Biography

There are at least eight artists with the name Sanctuary:

1) Sanctuary is a band founded in Seattle, Washington in 1985 consisting of Warrel Dane (vocals), Lenny Rutledge (guitar), Sean Blosl (guitar), Jim Sheppard (bass), and Dave Budbill (drums). Former Metallica and Megadeth guitarist Dave Mustaine was the influential force in getting the band signed to Epic Records. He produced their first album and played guitar on their cover of Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit. The band was dissolved in 1991, following pressure from Epic Records to fit in with the flourishing Seattle scene. Warrel Dane and Jim Sheppard disagreed with this change, and left to form Nevermore.

In May 2010 Warrel Dane stated that Santuary were to reform with the original line-up to record a new album and tour.

    Great new album. If they do such albums, I will miss Nevermore a little less...

    I was actually expecting the new album to suck, but ended up liking it way more than expected. Sounds nothing at all like the early Sanctuary records, but I suppose since they sound nothing like each other to begin with, that shouldn't be anticipated anyway.

    The new album is really good. Sounds to me quite a lot like Nevermore minus Jeff and his amazing playing style. Not saying the guitar players here aren't excellent, but when you've heard the best, it's hard to enjoy second best as much. Nevertheless, Dane's voice is in excellent shape, and I think the album will crack my top 20 at least for this year.

    I really missed Warrel's voice during these years... Wonderful album! Anyway, Nevermore and Sanctuary are both stellar (even if Nevermore is way better, in my opinion).

    Nah, Nevermore should never have disbanded. New Sanctuary is good, but still a step back for Dane.

    lots of hyperbole on this page. solid enough album after a 25 year hiatus, but not even close to the level of Into the Mirror Black or the first several Nevermore albums (up to Dreaming Neon Black).

    AOTY for sure. This kills anything Nevermore did, or early Sanctuary as well for that matter. It's straight-forward six string thrash at it's finest. None of the loomis wankery.
