SANCTUARY coming to Europe for their “Into The Mirror Black 30th Anniversary” tour in the fall 2021 with support from HALCYON WAY!
Seattle, Washington based metal veterans SANCTUARY will be coming back to Europe in the fall 2021 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their classic record ‘Into The Mirror Black’ (1990) and its remastered special edition release, due October 9th, 2020 via Century Media Records.
Even though the initial plans to commemorate this big anniversary live in 2020 with current singer Joseph Michael (Witherfall) had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, fear not, because the band will still be playing ‘Into The Mirror Black’ in its entirety in 2021 and the anniversary of this great album will still be celebrated accordingly.
Originally formed back in 1985 SANCTUARY are one of the most unique and captivating acts to emerge. After quickly having established the band as a household name for high-class metal and having gathered supporters all around the globe with their first two albums ‘Refuge Denied’ (1988) and ‘Into The Mirror Black’ (1990) the band´s commercial career came to an unfortunate halt, leading to the creation and rise of Nevermore. In 2011 though, Sanctuary reformed again, celebrated its live comeback, put out their third album, ‘The Year The Sun Died’ in 2014 and are now more than eager to start a new chapter in the band´s history. Both by staying true to their roots and fans from back in the days and by still being at the ravages of time when it comes to the remastered sound of their most successful album ‘Into The Mirror Black’ attracting new fans all over the world.
The album was carefully remastered by Zeuss (Queensrÿche, Iced Earth, Overkill) to make it sound a bit fuller and heavier without losing the original feel and the extra tracks are real gems for SANCTUARY devotees. Its gloomy atmosphere and thought-provoking lyrics, its brilliant mix borderlining heavy and thrash metal, its stellar guitar work and the expressive vocals of the one and only Warrel Dane (R.I.P.) are just some of the reasons why this record stood the test of time.
And why this tour will be one for the books for sure!
Support will be coming from Atlanta, Georgia based progressive power metal band HALCYON WAY.
