The hope here is that the progenitor of Nevermore can be revived. Will we find Sanctuary again after all these years? Unfortunately not. Consider Refuge Denied.

Rating: 5 Listening to Into The Mirror Black and Refuge Denied again in anticipation of this... There's a high chance I'll be disappointed, since they can never top those...

Rating: 4 Never expected it to top their early works, but this is beyond average.

Beyond average is probably too much credit haha

Rating: 8 If you expected something similar to Nevermore... you're wrong. This is different.

Although I prefer Nevermore... I've liked this album.

That's exactly what I'm hearing. Nevermore without the instensity.

Seems decent enough.

So, they never should have called it Sanctuary, even though the line-up is for most parts Sanctuary and not Nevermore.

no one said they should call it differently. it's just that it's less speed/power metal and more of the Nevermore-developed style..

I agree. But there's a lot of bands that should've changed their names over the years due to changing to playing vastly different styles IMO.

Rating: 8 As someone who never got that into Sanctuary, and who has lost a bit of his enthusiasm for Nevermore, I really didn't have high hopes for this, and actually considered giving it a miss. However, I really quite enjoyed it - I think Warrel sounds great on this, and I really dig some of the solo work on it. It's not amazing or anything, but perfectly decent and I preferred it as a listening experience to quite a lot of this year's releases from some other older bands.
