream, wanting more...I was completely blown away by Bobby’s powerful pipes, along with Mike’s back up vocals and melodic/heavy guitar playing. The two of them put together make a beautiful duet. I loved Ryan’s headbanging moves and bad ass bass playing. The band overall has great chemistry on stage, and very good stage presence overall." - TheSceneMagazine.ca

    "the dynamic vocals and solid production value of this 5-track stunner are reminiscent of the great unplugged sessions of the 90’s. The talented quartet delivers each track with such flawless ability that I’m sure there is a long-life ahead for this band." - NewCanadianMusic.ca (Revolution Sessions Review)

    "I love this!!! It’s a bit mainstream but the energy is delicious. I already know I must see a live show by these guys. “Control” is still my favorite but all these songs rock." - Hip Rock Magazine

    " a fine slice of modern rock. Think Chevelle, Faktion, Submersed and those kinds of bands and you are in the right ballpark. The production is very good for this style of music with a nice sound to especially the drums. They sound huge!

    First out is Let Go, a nice start that shows us what we are in for here, complete with some screaming as well. Second out is the very Chevelle-esque song Control, also a nice song with a very emotional vocal performance from singer Bobby Noakes. Overall the vocals are great and so are the tunes. I am very intrigued to see what they can do with a full length album.

    I think that fans of tough modern rock should give this a listen. 16 minutes of very promising stuff! Check it out today!" - Melodic.net (Self titled EP Review)

    "Breached has a dynamic hard rock sound that would appeal to Soundgarden fans. This five-song EP features heavy riffing, powerful vocals, and a rhythm section as solid as the Canadian Shield." - NewCanadianMusic

    “They always put on a good show and their music is getting better and better. For a band who has only been around about two years, they have accomplished quite a bit” – Fridae TV (FridaeTV.com)

    “Singer Bobby Noakes has a powerful voice with a hard edge and excellent supporting band” – T Mak World (TMAKWorld.com)

    “Breached has bottled that delicious era of “hit you in the heart” rock and brought it back to unleash on audiences” – Amber Waves (Open 'Til Midnight)

    1. Deadly Prey
    2. Heat Lightning

        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)
