SANCTUARY was formed in Seattle in 1985, they released two studio albums on Epic Records, “Refuge Denied” in 1987 and “Into the Mirror Black” in 1989. Worldwide touring with the likes of Megadeth, Warlock, Fates Warning and Death Angel, just to name a few, followed each album. Singer Warrel Dane’s sky high vocals combined with guitarist Lenny Rutledge’s more mature take on classic thrash riffs separated SANCTUARY from the throes of metal bands struggling to get noticed as at the time. Simply put, SANCTUARY offered something fresh sounding in the muddled world of ‘80s thrash.
