Sanctuary Inception Vinyl LP

Legendary metal act Sanctuary's presumed lost 1986 studio recordings are now being released for the very first time courtesy of Century Media! Inception is the official "prequel" to the band's 1988 metal classic Refuge Denied, recordings which guitarist Lenny Rutledge discovered recently and which were magically restored, remixed and remastered by Zeuss (Queensrÿche, Hatebreed). Rutledge comments: "I found the masters in my barn. The second floor of the barn is on top of our current recording studio and is very rough and open to the elements. The ground level is where we recorded the bulk of 'The Year The Sun Died'. We found the masters in an unknown box in the barn, full of water and just wasting away."

Zeuss explains further how the Inception album was realized: "I got a call one day and Lenny said that he had discovered these tapes and had them transferred to digital. I was in the area and stopped over to check it out. The recordings were still in decent shape. We agreed that we wanted it to sound as good as possible without taking away from the original vibe and vision of what the band had back then. After a year of mixing on and off we were able to resurrect these original demos. I hope everyone enjoys these recordings as much as I did working on them especially being a huge fan myself."

Recorded in March of 1986 ("Soldiers Of Steel," "Battle Angels") at Triad Studios in Redmond, Washington and Studio One in White Center between April and July 1986, Inception offers such previously unreleased highlights as "Dream of The Incubus" and "I Am Insane" as well as several classic Refuge Denied songs that are burning with fervor and intensity. Apart from being expanded by art courtesy of Ed Repka, Inception is filled to the brim with tons of rare photos, flyers, early art designs, sketches plus detailed liner notes allowing you to delve deep into Sanctuary's history.
