Sanctuary returns to NYC and will perform the entire “Refuge Denied” album with support from Ghost Ship Octavius.
Earlier this morning, a promoter friend had posted a reflective word of “thanks” to former Nevermore current Sanctuary singer Warrel Dane and after some initial shock the news hit his online community of friends and associates like a steel rod to the jar. Warrel Dane had indeed passed away only a few hours earlier. The singer suffered a heart attack while in Sao Paolo, Brazil. He was 56 years of age.
The first time that I ever heard Warrel sing was when he was in the band Sanctuary, and was the song “Future Tense” that I found being a part of a compilation cassette that a friend had given me. It was some sort of record label promotional thing and while I was hooked on the track, I never got around to finding the album nor seeing the band. The above and below photos hail from a Sanctuary appearance in 2012 when they were a reunited group. They sounded terrific for sure and it brought a lot of people back in time. It was the first of three times that I would get to see the band performing.
A team-up of titanic Metal proportions as Overkill and Symphony X share the co-headlining duties for a brief tour. They will be joined by Sanctuary so you know this night is going be a thrill ride.
