Canadian power thrashers Sanktuary are streaming their upcoming debut album Something Fierce via SoundCloud – listen below! The eight track power thrash thrill ride was released on Tuesday, July 2, 2013 via Canadian metal label Spread The Metal Records and is available NOW! Spawning from high school friendship and growing into something much more epic, 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.

Check out this free download of “Heat Lightning” from emerging Canadian metal band Sanktuary. The band comes from Whitehorse, Yukon, one of the two territories in Canada and not necessarily a hotbed of growing metal acts. You could say that the members of Sanktuary were born for rock n’ roll, travelling from Yukon to Nova Scotia and loving every minute of it. The four-piece band grew from high school friendships that turned musical and went beyond just jamming in your parents’ basement. They got things started with back to back EPs, first their self-released debut in 2009 followed by Black Magic Brew in 2010.
