Hello, everyone. MissTainted back with another artist review today.
Today, I will be reviewing the music of Soul Sanctuary, a 6 piece heavy metal/metalcore band from the UK. Click here to check them out, and enjoy the review!
Soul Sanctuary is a 6-piece heavy metal/metalcore band from the UK. The band is made up of:
Luke Gibson - Vocals/production
Micheal Burrough - Vocals
Edward Stevens - Guitar
Anthony Montague - Guitar
Jamie Hicks - Drums
Paul Gooding - Bass
Founded in 2008, Soul Sanctuary has made an impact in the musical world from the beginning. They have been heavily influenced by bands such as Pantera, Bullet for my Valentine, Linkin Park, Slipknot, and more similar. Being a big BFMV fan myself, I can certainly hear that influence.
Their debut album 'Afterlife' was released Halloween of 2009. The band self-produces and even releases on their own label, Forsaken Memory Records.
In 2011, they followed up with the single 'Lest We Forget', in an effort to raise money for the victims of the Earthquake that struck Japan. The band has consistently supported charities and helped out.
They are working tirelessly on an upcoming release - I have no doubt it will be completely awesome - and utterly addictive!
Not only is the music of Soul Sanctuary professional sounding (as in professionally recorded with a clean and clear, high quality sound), but the songs themselves are crafted with a high level of music skill. It's easy to tell from one listen that these guys are gifted at what they do.
The music of Soul Sanctuary can rock out side by side against any of the metal/rock legends that I know of.
These tunes make you want to turn the volume up and listen over and over and over. At present moment, I am on my third listen through, 'Heart Attack'! Everything about the band and their music keeps you pressing that repeat button. Their energy. Their lyrics. Their style. And not everyone can scream that well, either! A good scream is highly pleasant on the metal lover's ears.
Check out the music of Soul Sanctuary today. You certainly won't regret it.
